Verifiability is required to ensure that the generation process has not been circumvented. Traditional RNGs can only prove that it uses a random method but are not able to provide any technique to audit the results after they are generated. Meaning that the final result might have been manipulated, thus, they may be prone to insider fraud. This places heavy trust in the service provider. GINAR’s decentralized solutions leverage the Blockchain technology to bring transparency in the generation process to everyone. Every step in the generation process is recorded and then related data is published in the blockchains. With this information, everyone can easily check if there is any manipulation happening during the generation process.
In order to verify a random number generated by GINAR, a client has to perform 3 steps:
- Step 1: Verify the correctness of the ticket
- Step 2: Verify the validity of each PoD
- Step 3: Check the correctness
- Step 1: Copy your ticket ID and paste to verification windows
- Step 2: Click “Search” to verify your ticket ID. Next, the verified result will show up
If the random number is incorrect, the tool will notify - Invalid Result
If the random number is correct, the tool will notify – Valid Result. To understand the verification in detail, you click to View Results.
The detail results from valid random number will be listed with Block Information, Json Data and List of PODs (Proof of Designations)
