TruthSayer: The Authentic Publication Project

Interesting project where they're trying to reduce the
need for secure systems by separating the owner and
publishing components.

"With a few trusted digital signatures on the
part of the owner, an untrusted publisher can
use techniques based on Merkle hash trees, to
provide authenticity and non-repudiation of
the answer to a database query."

Oriented towards large, in-frequently updated databases.
