All About CHIF

CHIFs Are the Future of Data

CHIF ProtectIntroducing the revolutionary Cybersecurity Hybrid Immutable Format (CHIF) file, a patented universal file type that presents unparalleled security, accessibility, and multimedia integration. With CHIF, you can consolidate various forms of digital data, including text, audio, image, video, PDF, database, JSON, and more, into one single container.

This innovative format ensures that your data is kept safe and easily accessible, all while providing a seamless multimedia experience. Say goodbye to multiple file types and hello to CHIF – the ultimate all-in-one solution for your digital needs.

CHIF Protect holds a patent for a groundbreaking data container that enables administrators to securely encrypt individual data pieces within the container. This innovative technology provides a robust solution for safeguarding sensitive information, with each data piece enjoying its own layer of protection.

Use Cases

CHIFs store and secure different types of data in a container that can be encrypted.

The CHIF file format, known as Cybersecurity Hybrid Immutable Format (CHIF), boasts a robust set of data management tools that enable its administrators to incorporate a wide range of digital content and regulate their access via licensed usage of the CHIF codec.
Our approach involves integrating the codec seamlessly into clients’ software or systems through the creation of APIs, thereby unlocking the full potential of this feature-rich platform. With its multifaceted capabilities, the CHIF represents a game-changing innovation in the realm of data management and file sharing.

 

CHIF files can create more digitally accessible websites, apps, and software.

The Cybersecurity Hybrid Immutable Format (CHIF) file serves a multifaceted mission, one of which is to enhance the accessibility of the internet and applications for individuals with disabilities. Achieving this goal entails incorporating various forms of perceivable media into a single file, a requisite for websites and applications that adhere to the WCAG 2.1 international standards. Failure to do so could result in lawsuits brought forth by individuals with disabilities, particularly those who rely on the internet for their public needs or employees who require access to SAAS (Software as a Service) portals. The CHIF’s implementation can mitigate the risk of such legal action and improve the user experience for all.

CHIF technology at glance

Crafting the CHIF is a breeze with its secured APIs tailor-made for developers, empowering them to command and mechanize the entire process. The patented codec with built-in Digital Rights Management (DRM) and metadata grants users absolute authority over their data and files, whether at rest or in motion.

ENCODER

The innovative CHIF encoder incorporates digital content by utilizing a patented/proprietary algorithm along with DRM, attributes, and the option for additional security measures, resulting in a self-contained CHIF file.

DECODER & PLAYER

Unpacking data elements from the CHIF and upholding DRM and security regulations is the name of the game for the CHIF decoder. Meanwhile, the CHIF player works in tandem with the decoder to visually manifest digital content in compliance with the complex web of rules and relationships established within the CHIF.

Cyber Security Features of the CHIF

By using our API, developers and administrators can access the data handling and security features that are unique to the Cybersecurity Hybrid Immutable Format file.

Encryption

The Cybersecurity Hybrid Immutable Format (CHIF) system ensures the privacy and security of your data through the employment of the Bring Your Own Key encryption model. This model allows each piece of data to be encrypted separately, with a unique key that differs from any other piece of data. As a result, users can have varying levels of access within the same data file, providing unparalleled flexibility and control.

Additionally, CHIFs utilize the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm, a Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) adopted by government IT systems for its superior security measures. Your data is kept safe and secure with CHIFs, ensuring that only authorized users can access it.

Digital Rights Management (DRM)

Creating CHIF files involves defining data elements that serve to establish and govern digital rights. This entails specifying various parameters, including permissible domains and devices, as well as the date range for time-sensitive content. Moreover, metadata capture can be employed to facilitate tracking of file ownership and capture other pertinent custom information. By incorporating these features into a CHIF, users can effectively control the distribution and use of their digital assets.

Immutable / Non-Fungible Data

Every CHIF is assigned a Universal Unique ID (UUID) and accompanied by additional metadata upon encoding. The CHIF CODEC renders the resulting file immutable, preventing any further modifications to its contents. As a result, any changes to the original material will require the creation of a new CHIF file. This approach makes it easy to manage version tracking, archiving, and security.

Block/Unblock

The potential for absolute data control is facilitated by our Universal Unique Identifiers. CHIFs possess a convenient built-in mechanism that enables the deactivation of files without causing destruction to the underlying data. However, it is imperative to acknowledge that this functionality is intertwined with the application and the environment, rather than the file per se. As a result, the information remains completely unaffected.

Analytics

The owner of each CHIF file has the power to trace its every move. Real-time tracking of the access date, time, and location of the file content enables the collection of comprehensive analytics and metrics on each instance of CHIF usage.

Efficiency

Have you ever felt restricted in your ability to showcase your content due to the limitations of video formats? Do you find yourself burdened by the inefficiency and cumbersome file sizes of videos? Well, fear not, for you can now take full control over your presentation with ease. Say goodbye to the struggles of video and embrace a new level of creative freedom.

STORAGE AND ENCRYPTION

ntroducing Piece by Piece Encryption – a cutting-edge security feature that allows for independent encryption of each container part during creation. Using the advanced AES encryption algorithm with a 256-bit key size, CHIF offers symmetric key encryption that can use either 128-bit or 256-bit keys. To further control data access and usage by role, encryption by data classification can be employed.
Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) adds to the flexibility of encryption methods by tailoring them to the specific value or purpose of your digital content. This unique approach allows for different pass keys to secure data at rest and in motion, enabling users and administrators to extract varying data sets and media from the same files.

In addition to its security features, Piece by Piece Encryption has a low storage overhead. Its files are optimized to be smaller for better cache-ability and can even be customized to produce only compressed versions of any file. This optimization can be added to the payload to significantly reduce storage size and bandwidth costs. With Piece by Piece Encryption, you can rest assured that your data is secure, accessible, and efficient.

CONTROL AND PROGRAMMABILITY

Dynamic Management
CHIF containers can be managed and customized based on the needs of the administrator. This can include the ability to set time and date restrictions, as well as control access based on domain name. A “remote control” can also be activated to revoke access to the container in a secure environment, while leaving the CHIF file untouched.

Unique Ownership
The CHIF system allows for the creation and management of a limited number of file copies, which can be uniquely owned and controlled by users and administrators. This approach enhances security and can also be leveraged for monetization purposes.

Enhanced Data Integration
Through the CHIF, different types of related data can be seamlessly integrated and permanently associated, both at rest and in motion. This results in a higher quality of data and greater insights for businesses and organizations.
