We develop usable products that advance digital security and protect the privacy of users.
Keep your data private in our cloud
Secure Cloud Storage
PrivateStorage will launch in 2021. As firm believers in protection of our customers’ privacy, we will offer an end-to-end encrypted secure storage product that aims to minimize the collection of any data related to its users. PrivateStorage implements privacy and security by design, not by policy. We cannot see your data when it is stored by us.
Features: Client-side encryption, accountless authentication
Zero Knowledge Access Passes: anonymous, token-based authorization protocol
Business Data Privacy Problem
Zero Knowledge Access Passes attempt to solve the issue of privacy-preserving payments. This anonymous, token-based authorization protocol based on Privacy Pass for use by PrivateStorage helps facilitate an online exchange of value while disconnecting the payment and service data that is gathered on customers.
Features: Ability to separate personal payment data from personal service-use data, use of zero-knowledge proofs
Get files from one computer to another, safely
Secure, Identity-less File Transfer
Magic Wormhole, created by developer Brian Warner, is a clever way to send files easily and securely. The codes are short and human-pronounceable, using a phonetically-distinct wordlist. The receiving side offers tab-completion on the codewords, so usually only a few characters must be typed. Wormhole codes are single-use and do not need to be memorized.
In 2020, we were awarded funding from the NGI Trust program to explore commercial opportunities for Magic Wormhole. We’ve named this project, MW4ALL — Magic Wormhole for All. We are investigating how to develop a sustainable product built on Magic Wormhole and to determine how to scale it technically without compromising its security. In other words, bringing Magic Wormhole to the masses for everyone to enjoy safe and simple file sharing.
Features: Identity-less, files not stored on third-party servers
