A nut is a data structure commonly referred as a container, wrapper, or capsule that protects any data you put inside of it such as documents or other unstructured files, directories of files, databases, and applications.
A nut has built-in access control layers which travel with the data in any environment: a location agnostic property of a nut. The security on the data protected by a nut container is consistent across on-premises, off-premises, cloud storages and throughout a supply chain.
A nut directly applies Zero Trust principles on the data object itself in an independent way making central access control systems optional. Data owners set cryptographic technical controls on the payload for sharing at a fine grain level including an industry first: Verify-Only. This property can directly mitigate Insider Threats.
The NUTS ecosystem adheres to Zero Trust Architecture goals by providing its own key management system and utilizing nut containers to store and transport all sensitive data including its keys.
The Zero Trust Architecture goals outlined by the Executive Order of May 12, 2021, Section 10 (k) can be implemented by the use of NUTS technologies.
