Renaissance is a developing identity scheme to continuously address the challenges that arise from a more decentralized Internet/resource distribution network, including:

  • Data integrity
  • Authentication
  • Provenance
  • Encryption
  • Identification
  • Matchmaking

Renaissance is supported natively by both Dawn and Lovn. All Dawn Resource Objects are processed and activated by Renaissance.

Renaissance is designed and built to be human-centric.


Renaissance primarily implements algorithms that operate or depend on "natural models," which derive from real-world natural events and common knowledge. Natural models are all bounded, determined and fixed-size, making them easy to distribute and deploy. The methodology to fit computational representations back into selected natural models through algorithms is named FeelingSafe.

Please note that Renaissance is not a machine learning module.

Renaissance Seal (RNSSL)

A Renaissance Seal is a signature generated and assigned to the resource objects by Renaissance. At the moment, it provides primary data integrity check capability and is expected to evolve as Dawn Lighthouse Community Nodes get incubated and deployed. Its main purpose is to help the client side verify whether the data they receive from a resource storage facility is genuine, authentic and complete.

In contrast to the text-based counterparts, image-based Renaissance Seals are primarily used in situations where graphics (e.g., EvE) or system-generated data objects serve as the additional/key information to transmit. For example, a Dawn resource object may carry GENSIG that illustrates the its values. Such information is "sealed" in an image.

In certain cases, when paired with a time code (system process timestamp), a RNSSL can be used for identification. Such usage is not encouraged and will be phased out gradually as the identification solution develops further.

Renaissance EvE (RNSEE)

Qualia-oriented universal abstract identity mechanism. (see qualia)

EvE for non-tangible creative/digital resource objects

EvE builds the readable interface for media files and, consequently, converts them into accessible and identifiable Dawn resource objects. Please note that EvE is not a computer vision program.
