About CipherStash

Our goal is to make it easy for dev teams to build apps with the best possible secure data storage.

What drives CipherStash?


A snapshot secure data-store should protect against attacks that leak a snapshot of the entire running system - disk, memory and logs.

Open Source

We believe that open-source software speeds the pace of development and builds trust with our users.


Cryptography shouldn't be a black box - a trustworthy system must withstand rigourous scrutiny.


We're devs building products for devs and we love working with a community that is passionate about data security!

Our mission

We're building the world's first Snapshot Secure fully-searchable data-store. Traditional approaches to storing data trade security for flexibility and even then the security of the data stored just isn't that great. Current databases are largely based on outdated technology and we think there's lots of room for improvement!

Our story

Like so many in the tech industry, CipherStash founder, Dan Draper grew tired of hearing about data-breach after data-breach in the news and developed an interest in searchable encryption technology. After taking Professor Dan Boneh's Stanford Cryptography course, Dan spent the next 3 years researching how to apply searchable encryption techniques to practical databases and search indexes. The result is an entirely new way of storing data that no longer trades security for utility.

Part of something bigger
