Privacy - admin keys, backdoors, assocoation sets

Every privacy initiative in production seems to compromise to the point of being faux privacy. Aztec, Secret, and others have ability to expose private data. Tornado Cash fork via Ethereum OGs has association sets which undermine fungibility and reduce actual privacy. Is Zama agnostic on this front - leaving it to applications or is it actually impossible to be “evil” as per Mr.Hindi’s observations here…: “FHE is such a powerful technique that neither the company operating the service, hackers or government could retrieve the data” . Asking for a friend :wink:


Zama doesn’t operate anything, we simply provide the solutions. Everything we do is 100% open source, so you can check for yourself that there is no backdoor!

So I guess it depends on the companies running the services, not us directly!
