Privacy Enhancing Technologies, or PET’s, are a class of Advanced Cryptography that will enable data collaborations without the need to share or expose sensitive data.
We believe that Confidential Collaborative Computing is the next major development that will take place in the growth cycle of decentralised computing services. It will enable organisations to work together to provide services, solutions and advanced analytics that require inputs from a variety of different organisations without the need for those organisations to aggregate, share or expose their organisation’s data. We will explore how confidential data collaborations will become possible using a combination of technologies such as Secure Multiparty Computation, Zero Knowledge Proofs, Homomorphic Encryption and Trusted Execution Environments.
