We have the world's only complete logical vision for the solution of the entire cybersecurity problem, and we have the patents, software, demos, videos, documentation, and time invested to back that vision up. These are the patents.

 

Patents and intellectual property

Certitude Digital is the holder of a remarkable collection of current original intellectual property in the form of issued and pending patents, as well as trade secrets, copyrights, and trademarks. These include some of the most powerful and wide-ranging innoivations today in the field of cybersecurity, and include several that completely upend their subject areas (AMULET™ patents completely transform the arena of digital asset security, 'Nomes™ intellectual property flips identity authentication and verification as you know it on its head, Code Cocoon™s provide lockdown isolation, and Quantum™ allows realtime device environments and identity personas to be in a million places at the same time instantly - yes, exactly like quantum entanglement in physics), as well as those that represent significant improvements in encryption and database security. This list grows constantly as each new innovation lifts the curtain on other new things we can do.

Issued and pending patents

Alternately, intellectual property professionals can access the United States Patent Office's PAIR website to obtain the latest information on the status of our patents and applications. 

These are the six issued and three published pending patent applications in hand as of this writing:

·    Issued United States Patent #8,457,347 B2 granted June 4, 2013 - this patent protects techniques for monitoring usage of a computer by recognizing text on a computer display screen, primarily used in AMULET™ advanced criteria to management digital asset access based on end-user activity, emotional state or recorded history.

 

·    Issued United States Patent #8,494,288 B2 granted July 23, 2013 - this patent protects lossless digital compression and comparison advances used throughout both AMULET™ and 'Nomes™ technology suites.

 

·    Issued United States Patent #8,675,910 B2 granted March 18, 2014 - this patent protects additional techniques for monitoring usage of a computer by recognizing text on a computer display screen, primarily used in AMULET™ advanced criteria to management digital asset access based on end-user activity, emotional state or recorded history.

 

·    Issued United States Patent #8,761,511 B2 granted June 24, 2014 - this patent protects techniques for upscaling screen-resolution images to permit optical character recognition, primarily used in AMULET™ advanced criteria to management digital asset access based on end-user activity, emotional state or recorded history.

·    Issued United States Patent #9,996,680 B2, was granted on June 12, 2018 - this is the primary patent for the core AMULET™ technologies. 

 

·    [Issued notification received 3/25/2020] Utility patent application #15/978,040 filed May 11, 2018 - this application extends issued patent #US 9,996,680 B2 to include proxy support for less-capable devices or as an alternative to on-device processing for online smart devices. This patent application supports AMULET Guardian Gateway services.

 

·    Utility patent application #16/004,867 filed June 11, 2018 - this application extends issued patent #US 9,996,680 B2 to add and refine a variety of improvements, including but not limited to financial services support for immediate in-situ payment and playback/rendering/control of multimedia and other digital assets.

 

·    [Published 4/1/2020] Utility patent application #16142167 filed September 26, 2018 - this is the primary patent application for the base 'Nomes™ technology.

 

·    Provisional patent application #62/881,641 filed August 1, 2019 - this application covers new Kerckhoffs' complement innovations in the enciphering techniques that are employed by AMULET™s and 'Nomes technologies, but which are independent of either technology.  

 

Unpublished and as-yet-unfiled patent applications, including trade secrets

Certitude Digital also has in-house a library (at last count, more than 36) of documented original innovations suitable for formal patents which are either unpublished patent applications or are waiting to be filed (unfotunately, we are in dire need of funding before we can push forward with these).

We would be happy to send a copy of that inventory under a non-disclosure agreement to any serious potential investor or stategic partner willing and able to fund the patent work. with shared assignments of the finished product in return (or other collateral or arrangement as appropriate).

Because these items of intellectual property not yet protected, we are under the severe restrictions of the USPTO's rules of engagement as to what we can publicly disclose about them. But in the most general of terms, we can say that a couple of these will completely transform the digital enviironment as you know it today.

We'll give you just one example to think about. Imagine if you and/or your device could be in a million places at once instantly in realtime and have security questions regarding things of interest to you asked by remote software on far-away devices you never heard of, and answered in the context of your own environment and identity persona as it exists at the exact moment the security question is asked, all under the unbreakable prtotection of AMULET technologies. Welcome to our AMULET Quantum™ world... but that's just the beginning. Suppose you could have the security question asked by an AMULET™ and answered in the current device and identity persona context of any AMULET™ subscriber who agreed and the content provider selected, all instantly in real time?  Take it one step further (w have!), and now the content provider (of, say, a Social Security) can have an AMULET-protected versions of his or her content stored in the cell of any database in the world and may visible to a query only if the AMULET's criteria are satisfied by the content providers' choice of user environemnts and identoty personas. This capabilty alone solves a massive logistical problem faced by every database and file-server in the world trying honestly to provide security to the owners of its third-party stored data. The headache and threat of sensitive personal data stored in databases vanishes overnight for the owners of that data as well as service providers and database, file server, server farm, and cloud owners who have a fiduciary responsibilty for the security of that data.
