Independent Expert Opinion on Digiprove:

Georgia Tech
Georgia Tech (The Georgia Institute of Technology) is a U.S. and international leader in scientific and technological research and education. Overall research expenditures were $525 million in 2008. Year after year, Georgia Tech is consistently the only technological university ranked in U.S. News & World Report's listing of America's top ten public universities.
Its applied research unit - Georgia Tech Research Institute - is a highly-regarded applied research and development organization. Each day, GTRI's science and engineering expertise is used to solve some of the toughest problems facing government and industry in the U.S. and around the globe.

GTRI employs over 1,500 people and has been a trusted government and industry partner since 1934. As a non-profit research institute, they team with their customers and attack their problems with passion and objectivity.

The Project
In 2009, Digiprove commissioned GTRI through its dedicated research facility in Ireland (Georgia Tech Ireland) to evaluate its technology. The first phase of the project was focussed on:
  • Independently verifying claims made for the patented Digiprove process
  • Independently verifying that the deployed Digiprove technology at actually fulfils these claims in practice

The Results
"The findings of the study have proved that the process described in the patent does indeed provide a tamper-proof way to show that digital data has not changed since its timestamp. The process also provides a provision to validate any alteration made after it has been time stamped. Some of the key uses for this technology are:
  • Because the verification process is very quick, data that is being displayed or printed can be verified in real-time, identifying any tampering or otherwise assuring the integrity of the data
  • A person or entity can prove their possession of any digital content at a given date and time.
Furthermore, the software does faithfully implement the patented 'Digiprove' process providing an authenticated method for establishing proof of existence and possession of digital content of any kind."
