Decentralized Data Backups

A decentralized data backup plan allows you to securely distribute private informationā€” ā€œsecretsā€ ā€” in different encrypted shares amongst an untrusted network, which makes it decentralized.

Create Decentralized Data Backups With The Help Of Your SafeKeyā€™s Internal Storage.

SafeKey has been designed with custom internal storage that allows encrypted shares of sensitive data to be stored offline. SafeKey is also the only device thatā€™s compatible with InheritiĀ®, our platform to create your own data backup plans.

Thanks to our self-developed and patented Secret Shares Distribution Protocol (SSDP) you can easily set up data backup plans with a combination of your SafeKey and InheritiĀ®. This unique process is developed so that you (or multiple people if you want) can safely maintain (shared) ownership of your data via different SafeKey(s).

If a backup plan ever needs to be opened, the SafeKeys have to be brought together to merge and decrypt the individual shares. If thatā€™s done successfully, the secret data gets revealed. Until then, the data stays decentralized and secret, only known to you as the creator of the backup plan. Each individual share is useless on its own but when all the shares are together, they reconstruct the original secret.

What Is A Decentralized Data Backup?

A decentralized data backup plan allows you to securely distribute private informationā€” ā€œsecretsā€ ā€” in different encrypted shares amongst an untrusted network, which makes it decentralized. In our case: different SafeKeys in combination with the blockchain.

A secure data backup plan helps you to store data in such a way that it is unreadable or unhackable, in difference to storing secret data in plain text on your computer or hard drive.

Setup a decentralized data backup plan to keep your digital assets such as private keys, seed phrases, bank accounts, digital wallets, passwords, photos, videos, receipts, lyrics, certain online accounts or even your biggest untold secrets safe.

The Problem With Traditional Data Backups And Storage Devices.

In an advancing digital world, the distribution of secret data is critical in terms of digital assets and private information. Currently, centralized digital vaults or personal hard drives act as digital ā€˜safe havensā€™ for data but these storage methods are under constant threat from hackers aimed at gaining access to your private data.

The rise of the internet and digital assets requires a more secure method of safeguarding information which can harbor high valuations. Available backup options require trust in a trustless world and are no longer effective in providing the most secure methods of storing sensitive data.

Have you ever thought about what would happen if your hard drive crashes? Or the company that builds your password manager gets hacked or disappears?

There should be better and safer ways to keep your data safe, right?

Prevent Data Loss With Your Immutable Decentralized Backup Plan.

Have you ever thought about what happens if someone intercepts one of your personal devices or backups and gets hold of the required passwords for your online accounts? Or even worse, gets the private keys or seed phrases of your crypto wallets. One person can easily steal all your funds or hide all your data without you even noticing.

A decentralized backup plan created with InheritiĀ® and stored on multiple SafeKeys gives you the power to keep control over your assets forever.

Think about:

  • Private keys and seed phrases to access your crypto and NFTs
  • Email accounts
  • Social media accounts
  • Data from all your devices: computers, smartphones, ā€¦
  • All data stored on your hard drives or in your cloud
  • Domain names
  • Bank accounts and investments

So how does it work?

How Do Decentralized Backups Work With Your SafeKey?

The most secure solution is to create your own decentralized data backup plans through InheritiĀ® in combination with multiple SafeKeys. Itā€™s the only 100% decentralized solution available and its unique Secret Shares Distribution Protocol (SSDP) has multiple patents in different jurisdictions around the world.

Simply said: InheritiĀ® encrypts and splits data into secret shares. Those shares are then stored on multiple SafeKey devices and have to be brought back together in order to reveal the data.

Important to note here is that you never directly store your passwords, private keys or seed phrases on your SafeKeys. Instead you leave encrypted shares which are useless and unreadable on their own. No one will ever have access to your data or will be able to read it, not even SafeKey or InheritiĀ®.

Youā€™re the only one that knows what data gets encrypted.

With this, SafeKey is finally enabling people to confidently backup private credentials in a way that is secure and empowering by smartly applying Shamir’s Secret Sharing Algorithm.
