IBM research and development team on January 2015 launched an application which can prevent other application on the system to access over users current personal information now it has been granted permission for other developers to develop more on this application for security purposes.
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he IBM Technological Multinational Company in January 2015 launch new technology dubbed as ‘Identity Mixer’ this is the technology inside the tool that prevent other application to get personal information from the users database, on Friday the company IBM have relaunched its another version for its developer as open source available on its Blue Cloud Platform.
This Identity Mixer basically protects its users not to leak any personal data during system authentication process which is also called as contain ‘Zero Information Proof’. This is eventually for the safety for the users, usually at the time of app instal or granting any permission to access personal information from the users, many application also requires some of the unnecessary requirement which are eventually required for the app but still they need to know users personal info, whereas the IBM technology prevents that application who tried to gain access to users basic info also.
Identity Mixer Prevents Other Apps to Access Your Personal Info
Other application who required such unnecessary from the users, such as example: “Any application provide online video streaming service and at the time of logins or viewing any video users need to verify their age restrictions process, by typing names of last and first, what is your age, what is your Address and date of birth, etc, all this unnecessary using users info are not even required”.
How does Identity Mixer work?
Firstly thanks to the IBM developers who works to set up algorithms on cryptography from which it helps the developers to develop a code of the app deep end for authenticating users identity only concentrating to using essential proofs of the users which is a ‘Zero-Knowledge Proof’ and corresponding collects no unnecessary identity of the users.
In this way, in the gushing administration illustration, clients would have both character and membership certifications put away in an individual Credential Wallet. The outcome, as per IBM, is that clients’ protection is better safeguarded, and the administration supplier is saved the need to ensure and secure every one of that incidental information. To get to a motion picture, they could utilize that electronic wallet to demonstrate that they’re qualified for watch the chose content without exposing some other subtle elements.

Paul Stephens, chief of arrangement and support at the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse said, “Anything that should be possible to lessen the measure of information that is gathered as a feature of the verification procedure is certainly something worth being thankful for.” likewise said: “One of the key standards for ensuring protection is the idea of information minimization,”
