Documents or records stored on RecordKeeper are very safe due to Blockchain & Asymmetric Key Cryptography (aka Public-Key Cryptography). This pair (Blockchain & Asymmetric Key Cryptography) help us achieving the 4 major aspects of security with high confidence in lesser cost. While in traditional technology you have to invest a lot to achieve these below 4 aspects of security.:

Also, all 4 major aspects of security can be achieved in RecordsKeeper’s Blockchain

  • Confidentiality.
  • Integrity.
  • Availability.
  • Non-repudiation.

Blockchain: Since Blockchain is a decentralized ledger & store everything immutably, it is highly secured. In short, it means it is very very difficult as well as expensive to forge or modify a transaction and it is extremely easy to detect the inconsistency & forged data/transaction/stored information. So nobody can modify or forge the data stored in Blockchain. Hence Integrity, Availability & Non-repudiation can be achieved with Blockchain easily. But What if someone read my documents? The answer to this question is in Cryptography.

Asymmetric Key Cryptography: It is a method of locking digital documents using two different Keys. Everything you store in Blockchain is locked with your one key (Public-Key) hence It can only be unlocked using your another key which will be in your mind. Until unless you share your passphrase with the hacker, computationally it is impossible to hack/guess the keys & unlock your stored files.

This above set of technology makes your documents unchangeable, incorruptible, undeletable, and unreadable for anyone except you. Isn’t it cool?  🙂
