External Document Verification

If you have received a file that external to the DekkoSecure platform and the sender claims that it originated from the system, the validator can verify this.

After a document is uploaded to DekkoSecure and approved in DekkoSecure, its unique identity signature is stored securely (called a 'hash'). This value cannot be used to access the document and does not represent the documents content; it is simply a series of numbers and letters.

If you upload a document with the same value, this means that there is or was a document in the system with matching content. Positive matches will report pertinent details about the file such as its owner, and if applicable, user(s) who have signed it. Don't worry about specifying a hash - the checker automatically does this for you.

If you upload a document that returns a negative result this means that it has never existed in the DekkoSecure platform, or, if it did, it has been altered after the point that it was removed (downloaded).

The Document Validator is specific to each global DekkoSecure platform instance

How to validate a document


To validate a document, press [Upload file] or drag-and-drop the file on to the upload target. After satisfying the Captcha the validation result will be displayed.


Positive validations will be displayed with information about the file:

Positive validations for files that are signed in the DekkoSecure platform will list approval information.

Negative validations will be displayed as follows:

It is possible that a file with a negative validation did originate from the DekkoSecure platform, but it has since been modified which means the result is negative.
