PROJECT BRIEF DESCRIPTION

Consento defines a new era for data privacy. The Cloud can not be fully trusted to keep personal and other highly confidential data! Consento is developing a decentralised digital vault technology to help small businesses manage confidential data with their customers, using p2p encrypted storage & authenticating by consent given by trustworthy humans, not computers. Consento is a democratic and human-centric solution that overcomes the trust issue of distant p2p networks, by requiring human-to-human interaction. In detail, Consento builds on DAT technology to keep data quickly & securely replicated encrypted, and adds a layer of Shamir’s Secret encryption to provide a peer-to-peer identity check feature. Because its process remains open, Consento is the vehicle for local institutes to effectively support humans of the digital 21st century. The ability to become “digital trustee” will give new relevance to local lawyers, personal accountants and health professionals as a start.

BUSINESS MARKET

  1. SMEs, and small scale business professionals such as lawyers, doctors, journalists, etc., looking for a secure solution to store confidential data and share with their customers/patients.
  2. Law or Notary related professionals looking to offer their trustworthiness (and/or their ISO certified infrastructure) to the general public, SMEs, professionals.
  3. Governmental institutions, NGOs that want to give their citizen ownership over their personal official papers

BUSINESS MODEL

Consento is a B2B2C model. Its service is free for end users. Revenue comes from businesses who want to extend their customer base by offering new privacy compliant services. Local, security-sensitive professions such as lawyers, doctors and accountants, will be able to be listed as certified ‘professional digital trustees’ in the Consento trustee directory. For large public or private organizations we will offer integration of Consento technology into their existing services and platforms.

STRATEGY AND SCALABILITY

Digital data privacy is a ubiquitous topic. For industries to take part in the digital transformation data security is crucial, but requires significant costs and effort to comply with digital regulations, not to mention risks and responsibilities that come with the use of external services. Too often trust in anonymous cloud services have proven wrong. Consento’s strategy is humanity in digital privacy, using real-world networks and relations. Security greatly depends on how technology is used in practice. Consento intends to certify small businesses and consultancies into ‘digital trustees’ to jointly provide a “more human” solution of digital trust. Because of its decentralised nature, scalability is not a technical issue for Consento. Our solution offers privacy by design and enables to easily turn any device into an encrypted data vault and a potential human-to-human authentication interface. In fact as more users participate as more useful it becomes.
