How blockchain is providing the foundation for the next generation in cybersecurity

Blockchain as a means of securing data is being used by Barclays to secure fund transfers. Lockheed Martin, a massive US defense contractor, uses blockchain to implement cybersecurity protocol measures in engineering systems, supply chain risk management and software development. It speaks volumes that the security of some of the most dangerous weapons in the world can be trusted to blockchain.

Even the US government itself, recently conducted a report to analyze how blockchain could be used to better secure their network, having concluded 84% of all government agencies fail basic encryption standards.

How To Protect DeFi Assets From Hackers

There are numerous avenues that blockchain and DeFi platforms could take to bolster security measures.

Among the most obvious is extensive pre-launch testing, which would involve using a testnet for refining the code, rather than openly making it public from the get-go. The testnet would allow the project to conduct more rigorous trial runs using fake currencies and rely on a phased release of the platform to exclude the possibility of missed loopholes.

Raze Network Launches Protocol to Enable Confidential Payments for DeFi UsersRaze Network Launches Protocol to Enable Confidential Payments for DeFi Users

The new payment protocol is said to operate on the basis of private token minting from base tokens. The minting value ratio foreseen stands at 1:1 with zkSNARKs being crucial in maintaining anonymity. The latter is responsible for providing all of the required details and information for data parsing. The Zether framework is applied on the network for the second-layer decentralized anonymous payment module, as the Raze Network allows for three main constituent functions that users can resort to, namely – mint, transfer and redeem.
