Milagro D-TA Intellectual Property (IP) Clearance Status


A software client called a Decentralized Trust Authority, which is built upon the Apache Milagro Crypto-C library. This software client is part of the evolution of Apache Milagro. The vision is that the D-TA will be the server process that functions as the master key generation server for a) issuing Type-3 pairing/identity based secrets for M-Pin clients and servers (the original D-TA version) and b) safeguard shares of secrets like Bitcoin private keys.
