We have been told a lot that we are in the knowledge era, we are the information society, that is, a time when data is king. It is a visible reality for all, now the most successful companies are not dedicated to the industrial area but to the digital sector.
It is something that suits us, better facilities, more comfortable and better-paid jobs, in short, we are in the golden age of humanity, but not exempt from problems.
We enjoy connectivity at all times, it is wonderful to be able to access everything we need with a single click, however, when it comes to sensitive information, there are usually important drawbacks.
As much as we like to have instant access to our information, we can not allow the possibility of it being stolen by malicious people since whenever something is connected, there is the possibility that its security will be violated.
This is even a barrier to the adoption of cryptocurrencies in mass since their security systems are often outdated or inefficient. Example of these weaknesses has been the scandals of data filtering and millionaire robberies in crypto-assets.
Why can not we enjoy the latest technology with our truly important data? Because "if it's connected to the internet, it can be hacked." Luckily, Goldilock found an ingenious solution.
What is Goldilock?
“Not hot storage, not cold storage, just the right storage.”
Goldilock is a company dedicated to providing sensitive and important data storage services, such as personal information or private keys and crypto-assets, lending the advantages of hot and cold storage at the same time, without presenting any of the disadvantages of both methods.
This is because the company found a very smart solution; people want the accessibility, comfort, and ease of less secure methods and, at the same time, the strong security of using hardware without an internet connection, then, why not create a system where the devices that store the data are only connected to the network when is necessary?
How does it work?
This is the technology that Goldilock has developed, called "physical air gap disconnection", that is, the devices that store your data will only connect to the network when needed, otherwise they will be physically disconnected from the Internet.
- The data is stored on a device without the possibility of accessing them from the internet.
- With a non-IP process, the wallet is activated for its accessibility.
- Then, it can be accessed securely through an encrypted URL.
It may seem like a simple solution, but it is fully functional, in addition, Goldilock implements other security measures, such as Two-Factor Authentication, storage devices are unique for each user, data encryption, among other measures.
Goldilock will allow individuals or institutions reluctant to invest in crypto-assets, are left with no excuses to take the decisive step, because now they will not fear the loss of their investments, and will enter huge amounts of money to market.
However, the company does not stay there, since its services can be extended to any sector that requires maximum security for their data, whether they are corporations, governments or individuals, digital data will be well protected with this system.
Application of this technology
The most visible use of this new system is the storage of private keys –as the owner key here in STEEMit– or crypto-currencies –i.e., as a wallet–, so that no hacker can access this data.
A more personal use of Goldilock is the storage of personal data, such as identity documents, important passwords, and other private information. Before, this should be stored in physical, risking damage or lost –something that has happened to me a lot–, now will be possible access from anywhere.
Rather than replacing the old storage methods, Goldilock comes to reinforce them, since it is the perfect solution for those cryptocurrency exchanges that store our private keys in hot wallets, as for those services that only offer hot storage.
However, Goldilock does not stay there, as this technology can be integrated into secure cold storage methods so that in addition to offering security, they can offer accessibility and ease.
We have already said that Goldilock goes beyond the world of the blockchain, this is because the company can associate with companies of all kinds that require confidentiality –insurers, banks, governments– allowing a more responsible use of these data for the benefit of the consumer.
It seems that we are facing an explosion of blockchain-startups, this is caused by the discovery of the great potential of this technology and, much is trusted in the security of this, however, although the blockchain was created to operate with extreme security, it has basically the same vulnerabilities as other systems.
That is why these new companies can present serious problems in the integrity of their data in the future, especially because these startups usually handle important data –private keys, crypto-assets, sensitive information, medical records, among others–, it is here where Goldilock presents itself as a great opportunity for them.
If these new companies manage to integrate Goldilock into their systems, they can work in peace, giving their users confidence that their data will be completely secure.
In the case of more individual and personal use, Goldilock sounds like a melody to the ears, those who have the ordeal of living under a big bureaucracy, know that the government always ask for papers or all kinds of personal and sensitive data, that must be in physical, going through risks and discomforts.
Goldilock offers a comfortable and accessible solution, as it allows you to store important data with exceptional security, all within reach to use them only when required, without having to expose sensitive information to unnecessary risks.
The security system used by Goldilock would be very useful for videogame companies or similar companies that offer subscriptions for better services –such as Netflix or Spotify–, storing the credit card data of their users online, they are running a great risk.
Something that causes a lot of scandal and stir, are the continuous leaks of images or private information from different services in the cloud –like iCloud–, if these companies use Goldilock technology, the data won't be connected all the time and, users will be more secure.
Another necessary use of Goldilock, are police files –sensitive personal information or agents' data– although these are stored in an internal network, they are not invulnerable to cyber attacks. In the case of rape victims or murder suspects, this is very important, since there are unstable people who can carry out regrettable actions.
Although I have named several examples, the use of Goldilock is practically infinite, since each innovation –or old technology and infrastructure– that needs true security measures, will require the use of this system.
Importance of digital security
Nowadays, the one who has information has power, that's why the data must be protected with great zeal since there are those who want this power with illicit and dishonest motives.
Already many governments are taking action on the matter, legislating the security failures of companies with millions in fines, however, it is unnecessary, since the price of a security vulnerability can be much higher.
Whether the legislation is necessary or not, is a fact, so Goldilock takes advantage of this opportunity, since it has the most advanced security technology, offering companies and states the option to protect their data without any vulnerability.
Goldilock understood the needs of the clients and the entire world, that can be summarized in: Take the privacy of our data seriously! This company comprehended the importance of information protection, so it managed to materialize true digital security.
LOCK Token and alliance with NEO
Goldilock will use the LOCK token in the blockchain of NEO, this due to the great advantages offered by the digital economy of it, making NEO the safest blockchain that will exist.
The reasons for this alliance –Goldilock and NEO– are the fundamental principles, what principles? Better technology, greater efficiency, and standards that meet the necessary policies to integrate with governments and large companies. These three principles harmonize with Goldilock's vision, allowing greater benefits for future users of the service.
The use of the LOCK token will allow access to the Goldilock wallet, vital for the use of the service, in addition to offering benefits such as providing a record of the activities carried out and encrypting the data so that neither the Goldilock team can know the content of these.
Although for now only will work with NEO, it is planned that in the near future other more popular cryptocurrencies can be included.
The company was founded by two seasoned entrepreneurs in the technological area, with extensive experience in the subject and time exploiting the possibilities of the blockchain, in addition, they have experts in security, with experience in the military and robotic field. All this is joined by engineers and blockchain specialists.
Among the advisors are two great engineers of renown and experience in cutting-edge sectors such as hardware infrastructure and aerospace engineering, in addition, an experienced businessman who has worked on projects in various parts of the world.
Goldilock shows that the best solution is not the most complicated and intricate, but the simplest and most direct. Thanks to this company, you can not only actively and securely manage all your cryptocurrencies, trading with them at the most convenient time, but you will have the opportunity to save your most important data without having to stay up late thinking about a pile of inconveniences.
This company will completely revolutionize the handling of sensitive data in today's world, strengthening the security of the most important pillar of our knowledge society: data.
