We spoke with Steven Sprague about why he became an advisor for Syncfab. Steven is an industry evangelist for the application of trusted computing technology. He is also the CEO and Cofounder of Rivetz
What is your background briefly?
I have spent 20 years helping to define and deploy trusted computing technology in the industry. Trusted Computing Group-defined technology has been deployed in billions of devices and provides the foundation for a built-in model for cybersecurity and assurance standards.
Does it seem like a logical background to what you do now?
Yes. At Rivetz, we are applying the embedded hardware security solutions to blockchain projects to assure that supply-chain integrity and device-identity attributes can be part of ongoing transactions on the blockchain.
1 min pitch for what you are doing now?
Rivetz is building the tools and services to provide a simpler and safer model for identity and integrity on blockchain and non-blockchain projects alike. We will enable verification of cybersecurity controls as part of any data recorded or consumed from a chain.
Why did you get involved with the SyncFab ICO?
The SyncFab project provides a fantastic foundation for the life cycle of the manufacturing process. The ability to integrate these integrity attributes into future transactions provides a new model for supply chain integrity and identity.

Why do you think it is such a powerful idea?
Customers are wrestling with quality and fraud and the simplification of supply chain integrity. SyncFab is the right entry point to enhance and simplify the manufacturing process and the acquisition process.
