Intel and Microsoft just released news about signing an agreement (DARPA Selects Researchers to Accelerate Use of Fully Homomorphic Encryption) with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
Intel will be joining DARPA and Intel and Microsoft on their DPRIVE program. The program focuses on improving and enhancing new ways of Data Privacy Protection, and the main target is to develop fully homomorphic encryption (FHE). Intel terms it as ‘the final frontier’ in data privacy, mentioning that Microsoft has been working with the U.S. Government on this matter for a while now.
“Fully homomorphic encryption remains the holy grail in the journey to keep data safe while in use. Despite strong achievements in believed execution situations and other confidential computing technologies to encrypt data while at rest and in transit, data is unencrypted during computation, opening many attacks at this stage. This somehow inhibits our ability to share and extract the maximum value out of data fully. We are pleased to be chosen as a technology partner by DARPA and look forward to working with them as well as Microsoft to advance this next chapter in confidential computing and unlock the promise of fully homomorphic encryption for all.”Rosario Cammarota, principal engineer, Intel Labs, and principal investigator, DARPA DPRIVE program
The reason behind FHE being so important is that this technology will allow us to encrypt data even during the computation stage.
Intel and Microsoft discuss in detail this matter here :
Intel and Microsoft Details
Intel is mainly a company that makes processors for computers and laptops since the dawn of modern computers Intel has dominated the industry. No other company was able to stand in front of them except Ryzen 😬. That is another story but still intel widely used all around the world. Even if a person doesn’t know anything about computers or processors still if we ask him has ever heard of intel he will say yes.
Yes, intel is widely spread all around the world. 70 % of the computer processor market is dominated by intel. They sell processors named Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9. don’t ask me where did core i1 i2 i4 i6 i8 go 😑. I won’t be able to tell because I don’t know maybe intel themselves don’t know. Now we can see intel is collaborating with Windows it is a piece of great news for windows users with intel processors. They will have much better security and a much smoother user experience. We all support this decision of intel and Microsoft.
Intel and Microsoft Collaboration :
If Intel collaborates with Microsoft this would be great for all the intel and windows users. CPU-based software will run much smoother in windows with intel processors and we can hope that premier pro will not crash 🥱🙄. Security will also be increased with this collaboration. Windows will be more secure and safe 😃. There will be less risk of being attacked by ransomware. Intel is working on collaborating with Microsoft on the Darpa project. We highly support it and we are eagerly waiting for it. Hope this project will start soon so that we can be more secure and safe.
Did you know: Bill Gates belongs from a middle-class family and he started Microsoft at the garage of his home with his 4 friends and now look they all are billionaires. So whenever your friend tells you to trust you in a project or a start-up you should trust him how knows you might also be a billionaire with him. So always trust your genius friend and go with the flow. You might also become successful with him.
Conclusion to Intel and Microsoft Alliance
We all are looking forward to the success stories of the alliance between Intel and Microsoft. Let us see what fate reveals!
