View, protect and control your digital data footprint

Datona Labs is a not-for-profit organisation exploring a concept we call Smart Data Access developed as a platform called

In Smart Data Access, a pseudonymous smart contract deployed on a global blockchain replaces the data-access terms of a traditional data-sharing contract between data owner and requester.  
The 'Smart Data Access Contract' (S-DAC) is used as a gatekeeper to a 'data vault', a cloud-based or privately hosted service that stores the shared data and restricts the requester's access to it based on the terms in the S-DAC.  
The vault service allows the owner to manage the data or terminate the contract, if the terms in the contract allow it.  

With Smart Data Access, no organisations store our information outside of the vault's firewall.
Instead they access it directly from the vault service api whenever they need to, anytime 24/7, provided the S-DAC allows it.
This way, our information remains under our oversight and control.


Some benefits of Smart Data Access are:

- it gives data owners full visibility and control over their digital data footprint - even to delete their digital footprint if the terms allow;

- it allows for complex data access conditions, such as dynamic workflows and multi-party access;

- it helps organisations meet their data protection obligations by automatically enforcing the terms of the contact;

- it helps regulators audit organisations by automatically verifying that each piece of accessible data has the owner's permission;

- it can be used by both online and traditional organisations;

- it opens up new opportunities such as monetisation of data;

Open & Permissionless is designed as a permissionless, open platform constructed from a smart contract enabled blockchain and a commercial marketplace of third party data vault nodes.
Software will be released open source to develop the ecosystem through third party data vault development and integration with third party applications.

- Organisations and community projects will be able to deploy their own data vault nodes on the network, whether as commercial cloud vaults or as private local servers.

- Enterprises will be able to integrate data vault software into their existing infrastructure to enable Smart Data Access while retaining their queryable local database.

- Developers will be able to integrate Smart Data Access into their applications using the application libraries.

Datona Labs will lead the way with the development of Datona Vault and Datona Identity - projects designed to showcase Smart Data Access through control of our personal identity data.  
These are described on our website and in our white paper.


The Datona Labs team has spent the last 20+ years leading, developing and assuring high integrity, safety critical software within the rail, aerospace and defense industries.
We are software subject matter experts and know how to deliver software projects from conception to disposal.

Get Involved

There is much more to the project than described here.  We invite you to visit our website, read our white paper and provide your feedback as we share our project publicly for the first time.  
We are on the lookout for people with technical, management, marketing, financial, legal, regulatory or social media experience to help move the project forward.
Please connect with us through bitcointalk, our discord channel or via email.  We look forward to hearing from you.
