Operations on encrypted types

NOTE: The shift operators
TFHE.shr
andTFHE.shl
can take any encrypted typeeuintX
as a first operand and either auint8
or aeuint8
as a second operand, however the second operand will always be computed modulo the number of bits of the first operand. For example,TFHE.shr(euint64 x, 70)
will actually be equal toTFHE.shr(euint64 x, 6)
because70 % 64 = 6
. This is in contrast to the classical shift operators in Solidity where there is no intermediate modulo operation, so for instance anyuint64
shifted right via>>
would give a null result.
Overloaded operators +
, 
, *
, &
, ... on encrypted integers are supported (using for). As of now, overloaded operators will call the versions without an overflow check.
More information about the supported operations can be found in the function specifications page or in the TFHErs docs.
