How to use Bernstein certificates in NDAs
Berstein certificates can be used to enhance non-disclosure contracts with new employees.
Before sharing any information, the employer creates a new empty project and invites the employee to join the project. A first certificate should then be created for this empty folder.
Instead of broadly describing the content of sensitive information that will be shared with the employee, the NDA references the created certificate as well as all future certificates linked to this first one, precisely delimitating the scope of the agreement.
Once the NDA is signed, every time a secret document is added to the folder, a new certificate should be issued, creating a chain of linked certificate effectively proving the employee had access to that particular information at the time of the certificate issuance, while keeping the content of the agreement confidential!
