What is NuCypher?

NuCypher is a decentralized threshold cryptography platform that provides data privacy, access control, and other cryptographic services to decentralized applications and protocols. The network currently supports threshold proxy re-encryption and is extensible to other threshold cryptography primitives like threshold signatures (TSS), distributed key generation (DKG), Shamirโ€™s secret sharing (SSS), and proxy re-signing (PRS).

NuCypher is a layer 2 resource allocation protocol on Ethereum that uses a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) mechanism to coordinate worker nodes.

NU is used for:

  • Staking to run a NuCypher worker node. Proper behavior is ensured via staking, with malicious nodes subject to slashing penalties.
  • Participating in the NuCypher DAO, which controls network parameters and smart contract upgrades. Users that are staking NU can validate DAO proposals.

NuCypherโ€™s cryptographic libraries can be found onย the projectโ€™s GitHubย and include:

  • pyUmbral, the reference implementation of the Umbral threshold proxy re-encryption scheme
  • NuBLS, a threshold BLS signature library
  • rust-umbral, a Rust implementation of Umbral with bindings to JavaScript and Python
