This is the era of communication and data sharing, which requires secure and confidential transactions. Cryptography is the science that concerns the maintenance and analysis of security, which allows authorized access to information. Cloud computing is one of the new applications, where cryptography is expected to unveil its power to provide desired security solutions. In particular, fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) is one of the main pillars to exploit the complete advantages of cloud computing.
