Debunking the Zero-Sum Game
Promoting new certifications and open technologies to deliver radically-unprecedented IT security to all citizens, and then critical societal systems, while solidly enabling legitimate constitutional lawful access.
Trustless Computing Certification Body & CivicNet
Since 2014, the Trustless Computing Association has been promoting and building the Trustless Computing Certification Body, a new high-level IT security certification body and schema, aimed at ultra-high, radically-unprecedented levels of trustworthiness. The latter are primarily achieved through (1) extreme levels of ethical public security-review in relation to complexity of all tech and processes critically-involved in the entire lifecycle, down to CPU design and chip fabrication oversight; and through (2) extreme levels of citizen-accountability, independence, and technical proficiency of the governance and socio-technical process, including the wide utilisation of citizen-witness and citizen-jury b.ased oversight processes.
In parallel, our R&D and governance partners and spin-off startup TRUSTLESS.AI are building CivicNet: a 1st compliant low-royalty open computing base, ecosystem and IT service.While initially targeted at the confidentiality, integrity and non-repudiability of the most critical civilian and governmental transactions and communications, TCCB will expand to other sub-domains, and to ultra-high availability use cases. It aims to be complementary, synergic and inspirational for existing and upcoming cybersecurity certifications. It will strongly promote downward compatibility in respect to EU Secret, eIDAS Qualified, Common Criteria EAL4, SOG-IS, and inspire future certification schemas within the new European Cybersecurity Certification Framework.
