No single point of failure because individual users’ machines don’t rely on a single central server to handle processes: Unlike centralized apps that present a single (or fewer) point(s) of failure, GhostDrive has no centralized server fails, the application network never goes offline and application errors cannot cripple the network.
GhostDrive completely negates the data center security issues that occur with centralized data storage: There are no servers to be hacked, and no stored data about users so photos, videos, texts, or biometrics information cannot be leaked.
Users are not required to reveal real identities to create or interact with DApps. Users’ information are stored on a shared database which no authority has control over. Information can only be decrypted by the user.
Our product is more financially efficient since it can function without a middleman to take profits from transactions. Users can transact directly amongst themselves using cryptocurrency.
Decentralized & Borderless
GhostDrive is decentralized and borderless. On the other hand, centralized apps follow both the laws and regulations of their country as well as their own arbitrarily decided terms and conditions in deciding which content to publish or stop publishing.
We have no central authority exercising censorship. Users cannot be blocked from submitting transactions, deploying DApps, or reading data from the blockchain. So our users are responsible for legal and regulatory implications of the content they share or consume.
Current DApp networks usually can process 10-15 transactions per second. If one DApp uses too much computational resources, the entire network gets congested. GhostDrive operates on multiple blockchains, allowing our customers more flexibility and ease than any other project to date.
Cloud native development and multi-cloud infrastructure has led to increased proliferation and decentralization of secrets.
One can substitute tokens for sensitive data using a REST API to achieve privacy compliance. This helps eliminate the link to sensitive data and protects against data breaches.
Identity access management with single-sign on,
Active Directory integration, and role-based access control, with secure, comprehensive, tamper proof audit logs, provides insight into how secrets are being used, helping users meet compliance requirements.
Offers extensive integration options, integrates with any DevOps environment through Rest APIs. Supports technologies like Kubernetes, Docker etc.
Secrets—typically sensitive credentials or encryption keys–have proved increasingly dangerous in DevSecOps environments, although the challenge is hardly new. Developers have always routinely hard-coded passwords and other types of credentials in scripts and programs. More-enlightened organizations may move the credential to a configuration file or a metadata service–helping somewhat–yet still typically leaving the credential in plain text in a location readily accessible to malicious users.
Every company depends on applications to one degree or another, and these applications process data critical to the business. Encryption capabilities may be embedded in the application or bundled with the underlying file system, storage array, or relational database system.
Application Encryption is selected when fine-grained control is needed, to encrypt select data elements, and to only decrypt information as appropriate for the application—not merely because recognized credentials were provided.
Typical policies cover IT administrators accessing data, users issuing ad hoc queries, retrieval of “too much” information, or examination of restricted data elements such as credit card numbers. So compliance controls typically focus on issues of privileged user entitlements (what users can access), segregation of duties (so admins cannot read sensitive data), and the security of data as it moves between application and database instances. These policies are typically enforced by the applications which process users requests, limiting access (decryption) according to policy. Policies can be as simple as allowing only certain users to see certain types of data.
Homomorphic encryption enables organizations to securely collaborate across organizational or jurisdictional boundaries without introducing new sensitive variables into the organization’s data holdings. This is important because exposure to these indicators could trigger additional reporting requirements or expose competitive advantage. By protecting data while it’s being processed, Homomorphic Encryption allows these organizations to securely leverage external data assets in a decentralized manner without exposing sensitive indicators. The technology also can be configured to allow them to continue respecting the access and verification controls established by the data’s owner.
Organizations looking for new revenue streams are increasingly examining how they might leverage existing data assets; however, the data can only be securely and ethically monetized if the privacy of both the customers of the monetization service and the underlying data itself are respected. Because Homomorphic Encryption uniquely allows data to be processed in a privacy-preserving manner without risk of exposure, it opens the door for such secure monetization. This allows existing sensitive or regulated data assets to be used in ways that may have previously been determined as too risky to pursue.
The blockchain would make record-keeping more reliable by encrypting these personal identification IDs and allowing citizens to access this information. With blockchain technology, individuals can be in control of their digital data and the way in which it is utilized by different parties.
Smart appliances make up the Internet of Things (IoT). By storing the data collected from these devices in blockchain, users can make the data immutable and increase the difficulty of tampering with services by cybercriminals.
Industry organizations like PCI and regulatory bodies have only recently embraced these technical approaches for compliance scope reduction, and more recent variants (including Apple Pay merchant tokens) also improve user data privacy.
Digital wills and signatures are a convenient way to create testaments, but they are at the risk of fraud. Individuals can benefit from blockchain technology to prevent tampering of their wills. Testators can distribute their assets to inheritors via a crypto-will network that can be accessed by related parties. This can be built in the form of a smart contract that can be automatically executed after the death of the testators.
Blockchain offers digitization of assets with IoT sensors so that organizations can label their assets and provide a transparent tracking system. Digitization enables users to identify the location and condition of items. The blockchain can store, manage, protect and transfer all this information.
Secure Payments use case deserves special mention; although commonly viewed as an offshoot of compliance, it is more a backlash–an attempt to avoid compliance requirements altogether. Before data breaches it was routine to copy payment data (account numbers and credit card numbers) anywhere they could possibly be used, but now each copy carries the burden of security and oversight, which costs money. Lots of it. In most cases payment data was not required, but the usage patterns based around it became so entrenched that removal would break applications. For example, merchants do not need to store–or even see–customer credit card numbers for payment, but many of their IT systems were designed around credit card numbers.
Third parties can present the greatest risk of exposure for both data security and associated regulatory compliance. To use and share data with an ecosystem of third parties to accelerate performance, enhance agility and realize cost savings, the ability to effectively share data assets with these third-party collaborators is critical. Homomorphic Encryption allows this collaboration to occur in a secure, decentralized manner while protecting against the risk of data breaches, regulatory penalties, or brand/reputational damage.
More complicated policies build in fraud deterrence, limit how many records specific users are allowed to see, and shut off access entirely in response to suspicious user behavior. In other use cases, where companies move sensitive data to third-party systems they do not control, data masking and tokenization have become popular choices for ensuring sensitive data does not leave the company at all.
Control of the Environment
When implemented properly, cloud encryption can allow users to protect data when they do have full control of the environment.
