It’s mathe-magics !
State-of-Art encryption techniques allow now for processing calculations over sensitive data without ever accessing nor exposing the data in clear text. Confidential data can either be encrypted and stays encrypted during processing, and never is revealed in clear text anymore. Or confidential data stays in clear text and the calculation environment is protected by encryption, with no possibility to access to the underlying data in clear text.
It is like asking a question (aka a calculation) and getting an answer that is mathematically correct without ever accessing the underlying input.
Cosmian’s technology exploits “deep tech” encryption schemes – based on the most advanced, fundamental cryptographic research. Since its inception, Cosmian has received the support of world-renowned cryptographers and established strong ties with the top notch ENS Ulm/CNRS/Inria mathematical team led by M. David Pointcheval. And world-renowned cryptologist, M. Nigel Smart, Professor, at the COSIC//Computer Security & Industrial Cryptography group, KU Leuven.
These cryptographers share Cosmian’s passion for bridging the gap between fundamental research and impactful, everyday privacy-by-design applications.
