IARPA Announces Launch of HECTOR

Press Release

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, announces today a multi-year research effort called the Homomorphic Encryption Computing Techniques with Overhead Reduction (HECTOR) program. Today’s computing systems and data services are constrained by a small cryptographic toolset that does not allow data to be processed while in a secure state.
