Is a search engine like Google possible on the Safe network?

Will there be a search engine on Safe?

Can an app trawl content on pages if it is encrypted?

This has been discussed elsewhere, e.g.

Bottom line is it’s possible but will need a new approach. Only public data (ie where the encryption keys are made available) will be searchable. Private data will not be.


I reeeeelly want to know who is going to tackle this one. They could get huge revenue from this. From a first lovers advantage perspective this would be the most used app on the network.

Is SAFE-FS supposed to do something like this? I assumed SAFE-FS was a way of storing info publicly for all to search. Not quite a search engine but very useful nonetheless.

I think @whiteoutmashups is tackling this?
