How does the IKR work?

The IKR record provides Proof of Existence (PoE) of your digital document via:

· A unique digital fingerprint which identifies your digital document

· An international time and date stamp associated with the digital fingerprint

Furthermore, the WIPO (The World Intellectual Property Organization) - which is part of the United Nations – is a registered IKR user. Later, if needed, you can then retrieve your IKR record to prove its existance and your possession.

What is the IKR fingerprint?

The IKR fingerprint uniquely identifies your document with proven cryptographic technology (similar to that used in Blockchain). However, the actual content of your document is kept secret - just like a person cannot be regerenated from a fingerprint, the document can not be regerenated from the IKR fingerprint.
