Security OS

Devv.io

Devvio’s Security OS delivers best in class security benefits, solving
the major problems facing cybersecurity professionals today. For over
three decades, Byzantine fault tolerance (BFT) has become the gold
standard for security in distributed systems. As the name suggest,
Byzantine fault tolerance means that a system can tolerate (i.e. still
achieve consensus in the presence of) Byzantine faults – the category
of faults where nodes may be malicious. In effect, this means that
there is no central point of failure, and even if a number of servers in
a network are compromised, the system as a whole maintains its
integrity and security. Devvio enables the deployment of a Byzantine
Fault Tolerant security backbone across the entire communications
and IoT network providing security solutions that enable identity,
authentication, resiliency, the reliability of information, and surety of
access to communication networks and digitized assets.

Devvio – Enabling the Security of Communications and IoT Networks

One of the largest challenges in the entire Communications and IoT
space is security. There are gaping security holes right now across
many Communications and IoT implementations. With Devvio’s
highly scalable and inexpensive solution, the innate security and
immutability of blockchain can now be applied to Communications
and IoT to provide security. Enterprises and Governments must
protect their data, contracts, files, devices and networks, but also
maintain privacy, authenticate identity, prevent theft/spoofing, and
develop governance for Communications and IoT device control and
coordination. These requirements are necessary whether in a large-
scale factory environment, a remote field operation with low bandwidth for connectivity, or within a smart home or retail context.
Additionally, blockchain innately provides a solution in which no
central authority oversees the verification of transactions. Instead,
transactions are cryptographically secured and then are validated
through an independent consensus algorithm. This is important as it
provides a trustless solution in which many different companies or
partners can all work together on the same platform, share the same
data structures, and coordinate across a wide variety of technical
implementations, while still maintaining privacy. Blockchain has not
been able to be effectively applied to Communications or IoT use
cases because of cost and throughput requirements, but Devvio's
solution, for the first time, gives a practical solution to using
blockchain at the scale required for real-world global deployment.
Devvio has built a large patent IP portfolio around the security
capabilities and enabling technology in this space.

Ensuring Hardware Security throughout the Communications Value Chain

Devvio’s technology and patents enable a combination of both
hardware and software security validation that assures hardware
assets have not been counterfeited or tampered with at the chip
level. Devvio’s technology ensures that hardware private keys cannot
be copied in the manufacturing process and that they have not been
duplicated or reverse engineered outside of the manufacturing
process. This ensures that a chip’s identity cannot be compromised.
This protection moves up the value chain providing the same
assurances at the module, device, system and network level providing
a communications security platform that includes not only the data
and information integrity but also the identity and integrity of the end
points at the edge of the network.

Devvio Immutability


Devvio’s ability to create a blockchain ledger that will remain a
permanent, indelible, and unalterable history of transactions is a
definitive feature that is a key benefit for security systems.
Additionally, Devvio’s immutable records are distributed and held
across multiple computers. Companies and Governments spend trillions of dollars on cybersecurity solutions meant to keep outside prying eyes from
accessing sensitive data. But rarely do they adequately ensure that
data has not been manipulated, replaced, or falsified by a company,
government, employees, or intruders. In many cases, we have come
to simply trust that the data is correct given user permissions. In
reality, however, we cannot prove — methodically or mathematically — that information in a standard application database has not been tampered with. Additionally, cybersecurity attackers can often hide their tracks and many cybersecurity attacks lead to ransoms in order to restore a hijacked system.
Devvio’s blockchain implementation brings an unprecedented level of
trust and disaster recovery to the data enterprises use on a daily
basis — immutability and decentralization provide full data integrity
and disaster recovery. With blockchain, Communication and IoT
networks can prove to their stakeholders that the information they
present and use has not been tampered with, while simultaneously
transforming the audit process into an efficient, sensible, and cost-
effective procedure.

Devvio Best-in-Class Scale


One of the top technical challenges facing Blockchain technology
deployment is the ability to scale and do so at an effective price point
while maintaining security. These requirements are foundational to
running secured networks in mission-critical, high-risk and high data
volume (sometimes low-bandwidth) environments. Devvio has solved
the sharding problem, enabling horizontal scaling and therefore a
solution for scaling challenges.

Devvio Interoperability


The ability to securely and reliably interconnect multiple networks is a
challenge in the Communications and IoT realm. Although blockchain
is not innately a data integration tool, distributed ledgers are
inherently designed to offer shared visibility of data. Thus, Devvio’s
blockchain technology provides for new levels of interoperability.
Devvio enables seamless interoperability solutions, easily integrating
existing traditional databases with our blockchain platform. Devvio’s
solution provides a backbone to support connection and cooperation
across established technologies, with quick onboarding of traditional
data and intuitive integration with existing processes using tools such
as our RESTful API.

Multiparty Collaboration


While interoperability is typically viewed as a technical or standards
hurdle between data sets, devices, networks, etc., it is also a deeply
ingrained cultural hurdle. Traditional business instinct is competitive,
proprietary and walled off, and is not interdependent or shared. This
friction has challenged the current Communications or IoT market as
traditional product-based business models are being forced to data-
driven service-based business models, which inherently require an
ecosystem to deliver. The level of collaboration required for the
successful and sustainable deployment of modern communication
networks is significant. The range of interactions between previously
disparate parties will continue to grow. Devvio protects these disparate parties. Blockchain will not only allow all participants to
come together but will also provide for integrations with new laws,
rules, liability frameworks, standards, and processes. Like
Communications and IoT, the potential value of any blockchain
configuration is a function of the “network effect” where the number
of participants is a large part of the value of the network as a whole.
Devvio’s technology enables a multiparty system that will represent a
core catalyst for future Communications and IoT business models.
Devvio’s technology allows broader ecosystems and solves some of
the most pressing issues for the future of Communications and IoT
networks.

Regulatory Compliance


Devvio’s Security OS has regulatory and compliance mechanisms that
can be implemented and automated to ensure requirements are met
and recorded on an immutable ledger both inside and across
jurisdictional boundaries. A highly secure and immutable record of all
transactions, where all participants’ interactions are cryptographically
secured, provides an ideal system for auditing and compliance.
Devvio’s Security OS also works within important regulatory contexts
including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR),
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), and
numerous breach notification laws. Various organizations such as the
Center for Internet Security (CIS) and U.S. Department of Defense
also have recommendations for security configuration best practices
in which Devvio’s technology enables compliance. The importance of
flexible security controls cannot be overstated as new regulations are
being released and existing regulations are constantly evolving
around the most valuable asset of many organizations – their data.

Identity and Access Management


With Devvio’s identity solution users are in control of the use of their
identity, and entities that rely on these identity representations can
be assured, through a highly secure system, that third party verifiers
have verified an identity. In Devvio’s paradigm, it is the control of
identity information, rather than the information itself, that becomes
important, which is the future of identity across the globe. This
Devvio identity is then the foundation for providing Access
Management (AM) capabilities. Devvio AM enables the process of
identifying, tracking, controlling and managing authorized or specified
users' access to a location, system, application, or any IT instance or
physical structure. It is a broad concept that encompasses all policies,
processes, methodologies and tools to maintain access privileges
within an IT and physical environment.
