Imagine being able to perform any computational operation over any kind of data but do it while the data is fully encrypted. That is the promise of fully homomorphic encryption.
Fully homomorphic encryption was first theorized in the 1970s, but the first proposal for a plausible construction of a fully homomorphic encryption scheme didn’t arrive until 2009. We are now in the fourth-generation of fully homomorphic encryption and although performance is still a blocker for many applications, there’s been a series of major breakthroughs allowing real world application to take advantage of the approach.
Dr. Avradip Mandal received his PhD from the University of Luxembourg where his research focused on cryptography, in particular homomorphic encryption and theoretical symmetric key cryptography. He joins the show to describe what homomorphic encryption is, how it works, the history, and breakthroughs.
AWS Nitro Enclaves is a service provided by AWS that enables customers to create isolated compute environments within their EC2 instances. Arvind Rague, Principal Specialist in EC2 and Confidential Computing at AWS, joins the show to explain confidential computing, AWS Nitro Enclaves, and the use cases this technology unlocks.
In this episode, Manish Ahluwalia, the field CTO of Skyflow, discusses the technical aspects of data residency and the usage of a data privacy vault. He explains the concept of data residency and data localization.
W. Curtis Preston has been working in backup and disaster recovery for nearly 30 years and has written five books on the subject. He joins the show to discuss backup and recovery missteps, best practices, and how Druva, the SaaS-based backup and recovery platform helps businesses offload backup responsibility.
