Trustable homomorphic computation

Project description

Trustable homomorphic computation

THC is a Python package that provides a practical framework for cost-effective trustable homomorphic computation.

It leverages the modular extension technique, which was developed to protect embedded cryptographic implementations against fault injection attacks, to ensure the integrity of a computation delegated to an untrusted third-party.


You can either install THC from PyPI using pip with the following command:

$ pip3 install thc

Or you can download its source code and run the following command in the root directory of the repository:

$ pip3 install .

You can check that the installation went well by running the included test demo:

$ python3 -m thc.demo.faults


THC depends on the pycrypto package to generate prime numbers.

You can probably install it using your distribution's package manager: it's the python3-crypto package on Debian and derivatives.

If you choose to let pip install pycrypto, you will need to have some Python development packages installed as it needs to compile C extensions. On Debian and derivatives, the necessary packages are named python3-dev and python3-wheel.


In addition to the previously mentioned test demo of THC, an electronic voting software (server and client) is provided in the thc.demo.evoting package.

Please refer to its README for more information.
