Vault12 At A Glance
The Vault Cryptostorage platform is made up of core elements based on two fundamental innovations: decentralized cryptography and a decentralized storage network.
Vault12 uses a powerful form of cryptography known as Hierarchical Threshold Shamir Secret Sharing (H3S) which splits your crypto assets into shards and distributes them across a mesh network of trusted people and devices.
Once encrypted the resulting shards are stored in a mesh information storage (MIST) network of trusted people and devices, known as Guardians, that you invite to secure your vault.
Restoration and Responding
Not all of your Guardians need to respond to restore requests – your cryptocurrency assets can be restored fully with only a partial number of Guardians. In the future, you will be able to define exactly what that storage policy is for each vault.
Security and Privacy
Cryptocurrencies are opaquely stored on a mesh network of devices – which are controlled by you and your trusted circle. You have complete ownership and privacy of your data – Vault12, the company, guardians or anyone else cannot access or see the data.
Security and Storage Policies
You will be able to define security policies for adding more than 6 Guardians, assigning high-security Guardians, and defining how many Guardians needed to unlock your assets. For storage, you will be able to define additional members of your mesh network to provide greater resilience, global distribution, and redundancy.
