Providentia Worldwide Announces Globally Verifiable Unique Identifiers for Blockchain and Distributed Computing
Washington DC Dec 15, 2020 -- Providentia Worldwide, LLC announces the capability to create globally verifiable identifiers (GVUI) for a wide range of computing applications. Backed by strong cryptography and blockchain technology, the team brings a system by which the traditional universally unique identifier (UUID) can be verified across all computing paradigms and across all time and space. Designed as a component in larger systems -- especially those which depend on a degree of external validation and/or randomness to be trusted.
US Patent US10853354B2 brings a massively scalable method of creating trusted identifiers to blockchain systems (as a chain agnostic oracle) and to traditional platforms (through APIs) and is a game-changer for verification systems worldwide. From the abstract:
The disclosed systems and methods facilitate the creation of the globally verifiable unique identifiers to a level of scalability unattainable without employing the underlying two-dimensional blockchain structure, metadata, and cryptographic information stored on the blockchain. Moreover, the system avoids collisions and name conflicts among the globally verifiable unique identifiers, supports post-creation verification of the globally verifiable unique identifiers, and provides a variety of ancillary functions using the globally verifiable unique identifiers.
GVUIs mark Providentia's entry into the software ecosystem for blockchain and distributed ledger technologies and their efforts to provide useful infrastructure to support the blockchain and distributed computing markets generally.

Providentia Worldwide is proud to be a part of the Kudelski Security Specialized Partner ecosystem. Our team works on a variety of technologies and brings our expertise in infrastructure, middleware, blockchain behavior and deployment, and risk and safety analyses to the wider Kudelksi world.
Cheseaux-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland and Phoenix (AZ), USA, January 14, 2020 – Kudelski Security, the cybersecurity division of the Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S), today announced a major expansion to its partner ecosystem to meet growing demand for increased product security and privacy applications using the company’s expertise with cryptography, blockchain development and IoT systems deployment. The launch of Kudelski Security’s Blockchain Security Center in January last year, formalized the company’s approach to meet a steady increase in requests for code audits, assessments, and secure code development.
The viability and success of the growing number of systems leveraging blockchain-related technologies depends on the security of both the systems, the supply chain they rely on, and the data they transmit. As more organizations understand the importance of security, and the need to leverage emerging technologies to successfully navigate the fourth industrial revolution, the call from business leaders for advanced security services will only increase.
“As digital business transformation initiatives accelerate, we are seeing a growing demand for our security by design expertise. Our strategy to meet this need has been to build out a global partner network of specialized expertise that complements our strengths in cryptography, IoT, and blockchain,” said Kudelski Security CEO Andrew Howard. “Our expanded bench of partners works with us to bring additional hardware and software expertise in supply chain security, full-stack exchange testing, smart contract auditing, cryptography, and legal smart agreements.”
Most recently, Kudelski Security successfully completed an industry-leading security assessment on the crypto exchange of Crypto.com, a major digital asset trading platform that is among the first to spearhead a security-by-design approach to its offering.
Speaking on the assessment, Crypto.com CISO Jason Lau said: “Engaging with Kudelski Security in the assessment provides additional assurance that our systems are safeguarded from multiple cyber threats and indicates to users and investors that our commitment to cybersecurity in the crypto space is absolute.”
The assessment also sets an important industry benchmark in exchange security and aims to encourage other digital asset trading platforms to address the weaknesses inherent in centralized systems with a single point of failure.
“As more users begin trading in cryptocurrencies, it is extremely important to perform testing at levels similar to the most secure banking environments,” said Scott Carlson, head of Kudelski Security’s Blockchain Security Center. “As machine-driven interactions increase in our lives, particularly with our private and personal data, systems must be designed with security in mind from the very beginning.”
In addition to Crypto.com, Kudelski Security recently partnered with technical and process specialists from around the world to expand the company’s specialized security ecosystem and boost the capabilities and offerings of its Blockchain Security Center. Those partners include:
- Accord Project is an open ecosystem enabling anyone to build smart agreements and documents on a technology neutral platform.
