Multiple Source Evidence Application Trust Model

Current evidence based systems rely on the application developer providing accurate information. Multiple methods for tampering with or spoofing such systems exist. This makes them less reliable. The new process discussed herein is much less susceptible to spoofing or tampering and therefore more reliable. It truly gathers multiple lines of evidence before making an comprehensive decision on trust.

What we are trying to do?

We are attempting to mobilize the creativity and innovative capacities of the Linux and broader open source community to codify the universe of preexisting inventions in defensive publications that upon publication in the IP.COM database will immediately serve as effective prior art that prevents anyone from having a patent issued that claims inventions that have already been document in a defensive publication. In addition to creating a vehicle to utilize this highly effective form of IP rights management for known inventions, it is hoped that the community will use defensive publications as a means of codifying future inventions should the inventors prefer not to make their invention the subject of a patent disclosure and application.
