Simple programmatic access control onchain backed by cryptographic proofs
Small para on what is it
Medusa is an encryption oracle that allows dapps to write their own access control rules and rely on Medusa for delegating access to contents. Medusa relies on threshold cryptography to let smart contracts control a private key without anyone knowing it.
Small para on use cases
Medusa allows a smart contract to control a private key and decrypts content for specific readers on demand: Alice can encrypt its latest discovery, and define precisely using its regular toolings the rules for anyone to read it (holder of this NFT, stake X amount etc). At any point in time in the future, Bob can get back an encrypted message that only him can decrypt from Medusa.
Small para on developer friendly
Medusa is a smart contract that anyone can use in the stack of their app. Developers don’t need any extra tooling to start using it.
Small para on technology
The technology Medusa is using is based on threshold cryptography which a fantastic technique to decentralize any cryptographic operations. The secret key is shared between multiple participants and no one knows it. This allows to encrypt a message towards Medusa without no one being able to reveal it. Medusa then re-encrypts this message to a specific recipient dictacted by onchain events. Everything is backed by cryptographic proofs to ensure integrity and privacy of the content.
Small para on status
Medusa aims to expands its use cases, using the same technology, such as timelock encryption (public decryption where everyone can read after a specified time).

This project is at an early stage but we have a demo working already on Goerli ethereum testnet at demo.medusanet.xyz , check it out !
Small para on team:
Medusa is being built by experts in threshold cryptography, inside the cryptonet team at Protocol Labs, building decentralized protocol for the future of web3.
