 Protecting Privacy with Translucent Databases

O'Reilly talks about how to protect privacy with Translucent Databases.

"A translucent database uses cryptographic methods like hash functions and public key cryptography to mathematically protect information so that it cannot be wrongly divulged -- not even to a crooked database administrator. Translucent databases provide for unparalleled protection of sensitive information, be that information personal, corporate, or academic."
