NuCypher: Private data on public blockchains


NuCypher is a decentralized cryptographic access control system that addresses the limitations of using consensus networks to securely store and manipulate private, encrypted data. It provides encryption and cryptographic access control, performed by a decentralized network, leveraging proxy re-encryption. Unlike centralized KMS as a service solutions, it doesn’t require trusting a service provider. NuCypher enables sharing of sensitive data for both decentralized and centralized applications, providing security infrastructure for applications from healthcare to identity management to decentralized content marketplaces.


MacLane Wilkison is the cofounder and CEO of NuCypher, a data privacy layer for blockchain and decentralized applications. He is a software engineer and former tech, media, and telecommunications investment banker at Morgan Stanley.
