Simulation Study Based on Somewhat Homomorphic Encryption


At present study, homomorphic encryption scheme is most focusing on algorithm efficiency and security and the rare for homomorphic encryption simulation research. This paper for the Gentry’s Somewhat Homomorphic Encryption scheme for the simulation research, in clear text size within a certain range simulation was Somewhat Homomorphic Encryption scheme, and presents the relationship between the length of plaintext and ciphertext size.
