The Nym Protocol and How it Can Protect the Privacy of Your Users and Customers

Privacy developments are continually emerging and revolve around meeting the growing demand for data as a means of targeted advertising and compiling vast amounts of data for analysis. One of the leading methods for preserving privacy in the transition to a more privacy-oriented Internet stack is centered on the much-hyped NYm protocol — recently backed by crypto exchange giant Binance.

Nym is a mixnet protocol that integrates with cryptocurrency wallets and also provides anonymous online identity verification — similar to a privacy-focused Facebook or Google login for websites. The protocol is still under development but is worth evaluating as it can provide enhanced privacy assurances for your users and customers, a growing trend among the public.

At Sara Technologies, we value privacy and provide Cyber Security services to protect confidential assets from cyber attacks. The potential of privacy solutions like Nym can help preserve privacy for logging into web-based interfaces is huge. As such, we feel it is necessary to explain Nym and its potential advantages that it can bring to your organization once live.

What is The Nym Protocol?

Mixnets are network overlay routing protocols designed to mix input messages and spit out indecipherable outputs that cannot be linked to users through an end-to-end communication protocol. They employ public-key cryptography and are slowly gaining favor again after falling behind other overlay network protection services like Tor and I2P.

Nym enlists mixnets — specifically the Sphinx protocol — for secure and private messaging, payments, and authentication across public mediums. The project was born from extensive research into the PANORAMIX project and has significant hype surrounding due to its potential for replacing services like Facebook login that are prone to malware and manipulation to deanonymize users and steal passwords.

Nodes in the Nym mixnet obfuscate message details including the content, origin, and recipient. Further, the Nym mixnet can even be used to facilitate the future of decentralized VPNs, removing the counterparty risk associated with using VPN services today that precludes them from reaching their full potential.

Integration With Businesses and Crypto Wallets

Businesses that deal with large databases of sensitive personal data can leverage Nym to provide much better anonymity assurances to their users. Such capabilities can drastically reduce the fallout effects from major data hacks by decoupling the ability of hackers to correlate identity with data. Further, web applications can utilize Nym to avoid insecure login extensions/plugins that plague web pages today and lead to users inadvertently loading malware.

The randomized disconnection of inputs and outputs using the Nym mixnet can also function as a useful tool for identity authentication of users without needing to collect their data, removing the liability concerns of companies whose business models require the collection of personal data for logins.

Nym has vast potential as a new tool for the decentralized and privacy-oriented infrastructure of the Web 3.0. Comprehending the advantages that it can bring to your organization is essential to take into account proactively. With data scandals and massive lawsuits endemic among Internet companies today, Nym provides refreshing privacy assurances for both users and businesses.
