Ciphertext Policy Attribute Based Encryption, Smart Contracts and Curiosume

  • Resumes become –> Personal APIs.
  • Perosnal APIs represent –> Attributes.

Ciphertext Policy Attribute Based Encryption can provide access control by Personal API.

This would allow for a smart contract to hire algorithmically, to form emergent social networks automagically by Personal API, and to restrict access to individuals who have the attributes necessary by using CP-ABE with Personal APIs.

What is Ciphertext Policy Attribute Based Encryption (CP-ABE)?

Ciphertext Policy Attribute Based Encryption is a relatively new kind of encryption where access control is set according to attributes. The policy determines which attributes are required for access to the confidential data.  In specific  CP-ABE has use cases which include protecting health records, securing communications networks,  and more. A benefit of this granular approach to access control is that privacy can be better preserved  while limiting the necessary trust requirements in specific individuals. In CP-ABE any individuals who match the attributes and only these individual will be allowed access.

What are smart contracts?

Smart contracts are able to function as self enforcing scripts which can automate processes such as hiring, firing, pairing, and more. Participants can be paired algorithmically according to the knowledge they have by smart contracts.

What is Curiosume?

Curiosume helps to account for intangible knowledge assets. It is an analog to digital converter for knowledge assets. It will be interesting to see how knowledge assets can be allocated by artificial intelligence should an artificial intelligence layer be built up on top of Curiosume. Curiosume puts the individual in control of their data as owners and with the digital personal API which functions like a public key the data is  only meaningful when paired with a private key.

WiKid (Wisdom, Innovation, Knowledge, Information, Data) Tools allow for the creation of social currencies. Innovation can be valued and transformed into an asset using WiKid Tools. Because it curiosume allows for mathematical representation and observation of a network of knowledge assets it allows for predictive analysis.
