New updates and improvements to Evervault

New region, new guides, and CI pipeline deployment

This week we are introducing new guides (and improving the old ones) in our Dashboard, so it’s easier to get started with Relay and Cages. Some of the new guides include:

  • How Relay works
  • Running Relay with your local server
  • Using outbound interception with our SDKs
  • How to run and deploy your Cage

On the product side, the changes made include:

In addition, we have reduced the bundle size of our dashboard from 2.63 MB to 1.95 MB (25% smaller), so it should be a lot faster to load! We will continue to improve this further.

As always, lots of small bugs were fixed and performance improvements across the board.

Relay and Cages 1.0

Relay and Cages are live. Both are built on the Evervault Encryption Engine (E3).

E3 is a what all Evervault products and services will be built on, and is where all cryptographic operations will happen. E3 is built on AWS Nitro Enclaves — fully isolated, hardened, and highly constrained virtual machines that have no persistent storage, no interactive access, and no external networking.

Relay makes it easy for developers to automatically encrypt sensitive data at the field-level before it enters their app, and decrypt it as it leaves.

Cages are isolated serverless functions hosted on Evervault for processing the data encrypted with Relay.
