Access Management

Set Up your Privacy System

👷Work In Progress

The instruction in this section are only here to give you a glips on how the system identification works with the Privacy Computation Engine.

At this moment, the Privacy Computation Engine uses an internally generated ID.

Meaning, One instance of the Privacy Computation Engine = One (automatically generated) System ID = One coherent DevKit system.

As a consequence, you don't need to configure a System ID yourself.

Check out our introductory tutorial for a concrete and up-to-date overview.

In blindnet devkit, all components are identified to be part of a coherent "System" using a "System ID".

Components of different Systems can only communicate through a restricted set of "interoperable" ways (e.g. data transfers and privacy requests with a specified target). Components belonging to a single coherent System (identified by its unique ID) can communicate way more easily. As a consequence, it is preferable to define one devkit System ID for one logical system which encapsulates and manages the same set of sensitive data.

Managing System IDs

System IDs are simple version 4 UUIDs you can create using any compatible generator, like, for example,

You then just need to add this UUID to the PCE database with the following:

insert into apps values ('7427a303-f776-4df4-aaea-41bc64f48f93');
insert into dac values ('7427a303-f776-4df4-aaea-41bc64f48f93', false);
insert into automatic_responses_config values ('7427a303-f776-4df4-aaea-41bc64f48f93', true, true, true, true);



The current access management dashboard available on is only provided to support our standalone encryption libraries.

A new dashboard allowing you to manage all aspects of blindnet devkit applications and users, including encryption, is under development and on restricted access.

Contact us directly to book a demo and discuss how our new dashboard can fit your specific needs.

The blindnet dashboard is a service and interface engineered to help you accomplish management operations intuitively from a central place.

Futures include (but aren't limited to):

  • managing all users and applications via an intuitive interface
  • easily generate and manage system IDs
  • finely manage access to each component of your system

Following our Open Core model, the blindnet dashboard is delivered as a proprietary paid service.
