Concrete Operates oN Ciphertexts Rapidly by Extending TfhE

concrete is a Rust crate (library) meant to abstract away the details of Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) to enable non-cryptographers to build applications that use FHE.

FHE is a powerful cryptographic tool, which allows computation to be performed directly on encrypted data without needing to decrypt it first.


use concrete::{ConfigBuilder, generate_keys, set_server_key, FheUint8};
use concrete::prelude::*;

fn main() {
    let config = ConfigBuilder::all_disabled()

    let (client_key, server_key) = generate_keys(config);


    let clear_a = 27u8;
    let clear_b = 128u8;

    let a = FheUint8::encrypt(clear_a, &client_key);
    let b = FheUint8::encrypt(clear_b, &client_key);

    let result = a + b;

    let decrypted_result: u8 = result.decrypt(&client_key);

    let clear_result = clear_a + clear_b;

    assert_eq!(decrypted_result, clear_result);
