Fhenix partners with EigenLayer to develop FHE coprocessors

Fhenix, an Ethereum layer-2 platform that wants to bring fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) to smart contracts, revealed that it will be working with EigenLayer to develop FHE coprocessors.

A coprocessor is an additional processor designed to perform specialized tasks in an often more efficient way than a central processing unit. An example of this in the industry today is zero-knowledge (zk) coprocessors, which are used to scale zk rollup computations off-chain.

FHE coprocessors are similar, though their specific focus would be to enable computing over encrypted data without having to decrypt the information first. FHE coprocessors will ensure that sensitive, complicated computational…
