Fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) is a cryptographic technique allowing a user to run arbitrary computations over encrypted data. This is particularly useful for computing statistical analytics over sensitive data. In this work, we introduce a Julia module, Fhe.jl, which supports running Julia functions over an FHE-encrypted data set. We do so by using symbolic execution to convert a Julia function into its circuit representation, which we then evaluate over the encrypted data. In this talk, we will discuss the progress we have made so far, some of the challenges we have run into, and how we hope to work with the Julia community to continue our efforts.
