MedCo - Collective protection of medical data

Juan Ramon Troncoso-Pastoriza, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

MedCo is the first operational system that makes sensitive medical-data available for research in a simple, privacy-conscious and secure way. It enables a consortium of clinical sites to collectively protect their data and to securely share them with investigators, without single points of failure.

MedCo applies advanced privacy and security techniques, such as:

  • Collective homomorphic encryption;
  • Secure multi-party computation;
  • Distributed Ledger Technologies.
