    Gosh, not a single mention of Craig Gentry and IBM? When I heard the analogy using Alice’s gloveboxes, it all started to make sense to me. I watched Craig disagreed with Adi Shamir at RSA 2009 and win the argument, so then I knew he was the real deal.

    Hi Too Tall Sid – thanks for the back links to IBM, they did a lot of interesting theoretical work, but really what matters is the proof. Theory is awesome, but once you develop the POC code, everything takes off from there. That is why it was not mentioned.
