Vanish is a research system designed to give users control over the lifetime of personal data stored on the web or in the cloud. Specifically, all copies of Vanish encrypted data--even archived or cached copies--will become permanently unreadable at a specific time, without any action on the part of the user or any third party or centralized service.
