Proving Authenticity in a Digital World: Building a Market for Authentication Technology

Entrepreneurial Roundtable

November 19, 2007: 6:30 PM - 8:45 PM

In the digital world, determining what is the “original” version of an electronic business record is a real challenge. That is because it is easy to change and manipulate digital images, with little or no trace. Paul Doyle is one of the leading experts on data integrity and authentication in the country. Through ProofSpace, Paul developed the leading technology addressing these issues. Now, the challenge is to generate sales.

Event Details

Come, hear, how a virtual start-up is able to market to and through Fortune 100 companies, federal agencies and top professional firms. ProofSpace builds data authentication solutions that thwart fraud, verify key events and inspections, and repudiate false legal claims. The company’s patented ProofMark™ Transient Key technology tags electronic business records with a self-validating cryptographic seal that acts as a “tamper indicator” based on a true and provable time-reference datum, impossible to manipulate -- even by trusted insiders. A valid ProofMark irrefutably proves that the content of a record has not changed since the ProofMark was applied, no matter where the data resides or who controls it. Industry analysts have been bullish on ProofSpace’s prospects ever since its patented technology was included in the American National Standard X9.95- 2005 (“Trusted Time Stamp Management and Security”) published by ANSI, the accredited standards body for the financial services industry.
