The WellFort project aims to research the basic mechanisms to
(a) provide secure storage for users’ sensitive data,
(b) deliver a trusted analysis environment for executing data analytics processes in a controlled privacy-preserving environment,
(c) combine data from different companies for analysis while respecting user privacy and consent given.
Based on the project results, it will be possible to operate a trusted platform where companies can securely execute data analysis algorithms. A novelty of this approach is that companies do not get direct access to data, but only in aggregated or anonymized form.
In addition, they can benefit from a large group of individuals that are potentially willing to share their data for research. Users, on the other hand, benefit from a privacy and security respecting platform for their data and can contribute to research projects in a secure manner.
