Privacy coins are cryptocurrencies that specialize in keeping you and your transactions hidden.
Although the media portrays crypto as an anonymous, dark web currency, it’s actually quite transparent. Most blockchain networks broadcast every transaction and wallet balances publicly, so tracing someone’s financial activity isn’t all that difficult.
Privacy coins focus on keeping transactions anonymous and untraceable. Anonymity disassociates your identity from your wallet and specific transactions while untraceability prevents outside parties from piecing together your blockchain activity. They do this in a process called chain analysis.

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) will host a Proposers’ Day Conference for the HECTOR program on July 14, 2017, in anticipation of the release of a new solicitation. The Conference will be held from 9 AM to 4 PM EST in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The purpose of the conference will be to provide information on the HECTOR program, and on the research problems the program aims to address, to address questions from potential proposers, and to provide a forum for potential proposers to present their capabilities for teaming opportunities.
This announcement serves as a pre-solicitation notice and is issued solely for information and planning purposes. The Proposers’ Day Conference does not constitute a formal solicitation for proposals or proposal abstracts. Conference attendance is voluntary and is not required to propose to future solicitations (if any) associated with this program.
The Intelligence Community (IC) must balance the needs of policy compliance with providing access to data as needed to protect national security. The IC is also expected to maintain privacy of individuals while being as transparent as reasonably possible in its operations. Increasingly, IC organizations must collaborate with citizen groups, with other Government organizations that operate under different regulatory constraints, and with other nations. While solutions exist to protect data at rest and in transit, there is no protection for data being processed, which hinders opportunities for collaboration between different agencies, including mutually distrusting parties.
For existing approaches to data processing, compliance and access are competing requirements. Advanced cryptographic techniques have the potential to bridge this gap by protecting data in process, and limiting access to the results according to policy controls. This raises the possibility of developing distributed applications to allow different – even mutually distrusting – parties to collaborate securely on a shared computation for a result that all can trust. Currently, many of these cryptographic techniques are inefficient and also require significant cryptographic expertise to use them effectively. (SEE ATTACHED FOR COMPLETE DESCRIPTION AND DETAILS)
