PRODUCTS & SERVICES

Keychain provides data authentication products and services. Our products leverage blockchain and distributed ledger technologies to provide a uniform, global next-generation infrastructure for data security for the financial, IoT, and enterprise spaces. We provide hosting and operational support for critical applications in capital markets, corporate and trade finance, medical, manufacturing, smart city/grid, connected automobiles, and networks.

PRIMARY PROBLEM SOLVED

Keychain solutions solve the problem of data authenticity and provenance. This problem is concerned primarily with questions such as 'has data been tampered with?', 'who digitally signed the data?', 'who has access to the data?'. We use the term data to include any information, be it financial messages (trades and orders), documents, invoices, IoT sensor data from a factory/car/power plant, doctor prescrption, etc.
