Modern Internet is actually not a rapid flow of data, but a network of controlled nodes. Centralization and outdated protocols make it vulnerable and dangerous space to accommodate personal information. Current solutions of corporations and governments are only temporary measures and cannot fight with increasing problems. The output is complete decentralization and transition to blockchain. In the material we considered the need and essence of changes, ways to create a decentralized Internet and its advantages.
It is believed that no one manages the World Wide Web, and each user is an autonomous cell. In fact, the infrastructure of the existing Internet is not a stormy data stream, but a network of centrally controlled nodes. It is literally a dangerous place, vulnerable, and belongs to a small group of IT companies and hackers, who understand its mechanics and monetize most of the information.
Although questions are now beginning to raise questions about Internet monopolies, such as Yandex, Facebook, Google, but this is not a solution to the problem, since the real changes to the system are not made. In the network, everything is in the form of data, but we rarely think about who owns them, how they are stored and what happens to them when we share them. Typically, such facts come only in the process of loud scandals associated with the leakage or theft of personal information, which recently happen more often. The fact that we used to consider as of granted technological giants, are subsequently sold at a high price.
However, the problem is not that the data is transmitted to advertisers, but in their storage. Accommodation on central servers makes them enough easy prey for hackers. Public authorities also have access to information and control its stream. In fact, personal data cease to belong to users as soon as they enter the network. Situation
A really decentralized network involves the functioning of all services, such as websites, applications, social networks and others, without the participation of a third party. In the existing model of intermediaries for sites, centralized servers are performing, and for applications — outdated and vulnerable Internet protocols. This also applies to other network services. The entire amount of data actually controls a small group of companies.
In order to create an independent network, you will need to remove all intermediaries, transfer and distribute their functions between the participants, leaving only the server storage servers that will belong to individual users. In achieving this task, decentralized applications and a peer-to-peer network will help, which will follow traffic.
Despite the illusion of security, the user does not control its information. The reason for this is the high vulnerability of the Internet. The most significant problems today apply:
Regardless of the desire, users transmit their data to such giants as Yandex, Facebook, Google so that they could provide information protection. However, the fact of transmission itself does not guarantee absolute protection. Recently, large-scale leaks and theft of personal data occur increasingly. Because of such situations, Google recently announced the cessation of its social network.
The decentralized network will solve these problems, since the participants will independently determine who and how can access their personal data. It is possible for this it will be necessary to rewrite the infrastructure of the Internet from scratch.
The first step towards creating a decentralized network is the correction of existing Internet protocols that have been developed more than 40 years ago. Their vulnerability allows you to make kiberataks that are directed not only for people, but also to refuse to maintain. They affect large sections of the virtual world and even part of the physical infrastructure of the country. For decades, the decision was to take temporary measures, instead of creating a new model, where these vulnerabilities would be unavailable in principle.
The solution is the use of the DID blockchain system for the entire Internet. It provides for the provision of each participant a decentralized identifier, which by default checks the affiliation, and does not allow anyone without property rights to access data. In combination with the new infrastructure, the technology blockchain can provide absolute confidence in the Internet.
In order to decentralize data storage, a system will be required as a P2P logistics center. Each user will be able to have its own virtual disk or personal cloud computer, where you can post all your encrypted data. Using a reliable identification system on the blockchain, the network will be able to extract the necessary information, to combine it into the «digital capsule» and send it to the destination without an intermediary. When the data goes to the recipient’s virtual disk, the identifier is checked, and the package can be opened.
After the implementation of these two systems, a new era of the Internet will come, not only as
There are also advantages in centralized products, but users need a decentralized market option. Without cardinal changes, cyberatics and theft of data will continue, increasing in scale, and the corporations come to grow even faster.
