Compute-to-Data

Providing access to data in a privacy-preserving fashion

Quick Start

Motivation

The most basic scenario for a Publisher is to provide access to the datasets they own or manage. However, a Publisher may offer a service to execute some computation on top of their data. This has some benefits:

  • The data never leaves the Publisher enclave.
  • It’s not necessary to move the data; the algorithm is sent to the data.
  • Having only one copy of the data and not moving it makes it easier to be compliant with data protection regulations.

This page elaborates on the benefits.
