  • Publication number: 20190116047
    Abstract: Provided is a process including: receiving, with one or more processors, a first request to store a record from a computing entity; encoding, with one or more processors, the record in a first plurality of segments; arranging, with one or more processors, the first plurality of segments in respective content nodes of a first content graph, wherein at least some content nodes of the first content graph have two or more content edges of the first content graph pointing to two or more respective other content nodes of the first content graph; and storing, with one or more processors, the content nodes of the first content graph in a verification graph.

  • Publication number: 20190075168
    Abstract: Provided is a private and secure network that uses an authentication mechanism with a uniquely assigned private IP address and network credentials issued as part of a VPN certificate exchange. A first layer of authentication establishes a secure tunnel between user and VPN server, and a second layer of authentication connects that secure tunnel to the web site or resource, without passing the VPN certificate. Once authenticated, interaction between website or resource and user are automatically monitored for abnormal or malicious behavior and, if required, automatic verification and authentication response is generated.
