A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11966886B2) describes a system that implements an interbank information network architecture to provide a secure and decentralized network. The system includes an interbank information network utilizing a dedicated private third-party infrastructure hosted by a third-party hosting provider. This network establishes direct communication channels between multiple nodes, including an administrator node, first bank node, and second bank node. The first bank node comprises a client internal system, a first blockchain node supporting a permissioned shared ledger, and a private database containing transactional and personally identifiable information. Similarly, the second bank node includes a private database, a stager, and a second blockchain node to support the permissioned shared ledger. The system allows for secure communication, inquiry activities, and validation processes between the nodes, ensuring data integrity and privacy.

Furthermore, the system involves an administrator node that maintains a whitelist of authorized nodes, ensuring only approved participants can engage in the interbank information network. Each bank node is responsible for in-bank user access to node functions, enhancing security measures. The method also includes provisions for encrypted private messages, validation requests, and leveraging a network-wide fraudster list for verification purposes. Users associated with the first bank node can access the system via a web-based interface, facilitating seamless interaction with the interbank information network. Overall, the patented system offers a robust framework for secure and decentralized interbank communication, enabling efficient data exchange while maintaining stringent privacy and security protocols.
