  • Patent number: 11488258
    Abstract: Computer-readable media, systems and methods may improve security, authorization, and auditability of documents. For example, computer systems for serving documents may be improved to provide secure access and control through challenges that are validated with self-executing on-chain document license contracts that enforce entitlements that specify users and their authorized document actions. Such entitlements may be generated by the user who created the document. As such, a user may retain over authorizations and document actions that are permissible with respect to the document even after the user has transferred a copy of the document. Furthermore, the computer systems may be improved to write an on-chain audit log of document actions, providing an immutable record of the document actions.

  • Patent number: 11468528
    Abstract: According to some embodiments, a system may include an additive manufacturing platform that provides additive manufacturing capability data. A customer platform, associated with a customer, may transmit an industrial asset item request for an industrial asset item. A digital transaction engine may receive the additive manufacturing capability data and the industrial asset item request. The digital transaction engine may then associate the industrial asset item request with an industrial asset definition file, and, based on the additive manufacturing capability data and the industrial asset definition file, assign the industrial asset item request to the additive manufacturing platform. The assignment of the industrial asset item request may be recorded via a secure, distributed transaction ledger. Responsive to the assignment, the additive manufacturing platform may create the industrial asset item (e.g., via an additive manufacturing printer) and provide the item to the customer.
