The mapping account establishes isomorphic or homomorphic relations (6) between mathematical structures from within a mathematical theory and mathematical structures recognized in the idealized physical system (Pincock, 2004; Bueno & Colyvan, 2011).
Homomorphic encryption offers the tantalizing goal of being able to process sensitive information in encrypted form, without needing to decrypt it first, and therefore to compromise on the privacy and security of the citizens and organizations that provide the input data.
