Tech Updates

Nillion has released the second version of its SDK, a leap forward from the initial developer preview last month. Version 0.2.1 brings substantial improvements and new features that matter to everyone—developer or not. Let’s take a look:

Better Privacy for Everyday Apps

Imagine a world where your personal data isn’t at constant risk of being exposed. Nillion’s latest SDK update is a step towards that reality, offering:

  • Enhanced Privacy: The addition of private equality operations and advanced bit-shifting capabilities means that data can be processed with even greater confidentiality. This means better security protocols and safer environments for handling sensitive information.
  • Empowering Innovation: The increase in data size—from 100KB to 1MB—means that more substantial and sensitive information can be securely processed and stored.This means developers can create applications that weren’t possible before, leading to innovative services and products in the market that can benefit all users.

We’ve also made the SDK more user-friendly. Updates to the nada tool mean developers can now build, test, and deploy applications more intuitively, speeding up the process of bringing secure products to market.

The Real-World Impact

The enhanced privacy and security features in Nillion’s SDK ensure that any service powered by Nillion’s technology is better equipped to safeguard user data from cyber threats. This is especially critical in contexts where AI is utilized to process personal data, as it guarantees that the AI operates within a secure framework that prioritizes user privacy.

Each upgrade to our technology stack contributes to a safer, more secure internet where private information remains protected. As more services adopt these advanced technologies, the foundation of trust in digital interactions is reinforced, fostering greater confidence in using digital services for everyday activities.

About Nillion

Nillion is humanity’s first Blind Computer. It is powered by a decentralized network of nodes that enables “Blind Computation” through the coordination and orchestration of privacy enhancing technologies (PETs) such as multi-party computation (MPC), fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) and zero-knowledge proofs (ZKP). Nillion believes Blind Computation will become the internet’s base layer for all private data as PETs continue to mature. Nillion has attracted a notable initial cohort of Blind Computation builders across AI, DeFi, medical data, custody, wallets, global identity, messaging, and more.

The Nillion development company, Nilogy, was incubated by CoinList’s seed program.
