HATDeX HATs deploy Docker Containers on Amazon Web Services (AWS), which wraps up a complete system that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools and system libraries.
With the individual's HAT in a Container, it will be lightweight and will run on any computer, on any infrastructure and in any Cloud, and therefore accessible anywhere by the user across all devices.
Each Container runs a complete and independent HAT, and the only way to communicate with a HAT is via designated APIs. The Container-based solution also provides an added layer of protection by localising impact of any security issues and eliminating the possibility of system administrators enabling unauthorised access to the data of large numbers of users.
- Security: Benefit from added security of the individual's own HAT microserver (one database per person dis-incentivises hacking)
- Claim Data: Ability for the HAT owner to pull their data privately and securely into their own HATs through data plugs, without the organisation's involvement
- Exchange Data: Ability to ask for any data from a HAT owner through data debits on demand and in real time - reduce the need (and the risk) to hoard personal data
- Namespaces: Organisations building apps on the HAT have their own namespaces in the HAT to give control of the personal data they hold to their customers
- Decentralised network effects: Personal data across all HAT enabled apps can be shared by HAT owners with other apps, creating greater engagement
- Future proofing: HAT Owners can build their own data repository for the future. They are stakeholders of their own data quality and share the data with organisations that they trust.
