A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11902438B2) outlines a method for verifying media objects sent via a telecommunication network. The method involves generating private and public keys for the sending entity, encrypting a hash value associated with the media object, accessing a Decentralized Identity (DID) associated with the sending entity, resolving the DID to retrieve the public key, decrypting the hash value, computing a second hash value, and comparing the two values to verify the media object. Upon successful verification, the media object is routed to the intended recipient. The patent also details additional steps for verifying media objects originating from enterprises, involving the use of blockchain technology to register DIDs, decrypt hash values, and trigger monetary fund distributions to media object aggregators or mobile network operators.

Furthermore, the patent describes a comprehensive process for verifying various types of media objects, including SMS, MMS, RCS, voice services, and more. It emphasizes the use of DIDs specific to relationships between entities and the registration of transaction records with blockchain technology. The method also includes protocols for distributing monetary funds to relevant parties post-verification and posting corresponding messages on the blockchain. Overall, the patent presents a detailed framework for ensuring the authenticity and integrity of media objects transmitted through telecommunication networks, highlighting the importance of secure verification processes in the digital communication landscape.
