The product consists of 3 parts. OTAinfoSDK, OTAinfoLIB and OTAinfo Cloud.
Critical data requires additional information describing the trust and origin of the data. Validation of the information received, must be the capability of the consumer. Almost all companies have implemented this feature partially or completely.
Data pushed/requested travels between designated points. However either points may not be the true origin or final destination. Also the receiving point relies and accepts what it receives after validating the certificate or checksum or signature or all three. Any compromise on sender will compromise the rest of the chain.
A framework for data attestation that can be independent of data and its source will allow the consumers to be more intelligent in identifying the good data from rest of the data. Each step in the data lineage can create trust without disturbing the integrating and flow of data.
We automate the trust generation activity at each level in data lineage. Our infrastructure allows the trust generators to collaborate and make it available to any IoT device located in the galaxy.
IoT/remote devices use a collection of suppliers in different capacity and different levels in supply chain. It is not possible for all companies to have a trust aggregation and collaboration platform. There is a need for a standardized framework for trust building. OTAinfo provides it.
The subscriber of the account, owns the trust. OTAinfo cloud does advance level archiving management and generates multi-point verified trust in real time.
To get an insight in supply chain, origin of data must be documented and a verification system for accepting authentic data is required. Every manufacturer implements its own means to discover the source but not all parts/services are in house to them. Optimizing the production line requires a team work between multi tiered supply chain.
Data is a life line for business to succeed. Data is enriched by using AI/ML, Analytics etc to get better decision power during any known/unknown condition. The base of decision making depends on how trustworthy the data source is. A 100 percent certified source would yield reliable results versus regular or untrusted data source.
A supply chain is identified by the manufacturer to optimize business goals. However the digital revolution is still happening in many industries. This means the digital data exchange or collaboration on cloud (private/public). All deliveries of data are online and are 24X7. If the supply chain stakeholders can sign these data elements at the stage they push them for next level would help manufacturers be 24X7 self sufficient for establishing trust.
OTAinfo provides SDK that independently gets deployed at stakeholders locations and only collaborates to transfer trust on cloud. The actual data and trust generation mechanism is kept private and secured at the source.
OTAinfo SDK allows single step onboarding of new collaboration in the supply chain. OTAinfo tools allow the user to use SDK with helper or as a library based on the expertise of the user.
Each device is treated as an individual subscriber to verify trust for every piece of meaningful data received. It also generates trust when communicating important data.
