I’m pleased to announce that NuCypher has joined Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies hosted by The Linux Foundation.

As a member of Hyperledger, we will contribute our expertise in data privacy and security to help further the commercial adoption of distributed ledgers. The goals of NuCypher and Hyperledger are aligned, and proxy re-encryption fulfills the promise of distributed ledger technology as it relates to secure data sharing and collaboration. We are very excited to bring proxy re-encryption to the Hyperledger ecosystem.

Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director of Hyperledger comments, “We are excited by the momentum of Hyperledger in 2018, and NuCypher only accelerates that momentum. NuCypher’s data privacy technology provides a framework for building a variety of data-sensitive applications based on blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. From finance to healthcare, business applications need to securely store and manage sensitive data, which makes NuCypher’s technology a natural fit for the Hyperledger community.”
