  • Patent number: 11374741
    Abstract: A system comprises one or more storage entities (SEs) each configured to store data for applications that rely on higher levels of data integrity, wherein each of the SEs has its own cryptographic identity in the form of a unique root identity key pair of public and private keys created at manufacturing time. Each SE generates one or more SE-specific asymmetric data owner keys upon invocation of a smart contract by a prospective data owner. The system further comprises a distributed ledger provisioned to the SEs and configured to maintain all public keys and/or public key certificates of the SEs. The system also comprises a key manager configured to hold all SE-specific data owner public keys and SE data access control keys, wherein the data stored on the SEs is protected by the SE-specific data access control keys wrapped by the SE-specific data owner keys based on current data ownership.

  • Patent number: 11296894
    Abstract: A method includes generating a private key associated with a distributed ledger. The private key is stored on a secure memory. A storage device is manufactured and includes an onboard computing device having the secure memory integrated therein. The onboard computing device is configured to sign one or more ledger operations with the private key.

  • Patent number: 10963188
    Abstract: A digital sensor stream is received from a sensor. A domain transform is performed on the digital sensor stream to produce first and second substreams. The first substream is larger than the second substream. The first substream is stored in cold storage and the second substream is stored in a second storage that has faster access times than the cold storage. Deep machine learning is performed on the second substream, the results of which may be stored in the second storage.
