Abstract
Homomorphic cryptography is a unique branch of cryptography concerned with the study of homomorphic cryptosystems. A homomorphic cryptosystem is one which has special mathematical properties that allow an untrusted third party to perform computations on encrypted data without the need to decrypt it. These cryptosystems have promising implications for the design of novel privacy-preserving protocols in a variety of applications such as electronic voting, multiparty computation, private information retrieval and private database queries.
