Aleo is the first platform to offer fully private applications.
Aleo defines a new standard for the web. It takes a radically new approach to security, privacy, and data ownership.
For users, Aleo introduces new experiences that are both truly personal and truly private. Users no longer need to sacrifice information they can never take back, and web services no longer have to risk compromising their users’ data.
And for developers, Aleo introduces a programming model that integrates with existing web applications.
Data privacy problems
Data privacy centers around voluntary sharing of information. Keeping data private means keeping it isolated within the person-service relationship, and not having it be used in ways that are surprising.
But today, there is no such thing as private web data. If it lives online, somebody owns it. The web provides free services in exchange for personal data.
There are lot of data privacy issues such as: advertisers track your movement across the internet, your search history isn’t private, apps constantly track your location, websites store your information for indefinite amounts of time.
In result need to build a user experience on the web that is both truly personal and truly private.Private data should be just that — private.
Such chalenges can be managed by Aleo.
Welcome to ALEO
Main goal of Aleo is to create a decentralized, open-source network that will offer robust support for building, deploying, and running private applications on the web.
Aleo achieves all of this by leveraging decentralized systems and zero-knowledge cryptography to protect user data on the web. Offers users and application developers unbounded compute with absolute privacy. And for developers, Aleo introduces a programming model that integrates with existing web applications.
They believe that the open, decentralized nature of this foundation will provide a far stronger incentive to participate. And just like Bitcoin’s economic model was critical to it’s success, a stable token economy with predictable prices provides the perfect underpinning to enable the next generation of computing based on zero-knowledge cryptography.
Zero-knowledge cryptography presents a foundation for the web that is secure, compliant, and fair. New web standards built upon this technology offer users choice and will mitigate the impact of data breaches.
- First, zero-knowledge makes web services secure.
- Second, zero-knowledge makes web services compliant.
- Third, zero-knowledge makes web services fair.
Aleo is built for the web.
For developers, Aleo Studio is designed to simplify the development cycle. Under the hood, Aleo Studio connects you to the network, making it easy to quickly test and publish transactions on the web.
They are developing a programming language called Leo. Leo looks and feels just like a traditional programming language. Yet under the hood, Leo is far more complex. Leo abstracts low-level cryptographic concepts and makes it easy to integrate private applications into your stack.
To jumpstart the development cycle, they are building Aleo Studio, the first IDE for writing zero-knowledge applications.
And to make it simple to bundle and share your work, they have built a package manager for Leo. Aleo Package Manager is the first package manager for zero-knowledge circuits. It includes collaborative features like teams and organizations to make it easy to work with friends and colleagues on private applications. In addition, Aleo Package Manager is integrated with Aleo Studio, making it easy to import and publish new packages without having to leave the editor.
They want to make Leo a new standard for writing private applications on the web, and believe that by providing the best toolkit and infrastructure for it, that application developers will help us integrate the technology and make private applications a part of every users’ web experience. Because, private data should be just that — private.
