Proposal number: F4Fp-SME-COD210330-01
SUMMARY REMARKS & TESTBEDS
SmartChain is the future of distributed networks that can cover multiple domains in an enterprise setup. Each distributed network will be a self-contained ecosystem that can be adaptive to growth based on customer requirements. The system will be hybrid centralized and at the same time decentralized similar to public and private clouds. In Shoptaki, security is a priority and transactions must be both secure and fast. With the growing demand of quantum technology, quantum VPN will be used to mask the IP and encrypt transmission. In order to compensate for latency, the QUIC protocol is used as a user space transport with UDP as a substrate. QUIC uses a cryptographic handshake that minimizes handshake latency and eliminates head of line blocking delays by lightweight data structuring abstraction. The Shoptaki master ecosystem will be built using standard security validated best practices. SmartChain is designed as an automation system capable of smartly linking together systems, data sources or capabilities without requiring the end-user manually specifying.
