IBM, Zero-Knowledge Systems to Power Global Privacy Infrastructure
Page 1 of 1
Zero-Knowledge will be able to offer Internet Service Providers (ISPs) a resolution to online privacy concerns through the Freedom Network.
The network routes encrypted data through an untraceable path in real time, assuring privacy for a variety of applications, including online consumer privacy protection.
Over the next 12 months, IBM and Zero-Knowledge will install 1,000 IBM Netfinity 4000R servers running Zero-Knowledge's Freedom software, at ISPs and telecommunication backbone nodes throughout the world.
The Freedom Network currently includes more than 100 ISPs on four continents running Freedom servers, in countries such as the US, UK, Netherlands, Japan, Canada, Austria and Australia.
Zero-Knowledge creates software and services that enable privacy through advanced mathematics, cryptography and source code. Freedom 1.0 traffic is linked to untraceable digital identities called "nyms" rather than users' true identities, and is encrypted and routed through the Freedom Network, a globally distributed network of Freedom Servers hosted by ISPs and independent server operators around the world.
