  • Patent number: 9374422
    Abstract: A method of securely distributing and storing content may include receiving user content and identifying a number of storage servers that are configured to receive portions of the user content. The method may also include dissecting the user content into content portions for storage in the storage servers. The number of content portions may be selected to be equal to the identified number of storage servers, and the user content may be dissected into the content portions using a randomized dissection pattern. The method may additionally include transmitting each of the plurality of content portions to separate storage servers. Each of the storage servers may be independent from the transmitting computer system and from each other. Each of the storage servers may be operated according to a common protocol, such that each of the storage servers can store any of the content portions.

  • Patent number: 9167038
    Abstract: Method, systems, and computer-readable mediums for securing uploaded content are presented. User content can be uploaded from a user device to a computer system, where the user content is dissected into a number of content portions. After dissection, the computer system can transmit each of the content portions to a corresponding storage server. The storage servers may be independent from each other, independent from the user device, and independent from the computer system itself. Any portion of the user content can then be removed from the computer system, such that the computer system does not own or store the user content, and such that that no single entity in the system can compromise the user content. In some cases, the storage servers can be operated by non-profit entities that are not privately owned.

  • Publication number: 20030093380
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods and systems by which data is encrypted securely, stored within a host server, and retrieved upon request from a client system. In one embodiment, a first user, such as an architect, enters information including manufacturer model part numbers. A request is then sent to the host server to encode the manufacturer's model part numbers. The host server encodes and saves the encoded model part numbers in a project information database. A second user, such as a manufacturer, retrieves the project information by entering the encoded model part numbers and requesting the host server to decode the encoded part numbers. The host server then maps the encoded part numbers to the manufacturer part numbers and transmits the project information to the manufacturer.
