Executable Integrity Verification

This process disclosed in this publication provides such a mechanism that will verify the integrity of any given application. This mechanism is automatic and requires little or no input from the user. Products like Tripwire give a partial solution by using CRC checks on key system files. But they do not go far enough and they are not automatic and transparent to the end user.

What we are trying to do?

We are attempting to mobilize the creativity and innovative capacities of the Linux and broader open source community to codify the universe of preexisting inventions in defensive publications that upon publication in the IP.COM database will immediately serve as effective prior art that prevents anyone from having a patent issued that claims inventions that have already been document in a defensive publication. In addition to creating a vehicle to utilize this highly effective form of IP rights management for known inventions, it is hoped that the community will use defensive publications as a means of codifying future inventions should the inventors prefer not to make their invention the subject of a patent disclosure and application.
