    --------------
    Presentation (Martin Nocker, 15min): HE-MAN – Homomorphically Encrypted MAchine learning with oNnx models. Machine learning (ML) algorithms play a crucial role in the success of products and services, especially with the abundance of data available. Fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) is a promising technique that enables individuals to use ML services without sacrificing privacy. However, integrating FHE into ML applications remains challenging. Existing implementations lack easy integration with ML frameworks and often support only specific models. To address these challenges, we present HE-MAN, an open-source two-pa(rty machine learning toolset. HE-MAN facilitates privacy-preserving inference with ONNX models and homomorphically encrypted data. With HE-MAN, both the model and input data remain undisclosed. Notably, HE-MAN offers seamless support for a wide range of ML models in the ONNX format out of the box. We evaluate the performance of HE-MAN on various network architectures and provide accuracy and latency metrics for homomorphically encrypted inference.

    (7) Watch on LFAI landscape projects - which projects have been checked against principles?

    (8) How to ensure trust in open source package - how to organize audit to ensure files not corrupted? See Factsheets link below for a start.
