We’ve updated the PatentSafe Repository Checker script, and importantly released it under an Open Source license (the GPL) which means anyone can check the integrity of a PatentSafe repository.
The project is on GitHub – here’s the project’s GitHub page.
The checker script is a completely separate implementation of the signature and repository code, and is a useful way for anyone – Amphora customer or not – to check that things are OK with their data.
An important part of PatentSafe’s value is that it creates an open repository which you can read and take in to court without needing any additional software from Amphora. Everything is completely open as standard, no need for a complicated export step, or any software except a PDF reader, a text reader, and OpenSSL. The open release of the checker script is just part of this.
