The Internet today is vulnerable to the profit-driven surveillance of users by corporations. Yet privacy-enhancing technologies can enable everyone to communicate privately and securely without being spied upon, even by nation-states which can observe the entire Internet.
The purpose of Nym is to develop the infrastructure necessary to give the oppressed the freedom to communicate and organise without giving up on privacy. Nym is building a decentralized authentication and payment protocol which will enable developers to build their own sustainable privacy-enhanced services without relying on the surveillance of users.
Nym is partnering with the stealth startup Kryptik to release a mixnet which has superior privacy properties to Tor against global passive adversaries. This mixnet is the culmination of years of academic research into surveillance proof networking by the PANORAMIX project.
Nym can also enable services such as decentralized secure messaging and private cryptocurrency transactions, without leaking metadata such as who is communicating with who… and when.
Let the present order tremble at a cryptographic revolution. The users have nothing to lose but their chains. We have a world to win.
The NYM protocol is a powerful privacy-enhanced authentication protocol which allows users to embed arbitrary attributes in decentralized, unlinkable (re-randomizable), and publicly verifiable credentials.
The NYM protocol provides users and service providers with a private and decentralized replacement for Facebook Connect and Google Sign-In. Our partners are already building a number of powerful NYM-enabled apps.
The mixnet sends all network traffic through layers of mix-nodes, using the Sphinx packet format (also used in the Lightning Network) so that all packets of data are the same size and routing information is kept private.
Each mix-node in the network delays the messages and generates fake “dummy messages” to create a uniform pattern of traffic which obfuscates patterns for adversaries observing the network. Future use-cases include serving as a “decentralized VPN”.
A cross-platform experimental wallet supporting Mimblewimble, and potentially other privacy-enhanced cryptocurrencies including Moneroand Zcash.
The wallet supports the mixnet automatically by default to provide privacy on the p2p level.
Integration with the NYM protocol is in progress in order to enable privacy-enhanced authentication for other privacy enhanced services like secure messaging.
