Indeed, our technology applies to any heterarchical acyclic directed graph of non-volatile storage/compute nodes connected by any network whether two way or one way. A familiar example of such a structure is DNS on the Internet, as well as any modern laptop, desktop, or server. Our interest is fast, cost effective, assured, secure, and safe protection of privacy sensitive data and programs in a heterogeneous distributed storage/compute environment.
