'Crypton is a unique way to build applications, primarily because it makes it simple for developers to store data with a server in such a way that the server doesn’t know what that data is. Additionally, all Crypton-based applications are built solely on the client, and the server acts only as a smart pipe to the database to store and retrieve data for authenticated users. A side effect of this architecture is that w
orking with the framework is not dissimilar to using a ”backend as a service”'
nsh: I believe this is 0bin with a lot of jargon. :P
still, if it can be proven to work, it is arguably beneficial to both hoster and client
(reduction of liability, reduction of trust, respectively)
'There is a problem with doing cryptography in a web browser, where an end user cannot (or will not) verify the entirety of code sent to them upon loading a page - a service operator can therefore inject malicious code into a previously verified page. Because of this, we can only recommend Crypton for use in packaged applications, such as with Cordova or node-webkit. For more information, see our security model.'
so at least they acknowledge the issue
but you can easily envision people using it in browsers anyway
security model remains to be formalised, which is not promising as they clearly formulated enough marketing copy to be reference in several 'journalistic' media
That is useful information actually, thank you. Basics are still wizardry.
nsh: still as far as I can tell, this is just "JS that encrypts data before having a server store it" .... calling it Zero knowledge is a little 0_o
yeah, that definitely raises an eyebrow at best
