Welcome to our new, redesigned newsletter — we hope you like it! Highlights over the past month include: Our CEO Liz Steininger speaking at Web 3.0 Conference, three published security audits, MoonMath Manual promotion, job vacancies, and more.
On January 27, our CEO, Liz Steininger, presented a session and spoke on a panel at Web 3.0 Conference. The panel discussion, ‘Transforming Privacy & Security’ (viewable above), explored a range of privacy issues, challenges and opportunities, from the importance of privacy by design to how zero knowledge proofs (ZKPs) can promote privacy in Web 3. Liz was joined on the panel by David Chaum, Kaliya Young, Eric Tung, David Morris and Rohit Jhunjhunwala.
In the session, ‘Enabling Privacy in Web 3’ (below), Liz outlined what privacy means in a Web 3 context, gave an overview of security best practices, and explained how our security consulting services contribute towards strengthening privacy and security in Web 3 (Videos are courtesy of Tech Circus).
In Case You Missed It
Our ‘2021 in Review: How We Contributed to Web3’ blog post, which outlines how we: Developed Web3 infrastructure for storage and file transfer, and supported access to it for at-risk user groups; Helped to expand the use of advanced cryptography in Web3, like zero-knowledge proofs; and strengthened the Web3 ecosystem with our security consulting services.
zk-SNARKs offer a new paradigm for privacy and can deliver on the original promise of blockchain: decentralization, scale and security.
Our upcoming MoonMath Manual is a guide to zk-SNARKs aimed at those with minimal experience in cryptography and programming. It begins with a theoretical foundation, and builds up to a point where the reader is able to implement complex, real-world zk-building blocks.
As firm believers in the protection of our users’ privacy, we developed PrivateStorage as a private, secure and end-to-end encrypted storage solution that minimizes the collection of 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.
