Fully Homomorphic Encryption: A Mathematical Introduction

Authors: Sara Logsdon


This paper offers a mathematical introduction to fully homomorphic encryption, a concept that enables computation on encrypted data. We trace the historical development of FHE, describe Fully Homomorphic Encryption over the Torus (TFHE) and how it performs certain mathematical operations, and explore bootstrapping and the possibility for adjusting computational depth. This paper equips readers with a brief understanding of FHE’s evolution and the essential mechanisms facilitating practical implementation.
