Abstract

In constructing a secure and reliable cloud computing environment, a fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) scheme is conceived as a major cryptographic tool, as it enables arbitrary arithmetic evaluation of a cipher text without revealing the plaintext. However, due to very high of fully homomorphic encryption systems stays impractical and unfit for real-time applications  One way to address this restriction is by using graphics processing unit (GPUs) and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) to produce homomorphic encryption schemes. This paper represents the hardware implementation of an encryption for enhancement van Dijk, Gentry, Halevi and Vaikuntanathan’s (DGHV) scheme over the integer (DGHV10) using FPGA technology for high speed computation and real time results. The proposed method was simulated via Vivado system generator tools. Then design systems of fully homomrphic encryption are implemented in an FPGA hardware successfully using NEXYS 4 DDR board with ARTIX 7 XC7A100T FPGA. The Experimental results show that the FPGA- based fully homomorphic encryption system is 63 times faster than the simulation based implementation.
