1. A method of generating an attributed network for tracing transmitted data that is attributable to a user, the method comprising:
generating a digital registration certificate by packaging a biometric marker with a verified privity marker, the verified privity marker representing a human-witnessed affirmation of an identity of a user;
registering the digital registration certificate in a registry that comprises a block chain by generating an immutable entry in the block chain of the registry, with the generated immutable entry storing the digital registration certificate and representing initial registration of the digital registration certificate, with the immutable entry in the block chain storing the biometric marker and referencing the verified privity marker representing the human-witnessed affirmation of the identity of the user, and with retrieval of the digital registration certificate being required to access the attributed network;
receiving, from a client device, a request to access the attributed network, the request comprising biometric login data;
authenticating the user of the client device by verifying the biometric login data as matching the biometric marker included in the immutable entry in the registry;
responsive to authenticating, obtaining the digital registration certificate from the registry;
causing packaging, by a virtual browser configured for accessing the attributed network, of the digital registration certificate with user data generated by the user and specified by a client device of the user;
generating a new entry on the block chain in the registry, the new entry being linked to the immutable entry, the new entry indicating that the user data are attributed to the user by associating the user data with the privity marker representing the human-witnessed affirmation of the identity of the user;
following transmission of the user data packaged with the digital registration certificate by the virtual browser of the attributed network, receiving a request, from a device, to verify that the user data transmitted from the client device is attributable to the user, with the request including the digital registration certificate;
responsive to the request, retrieving, based on the digital registration certificate, the verified privity marker, representing the human-witnessed affirmation of the identity of the user, that is referenced by the new entry linked to the generated immutable entry; and
verifying, to the device, attribution of the verified privity marker to the user.
