The Information Assurance Platform is a trust and assurance platform that is open, decentralised and governed by the community.
It allows applications to leverage the Information Assurance Toolbelt, including CyberTraces, CyberChains, CyberShields and CyberStates, to perform functions such as distributed computation, attestation and verification interactions, validation functions, and related operations surrounding the storage, processing and transmission of information for individuals, organisations (inc. DAOs), companies, NGOs and governments anywhere, while data owners and operators can retain full control over the extent to which information is private.
The IAP is possible thanks to the IAP token. IAP tokens function as a crypto-economic incentive to enable the distributed power, security and scalability of the network. Integral to the operation of the platform and provision of the service, IAP tokens provide the technical glue that bind the components of the system together, enabling seamless, secure and reliable next generation distributed ledger technology services for information assurance.
