| Google recently deployed a system for performing SQL-like queries over an encrypted database following (and giving credit to) the CryptDB design. Their service uses the encryption building blocks from CryptDB (RND, DET, HOM, and SEARCH), rewrites queries and annotates
the schema as in CryptDB. Here is Google's source code release of the Encrypted BigQuery client; Google will make an official announcement soon.
|Lincoln Labs added the CryptDB design on top of their D4M Accumulo no-SQL engine (using the RND, DET, OPE and HOM building blocks).|
sql.mit.edu is a SQL server at MIT hosting many MIT-ran applications. Volunteering users of Wordpress switched to running Wordpress through CryptDB, using our source code.
Other companies using CryptDB's design
|SAP AG and a new startup are applying CryptDB's design to their setting.|
