Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) is one of those things that when you first hear about it, you can’t quite wrap your head around just how powerful this technology is.

FHE is a type of encryption that allows computations to be performed on encrypted data, without ever needing to decrypt it. This might sound like magic, but it’s a real technology that’s set to revolutionize how we handle data privacy.

I first learned about this when I reached out to Zama, a cutting-edge cryptography company working to make FHE into a new Internet standard. The concept was so exciting to explore that I sat down with their ecosystem lead, Jason, to talk about Zama’s work on FHE in Fintech and Cryptocurrency.

The discussion is available on Spotify and Apple Music if you want to jump straight into that.

What is Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) ?

FHE allows computations to be performed on encrypted data without needing to decrypt it first, but what does that actually mean?
