Building a better ORAM with Oblix and Snoopy

Rather than tread this path towards ever-increasing program complexity as we try to hand-craft obfuscation into our memory access patterns through linear scanning, we’ve built a layer of abstraction around RAM access that utilizes higher-performing oblivious RAM (ORAM) techniques. We are inspired by the systems discussed in current academic literature, such as Path ORAM, Oblix, and Snoopy and grateful to the researchers who developed and shared them...

Sky Project in the News: Piranha

All you have to do is bring your cryptographic protocols to Piranha and then program on top of it. That’s why we say it’s really a platform. In this study, we implemented three protocols on top of Piranha to show that it works, but you could implement any protocols you wanted on top of it and still get the same acceleration benefits...
