The OpenTDF project is an open source reference implementation of the Trusted Data Format (TDF) specification that enables developers to protect data flowing in and out of their applications. The TDF specification is currently hosted by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). You can read the TDF specification here.
By combining access policy and strong encryption, TDF enables data owners to maintain granular control over their data wherever it travels.
Ideas for leveraging OpenTDF in your own applications
SecureCycle is a sample application that demonstrates how OpenTDF safeguards private health information — in this case, sensitive data related to period tracking and symptoms.
At Virtru, we believe that privacy is a human right, and that everyone should have ownership and autonomy over how their data is used. OpenTDF represents a major step to making security and privacy central to applications and devices they’re being built — not an afterthought.
