We are building the CivicPod,
a 2mm-thin touch-screen Wifi-enabled handheld device.
By merging uncompromising endpoint security down to CPU, fabrication oversight and certification governance, together with time-proven blockchain systems - the CivicPod seamlessly delivers radically-unprecedented levels of confidentiality and integrity to the most sensitive lawful communications, negotiations, e-banking and cryptocurrency transactions, while solidly enabling legitimate lawful access.
Initially reserved to high-profile enterprises and persons, it will become the ultra-secure smart back screen of tens of millions of Android-based smartphones, and then the root-of-trust of critical AI systems.
WHY & MARKET
The richest 200.000 persons make up more $27 trillions in wealth, yet they can't buy any device that is less insecure than an iPhone, regularly hacked even by simple researchers.
Cybersecurity is a problem for all, but a crucial one for hundreds of thousands of top executives, high net-worth individuals, civil rights activists, and even presidential candidates.
Whatever price they are willing to pay, there is no device available today that provides meaningful protection against even mid-level criminals. Nothing less insecure than an iPhone, regularly hacked even by simple researchers.
The World is turning in a Hacker Republic!. While cybersecurity market grew 30 times in 10 years to $260bn in 2022, the cost of cybercrime will hit $6 trillion the same year.
80% of such cost is due to endpoint security, according to Ponemon. An average of $17 million per year for a sizeable enterprise.
We re-conceptualize IT security as the byproduct of the governance of all human processes that are critically-involved in its entire lifecycle and supply chain.
We merge uniquely uncompromising security-by-design endpoint paradigms together with the best time-proven and industry-backed open-source blockchain technologies.
Our "trustless" approach extends all the way down to transparent and extremely-inspected CPU source designs, fabrication oversight and even certification processes.
We widely apply citizen-witness and citizen-jury processes to the entire lifecycle, adapted from nuclear safety and electoral systems, to protect against insider threats and abuse of legitimate lawful access.
A unique form factor and minimal features enable a seamless user experience that is 2-3 times faster than smartphones.
Unimagined levels of security will be the result of the unique economics and governance of an entire ecosystem.
CivicNet members consume cybersecurity by using CivicPods, an independent 2mm-thin touch-screen WiFi computing devices that are attached to the back of any smartphone via a case, or inserted into a dedicated leather wallet.
CivicNet members produce cybersecurity by running ultra-secure blockchain and anonymization nodes on their CivicDocks docking stations, or by submitting technical or organizational security improvements, core software upgrades, apps and dApps.
Our technological stack benefits from a 3-year old solid relationship with rare or unique technical and research partners.

TRUSTLESS.AI is just the tip of an iceberg, of an expanding community, of a movement, that we have been creating with the Trustless Computing Association (TCA).
Over the last 4 years, the Trustless Computing Associations has been promoting new standards and open technologies with levels of trustworthiness that are radically beyond state of the art. It has grown through unique partners and advisors into an active community of world leading experts, consultancies, the largest cyber industry associations, high-assurance open IT leaders, national state security and privacy agencies, and enterprises, around foundational R&D initiatives, a global Free and Safe in Cyberspace event series, publications and plans for public-private local ecosystems in Rome or Berlin.
Trustless Computing is the long-awaited paradigm shift. The key principle in the Trustless Computing Paradigms is to compute without the need or assumption of unverified trust in anything or anyone, except in the user-assessable technical proficiency, ethical stance and accountability of the organizational processes critically involved in the entire lifecycle of a product or a service.
Trustless Computing requires that all and every software, hardware and processes that are critically involved in the provisioning or lifecycle of a computing service – from high-level software-stack to CPU design to fabrication, to hosting room access – be subject to extreme verification relative to complexity, or to extremely resilient socio-technical oversight.
