    IBM's new toolkit, which will soon be available for Linux, aims to give developers easier access to fully homomorphic encryption, a technology that protects sensitive data by allowing for computation and analysis of data while keeping it encrypted.

    Eleven years ago, IBM made a breakthrough in the development of fully homomorphic encryption (FHE), a technology that allows for computation and analysis of data while keeping it encrypted. FHE holds significant promise for a number of uses, IBM says -- particularly any operations that involve highly sensitive data that must be protected. 

    However, FHE remains a complicated technology that's hard to implement. IBM aims to change that with the release of new toolkits that should help developers start experimenting with FHE and eventually incorporate it into the products they build. The toolkit is available today in GitHub for MacOS and iOS, and it will soon be available for Linux and Android.
