A Privacy Layer for Ethereum
Acting as a digital notary, contracts will be able to assert their identity off-chain without requiring a third party confirmation of blockchain state. Integrating with tools like PGP, SSH, and TLS keep is a bridge to public private key infrastructure.Knowing when to expose private information is just as important as keeping it hidden. With keeps you can have trusts and estate plans automatically activated to expose instructions and transfer funds.
We introduce the keep, a new privacy primitive for developing smart contracts on public blockchains, enabling secure storage and usage of secrets, as well as supporting infrastructure, including the keep market and token. Our incremental approach to privacy infrastructure can be brought to market on the Ethereum public network, iterated on, and adapted for other public blockchains and cross-blockchain use.
