PKI, the system that we all have relied on to protect web traffic for over 30 years, is broken. The governance structures have failed, broken implementations and misuse are spread far beyond repair, and it's weaknesses are exploited through fraud and digital theft every day. Our Diode Chain™ software creates a new network designed for smart devices. The Diode Network is the first to implement unforgable proof-of-time and network-device authentication based on blockchain technology. Man-In-The middle attacks become impossible, and security dependencies on third parties are removed. The network has higher security than PKI with much lower overhead and maintenance needs. It is truly autonomous. Diode allows developers to build new IoT applications on top of the network, or to migrate existing workloads that take advantage of the higher security and lower operating costs.
The Diode Chain software uses unique blockchain authentication that allows devices to directly establish secure connectivity with the blockchain. After connecting, devices have full access to the data protected by the blockchain consensus. Man-In-The-Middle attacks through fake PKI certificates and DNS spoofing have no chance.
