What is the Integra Ledger?A Blockchain for the Global Legal Industry
Integra Ledger is an enterprise blockchain designed to improve data integrity, data security, interoperability, and productivity in the world’s legal industry. It is developed using the open source Hyperledger Fabric blockchain. Specifically, it can be used to confirm authenticity of contracts, confirm contract status, improve security and privacy of documents and contracts, improve data interchange between corporate legal departments and law firms, and add functionality to existing software systems.
Private messages, documents, agreements, and other data are not stored on the blockchain. Rather, a cryptographic hash of the information is stored on the blockchain to confirm existence and uniqueness.
Selected major law firms, companies, and universities can elect to host full “Veritas Nodes” of Integra Ledger. These nodes contain every entry in the permissioned blockchain and serve to ensure the integrity and redundancy of the distributed ledger.
