Lambda256 and CryptoLab partner to pioneer privacy-enhanced blockchain technology
Lambda256, the Blockchain-as-a-Service (Baas) arm of South Korea’s largest crypto exchange Upbit, has signed a business agreement with private AI technology developer CryptoLab to develop and commercialize technology that can enhance the privacy of data on blockchain networks, according to local news outlet Kyunghyang Games on Friday (KST).
Advanced privacy measures
The two firms will work together to develop various blockchain-based service platforms, such as a token securities offering (STO) platform, that will be equipped with strengthened privacy protection technology for data stored on blockchains.
Lambda256 has been leveraging its Web3 developer platform Luniverse to work with a plethora of businesses, including those in the security token industry, to help them build, deploy and manage blockchain networks. Some of its solutions include DID, a blockchain-based identity management system; Trace, a blockchain verification and tracking system; and Point, a blockchain-based loyalty rewards solution.
CryptoLab, on the other hand, has developed in-house homomorphic encryption technology that can encrypt data while allowing that data to still be operated on. The firm’s CEO, Chun Jeong-hee, who is also a professor at Seoul National University’s Department of Mathematical Science, was selected as a Fellow of the International Academy of Cryptography (IACR) this year in recognition of his contributions to the development of the field of cryptography.
“By combining Lambda256’s blockchain platform with our homomorphic encryption technology, we look forward to exchanging our technology and capabilities,” said Shin Jun-bum, CTO of Cryptolab. Jason Lee, CISO of Lambda256, also reaffirmed the companies’ joint goal of solving data privacy issues that occur in the blockchain space. He added that they would take this opportunity to bring blockchain to fields like finance and healthcare that are sensitive to data privacy.
