Introduction

Welcome to blindnet devkit's documentation 👋

Quick start

To learn all concepts step-by-step by doing, we strongly encourage you to start with our Quick Start tutorial.

The blindnet devkit is here to help you build trustworthy applications, with privacy embedded in its design and architecture.

With this purpose in mind, it is mostly defined (and yet not limited to) two very important central concepts:

  1. Data Capture: a specific set of sensitive data captured in a meaningful way1
  2. Privacy Request: a request from a person who shared sensitive data with you, to assert their right to privacy2

Several independent components are here to cover these two workflows and more. You can use these components separately. Yet, they work wonders together, supporting:

  • easy to integrate privacy management
    • white-label Web Components for all privacy settings
    • helper libraries for easy capture of sensitive data with associated user consent
  • advanced sensitive data management
    • secured data storage and automated management
    • end-to-end encryption
    • secured transfer of sensitive data and associated user consent to compatible systems

Our Quick Start tutorial is here to give you a simple entry point to familiarize yourself with these components and understand how they play together.

The following sections of the documentation cover every detail, grouped by area:

  • Computation, with the core Privacy Computation Engine, interpreting rights to hold and treat sensitive data and calculating responses to Privacy Requests
  • User Interfaces to embed in any web page or application, easing daily operations and building trust with your users
  • Access Management tools to manage your applications and users
  • Storage solutions to connect new or existing storage systems to the devkit, for automation, and more
  • Data Capture solutions to ease the process of capturing, storing and managing sensitive data and associated consents in a meaningful way
  • Encryption to protect your users privacy from end to end
