If Knowledge Is Power, Is Zero Knowledge About Control?

We have all heard the phrase “Knowledge Is Power” or perhaps stated another way, “Knowledge Is Potential Power”. Well, back to this is a moment. Let’s first define Zero Knowledge.

Zero Knowledge

blog-img-5The next frontier in privacy, far beyond standard in-cloud encryption is known as Zero Knowledge. Zero Knowledge protocol is a method by which one party (the prover) can prove to another party (the verifier) that a given statement is true, without conveying any additional information apart from the fact that the statement is indeed true.

With this method, customers use encryption software owned and operated by their cloud service provider to encrypt files locally before sending them to the cloud to be stored. By encrypting the data beforehand, the cloud service provider doesn’t have access to your encryption key. So if anyone attempted to access files in a Zero Knowledge cloud, he or she could access the files, but would have no way to decrypt them.

This new frontier of privacy means nothing leaves your device until after it is encrypted and is never decrypted until it is unlocked with your credentials and a random access code on your device. Therefore, your data may never be compromised through mismanagement, prying eyes, or external bodies looking to gain access,

So your knowledge of your data is your power and should not be given to another intentionally or accidentally by your cloud service provider, because the potential power of such breach could be quite damaging to you. Therefore, seek Zero Knowledge with Haystack and do way with either or and have both, power and control.So your knowledge of your data is your power and should not be given to another intentionally or accidentally by your cloud service provider, because the potential power of such breach could be quite damaging to you.
