Second US Patent Granted to LockDown for Securing and Sharing Data Keys

Columbus, Ohio, December 12, 2017 – LockDown, a forward-thinking company that is pioneering a new standard for data control and digital ownership, recently announced that its technology has been awarded a second patent, United States Patent Number 9,842,217.
“Current private and public key encryption methods use a small amount of random data in conjunction with a deterministic algorithm to disorder the information into secure data,” said LockDown CTO Eric Parker. “The weakness is the deterministic algorithm and the size of the randomness to start the encryption process. Our first patent solved this problem with 8,000-bit random keys created every time you lock your data. This patent solves how to share and protect those keys.”
 
The company believes that your data should be secure and under your control no matter where it is stored, how it is transported, or who uses it.
