End to End Encryption
|Reported by:||picotech||Owned by:|
I read about the Mylar platform on Slashdot.org <http://yro.slashdot.org/story/14/03/26/0352201/mit-researchers-create-platform-to-build-secure-web-apps-that-never-leak-data>. It is built on the Meteor framework and decrypts user data only in the browser, even website administrators cannot see what the user has on their account.
The developers of Mylar, who also helped develop CryptoDB, have already made an instant messaging application based on it which could be easily integrated into MediaGoblin for social networking features since it is already built. Even converting MediaGoblin to the Mylar platform might be easy since the Mylar developers only had to change about 35 lines of code for the applications they have already converted to Mylar.
Let me know what you think,
Here's Mylar's website on MIT servers <http://css.csail.mit.edu/mylar/>.

I just double checked the Meteor framework site, so Mylar does support HTML and CSS since it uses Meteor.

Thanks very much for taking the time to make this suggestion, and sorry it hasn't been responded to sooner.
For now I'll close this ticket, but if you are motivated to do some further thinking and come up with some practical examples of how this could work, please don't hesitate to re-open the ticket.
Thanks again for your suggestion.
Another important feature of Mylar is that, even though it encrypts everything, it allows content to be searched.
