The OpenTDF project will enable developers to incorporate Zero Trust Data Control into their applications
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 6, 2022 — Virtru, a global leader in data protection, today launched the OpenTDF project, an open source initiative. Developers can leverage OpenTDF to encrypt and protect sensitive data flowing in and out of their applications while applying data policies to enable Zero Trust data control.
Originally invented within the National Security Agency by Virtru’s founder, Will Ackerly, TDF has long existed as an open specification hosted by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Over the years, the TDF specification has informed numerous efforts to facilitate sharing of sensitive data across disparate domains. With the launch today of OpenTDF, developers have access to software development kits (SDKs) hosted in the OpenTDF GitHub repo. These SDKs will make it easier to build applications uniquely capable of governing sensitive data as it flows through documents, video feeds, IoT sensors, and multi-party analytics.
Use cases for OpenTDF include:
