    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)

    Is homomorphic encryption ready to deliver confidential cloud computing to enterprises?

    Yeah, cool stuff. But the performance hit is still HUGE.

    A little off the "main" of this thread, but I am starting out on a walk through ChaCha20 because AirVpn is using it and papers have it showing great promise. Just starting out to see what is going to be involved in creating a system disk (LUKS) partition using it. Many crypto's feel it is better and faster than AES. I don't use AES anyway.

    As homomorphic encryption gains steam, experts search for standards
