QEDIT’s Privacy-Enhancing Technology To Be Leveraged in Deloitte Blockchain Platform

Tel Aviv, Israel – October 29, 2019 QEDIT, a Privacy-Enhancing Technology provider based on zero-knowledge proof cryptography, has announced that its privacy solution has been integrated in Deloitte’s ‘Eduscrypt’ platform. The Eduscrypt solution uses blockchain technology to enable organisations to track, share, and validate qualifications of staff. 

The announcement was made at the ZKProof Community Event in Amsterdam today, 29 October 2019.

Eduscrypt can be used to monitor professional qualifications, issue authentic and traceable certificates, manage personal education records, ensure regulatory compliance, and is customisable for different industry and organisational needs. Using blockchain technology, Eduscrypt enables organisations to trust in the authenticity of qualifications, reduce data errors, and provides a permissioned repository for qualifications to be shared within and across organisations.

Jonathan Rouach, CEO and Co-founder of QEDIT, said, “The integration of QEDIT’s privacy solution into Deloitte’s Eduscrypt platform is yet another tangible use-case, demonstrating the far-reaching potential of zero-knowledge proof cryptography to transform processes across a myriad of industries. Working alongside a global giant like Deloitte marks another milestone moment for us as we move to accelerate enterprise adoption of blockchain technology.”

QEDIT’s protocol utilizes zero-knowledge proof cryptography to allow parties employing enterprise blockchains to record and authenticate the transfer of assets on a shared ledger without revealing any underlying, confidential information. Network members can verify the integrity of the proofs, but they cannot see who sent what, or how much, to whom. QEDIT also offers tools for auditors to enable regulatory compliance.

Antonio Senatore, Chief Technology Officer of Deloitte’s EMEA Blockchain Lab, said, “Academics and enterprises both stand to benefit hugely from leveraging blockchain technology — for most organisations validating, managing and recording the education qualifications of staff and prospective hires can be a very onerous and costly process, with regulatory fines for non-compliance. Integrating QEDIT’s Zero-Knowledge Proof privacy solution ensures that organisations can trust in the authenticity of qualifications, while preserving the full privacy of the underlying data, and upholding regulatory compliance.”
