Cyber trust you own
The future of digital
What We Are Building
Hotpyp is a cyber trust and connection platform. We’ll enable our users to create and own private dedicated connections that we call pyps. Within each pyp we’re building trust into the connection itself, making it seamless and easy to use. We bring life to the vital (yet abstract) concept of trust through innovative cryptography-based technology. Our formula for cyber-based trust integrates digital identity, access control, data privacy and security.
Connections are made to communicate and share.
Ours do it with trust built-in.
Why It’s Needed
The world needs a better solution to our many and continually growing trust problems. Without reliable cyber trust, much of the digital technology our society depends on would be severely crippled. Online commerce, banking and the security of sensitive data would be imperiled. Our extreme reliance on digital technology has elevated the stakes for cyber trust and yet today’s cyber trust is still largely cobbled together through piecemeal cybersecurity solutions. It’s a failing system as evidenced by relentless data breaches, privacy transgressions, cyber facilitated fraud, and burdensome user experiences. These failures produce innumerable losses of time, money, and productivity. The simple reality is that piecemeal solutions are not well suited to solve trust problems. When it comes to trust, every link in the chain must hold up, or the whole chain will fail.
The greater the level of trust that is attainable, the greater the functioning of society, business and economy.
Our approach to cyber trust is modeled after real-world trust relationships. Whereas traditional cybersecurity relies on a trusted 3rd party intermediary, our architecture supports direct peer-to-peer trust. This enables trust relationships to be established and maintained directly between the parties of trust, without the necessary involvement of a 3rd party intermediary. We believe the direct trust model is what’s needed for the future of cyber trust. When implemented properly, the direct trust model has potential advantages in security, reliability, efficiency, and scalability. The problem has been figuring out how to implement this approach in an easy and reliable way. Until now, it was a hard problem to solve.
What It Can Do
Trust begins with identity. There is only one you, and yet your digital identity is most certainly fragmented into hundreds of separate instances. Each fragment is the result of yet another relationship or account where you need to securely identify yourself. Our cryptography-based technology takes an innovative approach to unifying your digital identity. It offers the potential to have a single identity that can securely go anywhere. We believe enabling a unified identity is the ultimate feat in making trust easy.
Our technology can be used to solve everyday problems that affect nearly everyone – byproducts of a world with ineffectual systems of trust, including:
- Password fatigue
- Identity theft and fraud
- Scams involving false identity
- Weak privacy protections
- Relentless spam
Beyond solely addressing the problems of today, our trust technology can provide new capabilities with a vast and growing need. For now, we’ll leave out the details about what new gear (our chosen term for the stuff) we’re building. Suffice it to say, it’s all linked to trust.
As a developer of trust technology, we aim to make it easy for the mainstream.
