Building the next generation of privacy infrastructure

Existing internet protocols leak sensitive data that can be used without users knowledge — Nym is developing the infrastructure to prevent this data leakage by protecting every packet’s metadata at the network and application layers.

Nym Mixnet

The Nym mixnet is a multi purpose mixnet that prevents traffic analysis by an adversary capable of watching the entire network, including the NSA.

Nym Token (NYM)

The Nym TOKEN (NYM) incentivizes privacy and is used to make mixnet decentralized, sustainable and resilient.

Nym Credentials

Allow 3rd party apps to anonymize any arbitrary ‘key : value’ pairs, so users can privately reveal part or all of their data at their discretion for any necessary compliance and authentication.

An open and free internet requires privacy as a native property. Nym, created by an all-star team of privacy researchers, is the best way to achieve that. We are proud supporters of what they are doing.

Despite progress in zero-knowledge proof techniques for transaction-graph privacy, network-level privacy remains an open problem. Mixnets are a promising approach for this, and so the work Nym is doing on making mixnets practical for blockchain applications is really important.

Andrew Miller

Identity is one of the key roadblocks for blockchains to achieve large-scale adoption, but it’s also a potential privacy nightmare. Nym is the project that can offer an identity solution that truly respects our rights to privacy.

People were killed, tortured or imprisoned during the 2011 Tunisian Revolution because they relied on insecure tools to communicate and organize. Everyone, but most importantly activists, have an urgent need for a revolutionary project like Nym to be able to communicate without fear. To build a democracy we must first fight surveillance and there is one way to do it: anonymously.

Iness Ben Guirat

Tunisian activist

We are finding ourselves being ushered into a 1984 hive-mind world where our dreams, loves and weaknesses are nothing more than dossiers up for trade by corporate and government interests. It’s time we started to lay the road to alternative futures; incentivized, decentralized mixnets are a critical piece of the puzzle.

Decentralized identity is one of the greatest challenges facing the ‘web of transactions’ – without it, there will be continually increasing rates of fraud and cyber attack. Nym provides what is perhaps the first really secure authentication system for identity.
