CodeNotary Verify

Description

CodeNotary – it’s how integrity gets done.

This is a user friendly download link enhancer plugin that opens CodeNotary Verify to help visitors verify downloaded files.

Do you need to ensure the safety of the file’s you make available for download on your website? Need a plugin that makes it easy for your visitors to confirm the file they are pulling from your site is genuine and untampered? CodeNotary is the first ever blockchain-based file integrity application that has been adopted extremely fast with over 2.7 million verified assets to date.

CodeNotary protects downloaders of your hosted files against Man-in-the-Middle attacks. Each original file version you sign and make available for download will have its fingerprints forever and unchangeably stored on the blockchain. Any change, malicious or otherwise, to the file you make available for download will be inevitably flagged by the immutability of the blockchain, which will notify both you and your downloader to the potential danger.

FAQ

Why install?

90% of the 25,466 infected websites collected and analyzed by GoDaddy and Sucuri in 2018 were WordPress based sites. (https://sucuri.net/reports/2018-hacked-website-report/)

90% is extremely alarming. Attackers gaining access to your website can inject malware or worse into the files you offer to your users. The negative effects of compromises rob your brand name of its hard earned public trust and reputation.

Ensure the integrity of your site’s downloadable files and prevent your users from clicking a compromised download link and becoming infected themselves.

CodeNotary does the heavy lifting for you and verifies each file you offer for download by ensuring its fingerprints (aka it’s hash) match the fingerprints you originally saved for that respective file.

The benefit for you as a site owner is it’s one less thing you have to worry about. For your downloaders, they can feel at ease knowing they are protected downloading from your site.
