Keep watch over all activity on a distributed ledger, including node processing and user endpoint communication. If suspicious activity is detected, SecureNode will notify and can even isolate the offending nodes or users.

SecureNode

Keep watch over all activity on a distributed ledger, including node processing and user endpoint communication. If suspicious activity is detected, SecureNode will notify and can even isolate the offending nodes or users. While standard DLT environments will have compromised consensus safeguards and will suffer from performance degradation, SBT’s SecureNode stops the problem in its tracks, and broadcasts the appropriate alerts.

 

Encryption

Add a layer of additional encryption / data protection to the values stored within the distributed ledger, to alleviate concerns about data sitting within nodes being susceptible to brute-force attacks, or to simply increase the difficulty to attack the data.

 

Authentication

Augment validating that end points participating in the distributed-ledger system are whom they claim to be.

Examples:

  • SecureNode’s Distributed Key Orchestration meets Cyber Security industry standard PKI (Public Key Infrastructure)
  • Tracking meta information about the end point to warn against login using a new IP, MAC address, & Operating System instance
  • Guard and lock out repeated erroneous or invalid authentication attempts
  • Integrate two-factor, biometric, or other additional authentication enhancements

 

User Management

Enhance end-user onboarding, communication, and maintenance to manage issues like:

  • Generate, protect, and allow the recovery of private-public key pairs
  • Gather and maintain profile information in separate metadata environment
  • APIs for DApps to use to provide customized interfaces with an end-user
