What got you interested in privacy?

As more and more of our information is stored and transacted online, we’ve seen that the existing approaches to ensuring privacy fall really short of best practices and the regulations that govern our data.

I wanted to find a way to protect our data without limiting its awesome potential to solve health, financial, and scientific applications. 

What do we need for this kind of data protection?

The state of the art crypto-systems that we use today like RSA rely on conditional security, because what they really depend on for their security is the fact that large numbers are difficult to determine if they are prime. That’s called prime factorization. 

Whereas crypto-systems that use information theoretic security (also known as Unconditional Security) are secure against adversaries with unlimited time and unlimited resources, which really are a far higher standard of security than any other existing approach. 

Safe against “unlimited time and compute resources,” are we talking about science fiction?

A few years ago this was science fiction, but today this technology is available and is practical. Our technology at TripleBlind is built on many years of solid technology that have been secure however impractical for a long time. 

Part of our innovations are to make it practical at scale for any type of data, for any type of algorithm. 

Best of all our process does not restrict the collective ability to harness the positive impact of a global data ecosystem.
