JLINC enables decentralized data exchange and data provenance at Internet scale
JLINC uses some of the same tech puzzle pieces that made blockchain possible in a totally new way.
Cryptographic keys and hashes are used to sign human-readable legally defined contracts exchanged between cloud agents representing each party.
Then audit proof can be written to any combination of immutable logs, ledgers or blockchains.
In an agent-based co-managed data model, each individual can manage their own data with all the organizations that they choose to under an automated system. Data exchange is governed by a standard framework agreement that companies can't unilaterally change.
From a technical perspective, this model is based on a "cloud agent" paradigm. Individual users each have an agent that operates as their representative in co-managed data relationships. Each organization also has an agent operating either as a cloud service or on their own server. Then, when an individual chooses to share data with an organization, they can do it in one click using a profile, and they can do it in a way that is digitally signed, auditable, verifiable and secure.
The system is genuinely decentralized and interoperable without requiring any blockchain or token. It's a new internet paradigm that actually serves all parties' interests.
Significant business risk arises from not having a clear view of data, what came in, from where, for what purpose, and on what terms, and most importantly, where did it then go from here. JLINC enables the automated logging of data lineage and provenance with permissions, which allows data risk to be actively managed.
Compliance with many of today's regulations require an audit trail that shows exactly how that data has been derived. JLINC automates this process by logging every data transaction, categorizing it and making that validation available for all relevant parties to inspect should they want or need to do so.
Customers need transparency and control of their data to move beyond the technically and legally opaque models for data sharing most widely in use today. JLINC gives all parties both transparency and control before and after they share their data, thus providing a platform for truly trustworthy data exchange.
As the Information Age continues to grow in size at an astronomical rate, the need for automated systems capable of managing the provenance of data becomes paramount. Further, such systems need to be flexible and well-designed to meet the needs of organizations now and in the future as things will inevitably evolve.
JLINC provides signed data exchange between separate clouds on the internet. Automated contracts control how data can be used – after it is shared.
JLINC is the first complete programmatic DPAAS platform designed to manage the chain of custody of any data element. Its unique design works for organizations that need a cloud, on premise or hybrid design to manage the provenance of data both now and in the future.
A term borrowed from the chain-of-custody for art –– proves where data came from, where it was reposted, and by whom.
Each individual can set their own data sharing permissions and preferences and assign them as their one-click default.
Voluntarily shared and maintained data is far more accurate, at lower cost, and forms the basis of trust-based marketing relationships.
Self-validating human readable contracts automate complex data exchange between enterprises under existing legal agreements.
Individual control over the data gathered by their devices can be a crucial differentiator for adoption once people have a choice.
People in the EU, and all global corporations that do business there, need a functional way to manage personal data under GDPR.
A signed automated data exchange layer provides data integrity and validation across systems with or without any blockchain.
Permissioned data provides the high quality automated information flows required for machine learning to be effective.
The $3.1T cost of inaccurate data in the US alone actually represents twelve times the value of global digital advertising.
