SEAL up your data just like Microsoft: Redmond open-sources 'simple' homomorphic encryption blueprints

Homomorphic encryption has seen massive performance improvements over the past years

Yes. I agree that we're now at the point where it looks practical for certain niche application domains.

I'm looking forward to seeing similar improvements in verifiable computation, which would address some similar problems for distributed computation for some application domains. The "nearly practical" Pinocchio system was introduced, what, three years ago? Haven't looked into what's been happening in this area since.
