Hi! I’m new to Ceramic and DID in general. I read the docs and it seems like users can basically create records of their data based on a schema and store them on the Ceramic nodes for the apps to use. It seems like the records can then be publicly retrieved by any apps? The IDX docs says:
By relying on DIDs for identifiers and indexes for user tables, you can greatly reduce the amount of sensitive identity information stored on your servers and instead rely on the trust and security of decentralized protocols.
However, I don’t understand how this greatly reduce the amount of sensitive information and security/privacy because wouldn’t any other apps now be able to easily retrieve from the Ceramic nodes those records the users have created and stored? And better still, just scrape all those records and save them on their own database. Now they just got all the information about everyone, all for free, from every other apps that took info from their user?
I’m sure I’m missing something here that I don’t understand.
