Authentific is 100% secure and tamper-proof. Powered by Blockchain technology, it uses “digital ledger technology,” an unhackable building block that is shared amongst a community that is protected by and automatically verified through complex mathematical algorithms. Each blockchain is decentralized and immutable once uploaded. The very nature of blockchain ensures integrity and thus, eliminates any threat of fraud.

You can digitize and issue any type of document such as diplomas, degrees, service certificates, birth, marriage, medical fitness, police certificates, land title deeds and many more in PDF format.

Authentific provides the utmost secure protection for your sensitive data. Alongside the options of cloud and blockchain digital storage, we also uniquely provide customizable on-premise/facilities storage: nothing ever leaves your site, ensuring absolute adherence to strict regulations and privacy laws.

We offer training as part of our package, but Authentific very simple and user friendly, individuals with no experience with technology or IT can still learn it easily within a day or two.

A file hash, also known as a checksum, is a string of characters that is generated using a mathematical algorithm to represent the content of a file. The purpose of generating a hash for a file is to verify the integrity and authenticity of the file. When a file is hashed, the resulting hash value is unique to that file and any change to the file will result in a different hash value. File hashing is commonly used for verifying the integrity of files to ensure that they have not been tampered with.

IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) is a distributed protocol and network designed to create a permanent and decentralized method of storing and sharing files on the internet. Unlike the traditional web, which relies on centralized servers to host and distribute content, IPFS uses a peer-to-peer network to store and retrieve files.

IPFS accomplishes this by breaking files into small, unique chunks and storing them across multiple nodes on the network. Each chunk is identified by a unique content-addressed hash, which allows for efficient retrieval and verification of the data. Additionally, IPFS provides version control, meaning that different versions of the same file can be stored and accessed as needed.

One of the main benefits of IPFS is its potential to increase the speed and efficiency of content delivery. Because files are stored across multiple nodes, they can be retrieved from the node closest to the requester, reducing latency and bandwidth costs. Additionally, IPFS allows for content caching, meaning that frequently accessed files can be stored locally to further improve performance.

IPFS has many potential use cases, including decentralized file sharing, content distribution, and data archival. It is currently being used in a variety of applications, including web browsing, social media, and decentralized finance.
