Mass Address Application
Work in progress
We’re entering the final 90 days and I wanted everyone to see the work we’ve completed thus far.
I will be writing a separate article on how a singularity offers 100% identity privacy in the not too distant future.
The final Mass Address application will use MFA but since we are bootstrap funded, we do not need MFA for an MVP. We can easily switch to MFA once we obtain investment.
The MVP (Minimum Viable Product) will have 4 icons on the bottom. The house icon is for your mailing address, the mailbox is for your mailing address, the statue of liberty is for your state/national ID numbers, and the cell phone icon is for your digital communication. Digital communication is for your email address and phone number is displayed. The images you see above are actually emojis. To speed up development, I used emoji’s instead of icons. The black line won’t be there in the finished app. Your authenticated name will be displayed at the top of the home page with the DNA helix in front of the name. The purpose of the DNA helix is classified. At some point in the future I will disclose what that means. I also haven’t made up my mind if I want to use profile photo’s. I just added mine to see what it would look like on the phone.
The physical address screen will be home base for your physical address on the internet. ALL of your online accounts that require a physical address will reflect the information contained in these fields. Unlike the hundreds of other profiles you have online, your physical address is not stored in a database. Each form field you see above is managed and secured by different companies on different servers. The application is designed in such a way that if all security policies and protocols failed, your physical address cannot be stolen in a breach. Once your physical address is authenticated, it becomes read only. This means you cannot change it unless you go back through the validation process.
Like your physical address, the mailing address screen will be home for your mailing address. This screen, if adopted by the market, will save the public and private sector over $20 billion a year. That is a FACT. If you don’t believe me, the next time you check your mail, see if you get something addressed to a previous resident. Now multiple that postage 160 million times.
The Mass Address application will be the safest place in the world for your identity. Remember what I said earlier about different companies protecting your information on different networks? Well, this also applies to your state and/or Federal ID. You might see one form field here but it’s stored in 2 different servers. If your social was stored on one server, it would be compromised in the event of a breach. It takes 3 companies to protect a social security number.
Our phone numbers and email addresses are an integral part of our identity. If stolen in a breach, they can be used to find other information about us ultimately leading to a complete breakdown in privacy. This is precisely what happened in the Equifax Data Breach. Your email address and phone number are broken into 2 parts and stored in different networks managed and secured by different companies.
The logout screen is fairly basic. Remember, we’re only doing the minimum for the MVP.
In summary I want to recap on some key points of the application. All singularities are read only. This means you cannot click on a form field and change your information on the fly. It’s not a profile. We assume everyone behind a phone or a keyboard is a hacker. Every change must be validated. We treat everyone’s identity as if our national security depends on it, because it does.
This is my life’s work. Nearly 6 years of research and development has gone into the platform.
