Light Shield: An open-source layer 2 zkLayer enabling private program execution, purpose-built for Solana. Light Protocol allows the on-chain state to be encrypted. Only the user can decrypt their private state; hence they essentially “own” it. The private state can be owned by a single user or a set of users sharing a decryption key. For example, consider an NFT listing on Solana; its public state (e.g., price) is visible to all, including the fact that it’s up for sale. But offers and trades should remain private.
