The Diode Network allows any system on the planet to serve secured content using public Internet without relying on centralized platforms. We're ending the monopoly of datacenter servers, big tech applications, the need for static IP addresses, and the dangerious reliance on decades old, broken, PKI technologies.
The Diode Network is a global server network operated by Diode and others around the world. These servers all run our open source software that run Smart Contracts which remove the need for custom IT administration.
People and systems can communicate directly with each other by using the Diode Network. Systems of all levels of capability (computers, phone, IoT sensor) can exchange information without relying on big tech software applications or infrastructure. Communications through the Diode Network are 256bit end to end encrypted, and the network handles addressing and routing.
Every user on the Diode Network interacts using a Client Identifier. Each user can have one or more Client Identifiers, and there is no personal identification or pre-shared trust required for a user to establish a Client Identifier. Every Client's identity is also used for the routing of communications so the terms “Address” and “Identity” are often used interchangeably.
