What is Cyqur?

Cyqur's patent password protection is a browser software extension that aims to protect your data. It does this by encrypting, fragmenting, and distributing your data across multiple clouds. This process ensures that your data is secure and protected from unauthorized access. Additionally, Cyqur records the provenance of your data to the blockchain, which adds an extra layer of security.

Where is my data stored within Cyqur?

Your password, which is encrypted and fragmented, is securely stored in packets across the cloud storage locations that you choose. These locations are owned and controlled by you, ensuring maximum security for your data.  
Additionally, our application cache allows you to access your packets immediately after creating them or later from your vault. You have the freedom to select your preferred cloud providers, and the security of your data is guaranteed through blockchain-based proof of record.  

What are the 3 unique problems that Cyqur solves?

1. Hacking prevention involves encrypting, fragmenting, and distributing your data across multiple clouds. This process ensures that your data is secure and protected from unauthorized access.

2. Cloud providers going down (business continuity) - If one of your cloud storage systems experiences an outage, you will still have access to your data with Cyqur because we ensure redundancy by storing your data across three separate cloud platforms.

3. Scrapping of data - refers to the unauthorized extraction and monetization of data. However, with fragmented data in place, such as through the use of Cyqur, it becomes difficult for companies to exploit your data as it is in scattered pieces.

Here are the possible causes for payment issues with credit, debit cards, and cryptocurrency for online purchases:
Credit and Debit Cards:
• Insufficient Funds: Ensure that your bank account or credit card has enough available funds to cover the transaction.
• Incorrect Information: Double-check that you have entered the correct card details, including the card number, expiry date, and security code (CVV).
• Expired Card: Verify that your card has not expired, as an expired card will be declined.
• Card Restrictions: Some cards have specific restrictions on online transactions or international payments. Contact your card issuer to confirm if any restrictions are in place.
• Fraud Detection: Banks and credit card companies may have fraud detection systems that flag unusual or suspicious transactions. If your payment is declined, contact your bank to ensure the transaction is authorized.
• Payment Gateway Issues: Occasionally, technical issues with the payment gateway or the merchant's website can cause payment failures. Try again later or contact customer support for assistance.
Cryptocurrency:
• Blockchain Network Congestion: Cryptocurrency transactions rely on blockchain networks, which can experience congestion during times of high activity. If the network is congested, your transaction may take longer to be confirmed. Insufficient
• Network Fees: When sending cryptocurrency, you need to include an appropriate network fee. If the fee is too low, the transaction may not be processed promptly or at all.
• Wallet Compatibility: Ensure that the wallet you are using supports the specific cryptocurrency you are trying to use for the transaction. Some wallets may not be compatible with certain cryptocurrencies.
• Incorrect Address: It is crucial to enter the recipient's cryptocurrency address accurately. A single character mistake can result in a failed transaction.
• Wallet Connectivity: If your wallet is not properly connected to the network or experiencing connectivity issues, it may prevent successful transactions. Check your wallet's status and internet connection.

Please note that these are general factors that can contribute to payment issues, and specific situations may have additional causes.

What is in a ‘Packet’?

A packet might include:

👉 The tags assigned when the secret was created.
👉 The date and time when the secret was encrypted.
👉 A unique identifier for grouping similar packets. Information about any cloud where the packet has been uploaded, including blockchain storage.
👉 An internal hash used for integrity verification and proof of the secret's authenticity.
👉 Details about the encoding used, which defaults to base64, and the encryption algorithm applied.

A full packet comprises all fragments and metadata, including tags and timestamps. When imported into Cyqur and the correct password is applied. Subsequent decryption of the secret/value reveals the actual secret. The puk is recalculated against the internally stored value to ensure file integrity. The meta represents the millisecond timestamp in UNIX format.
