Applying Fully Homomorphic Encryption (Part 2)

This is the second part of a series on applying fully-homomorphic encryption. In the first post we went over what fully-homomorphic encryption (FHE) and shomewhat-homomorphic encryption (SHE) were and how they relate. In this post we' ll discuss actual applications. To structure the discussion, I' ll refer to some applications as direct and others as indirect. Indirect applications will refer to applications where FHE is used as a building block---usually with other components---to construct something else of interest.
