(SecurityBrief.au) IXUP’s platform is now implementing Microsoft SEAL, a homomorphic encryption library developed by Microsoft Research. This significantly improves IXUP’s data analytics platform and makes it one of the first to offer this post-quantum security feature.
“Homomorphic encryption is a very exciting and innovative field that opens a new world of possibilities in terms of trust and privacy, removing barriers to collaboration in AI development and adoption, and we are looking forward to seeing the impact this advance in cryptography will have on IXUP’s customers moving forward. “We are extremely excited to see IXUP adopting Microsoft SEAL in their data analytics platform,” says Microsoft Research principal researcher Kristin Lauter.
Microsoft SEAL is a homomorphic encryption library that allows computations to be performed directly on encrypted data, unlike traditional encryption techniques that require decryption before any data manipulation can be done. The results of such encrypted computations remain encrypted, so any service built on Microsoft SEAL cannot learn either the inputs or the outputs of the computations it performs.
