    Maybe not anytime soon but eventually...
    What worries me is that this homomorphic system is so much more complicated than encryption as most of us understand it today. I have been able to get a decent grasp of symmetric and asymmetric encryption but the last time I started reading up on homomorphic algorithms, I found myself completely overwhelmed. How would I know that it is truly secure and free from backdoors? (government mandated or otherwise)
