This subject qualifies as a Theoretical Computer Science concentration subject.
We will study both classical and modern technologies for
computing on encrypted data including, secure two-party
and multi-party computation protocols, fully homomorphic
encryption, functional encryption and program obfuscation.
We will discuss the recent exciting developments in these
areas, and discuss several open problems.
