Features to preserve and protect your trust documents forever.

Trusted Person Alerts

Trusted Person Alerts™

Trusted Person Alerts™ are the cornerstone of your Illuminote protection. As we begin to register your trust on DARCI, we ask that you assign Trusted Persons to be notified anytime there is a change to your trust–think about it as four or five extra pairs of eyes watching your trust documents. This adds a protective layer against anyone looking to commit fraud or undue influence once they see it is registered on DARCI and watched over by all your Trusted Persons. Like Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis observed, “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.”

8-digit DARCI Number

Your trust will be assigned a unique 8-digit DARCI Number. Like a license plate verifies your car’s registration and ties its ownership to you, titling assets using your DARCI Number puts the world on notice that your trust is registered on DARCI and provides those with whom your trustee does business, a way to verify trusteeship.

User Mitigation

16-digit Illuminote Document Number (IDN)

Each individual document is assigned a 16-digit Illuminote Document Number (IDN). If a DARCI Number is like a license plate, think of an IDN like a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). An IDN is unique to each document that is Illuminotarized and can be used to instantly validate the Illuminotarization.

2-Step Authentication

2-Factor Authentication

Throughout the registration process, Illuminote uses two-factor authentication to ensure that you are in control every step of the way. But on a deeper level, Illuminote itself is a form of 2-factor authentication. Are you unsure if this notary stamp is authentic? With an IDN, you will know. Is someone new claiming to be the trustee of a trust? With a DARCI number, you can check. Want to make sure that the papers purporting to be the trust are, in fact, the trust, the whole trust, and nothing but the trust? With DARCI, you will be sure.

Digital Notirization


An Illuminotary is a notary public duly licensed by the State of California with further accreditations from Illuminote to provide a heightened level of service and record keeping.

When an Illuminotary notarizes your document, you are no longer reliant on just a rubber stamp as the Illuminote Document Number (IDN) now validates the notarization. The Illuminotary memorializes additional objective facts relevant to the document’s execution, such as where it took place, who was present, and who paid for it, thereby preserving valuable evidence regarding the execution. And, when uploading your documents to DARCI, your Illuminotary will apply both ink and digital certificates within one chain of custody, bridging the gap between the analog and the digital, empowering Illuminote to provide your documents with the digital security and authentication that they deserve.
