Homomorphic encrytpion could make it easier to use cloud computing power (in the future)

I recently had the opportunity to do a lightning talk at work on Homomorphic Encryption. The slides are available here, though, as it was a five minute lightning talk, the details are a little sparse. This paper showing an encryption scheme over the integers is a good detailed explanation of taking an encryption scheme and converting it into something that is fully homomorphic, and also demonstrates the costs that make such schemes currently impractical.

Craig Gentry’s thesis is also a very good read on what is a very clever technology.
