In a world traumatized by the COVID-19 pandemic, the protection of personal information is becoming a real issue for society.
Initially conceived to reallocate data to its owners, the Oasis Labs protocol continues to be emulated by professionals who believe that privacy is not a commodity like any other.
This promotional article is offered in collaboration with Oasis Labs.
A disruptive and efficient technology
The feat implemented by Oasis Labs is called “Paratimes”. This technology proposes to manage the interaction between users and service providers, while freeing the main network from a large number of tasks. A myriad of private enclaves in which information is completely under the control of the owners of that data, namely you and me. There is no way for anyone to exploit our information without asking for permission and possibly including a financial consideration.
For Oasis Labs, each individual should remain in control of their private data.
In order to promote the adoption of the concept in as many fields as possible, Oasis Labs has launched the “Parcel SDK” platform. A “Software Development Kit” that allows developers to integrate Oasis Labs technology into their programs or applications:
- Securely store sensitive userdata
- Define and enforce usage policies on this personal information
- Share tamper-proof logs of access history with their users
- Easily deploy an isolated computing environment for privacy-preserving data analysis.

For example, <a href=”https://journalducoin.com/actualites/donnees-hypersensibles-retour-sur-le-partenariat-entre-nebula-genomics-et-oasis-labs/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>NebuGenomics was one of the very first partners, convinced of the need for true confidentiality in its DNA tests. Today, it is the turn of Ruyi Health to use the tool in order to offer a preventive, efficient and secure health management application.
Initially intended for patients in remission from cardiovascular accidents, the protocol has proven to be extremely useful for the management of key health factors as well as for the interaction with the professionals concerned. The team has therefore decided to expand its scope to offer a true partner in daily health care for the monitoring of many serious diseases.
But with the recent revelations of large-scale medical data breaches, patients are increasingly concerned about the security of their personal information, hesitating to enter sensitive data into certain applications that they deem untrustworthy.
In addition, they want to have control over who their information is shared with. Thanks to Oasis Labs, Ruyi Health ‘s app collects personal health data, helps with daily disease management, generates health reports and allows these reports to be shared with selected people (doctors, therapists, family members, etc…) in complete confidentiality. Guarantees that could perhaps reconcile the French with certain health constraints experienced lately as real infringements on their privacy.
No, blockchain technology is not just about transcending finance. In a connected world, personal data has become a gold mine for those who know how to exploit it skilfully. The balance of power between digital giants and private individuals is, however, the major issue, which Oasis Labs is tackling brilliantly.
