The terrapin project provides the primary data owners the ability to let third parties access their data safely. Primary owners can revoke access at any time, removing the ability for a third party to access the data. During this time, the data itself is store at the third party, encrypted via terrapin.

Under the covers, terrapin is a collections of independent projects and micro-services that can serve other purposes beyond the primary purpose of the terrapin project. These subprojects as well as the primary project are all licensed under the permissive Apache 2 license scheme.

As of right now, the software exists in a mono-repository to ease the development process. Changes to the subprojects must not break the other projects that rely on them. Using a mono-repository forces execution of all the tests to ensure compatibility.
