R3 uses Intel’s latest Xeon processor to improve DLT security


nnnIn the past, Intel has introduced the latest Xeon scalable processor, and announced that the hardware will be applied to the R3 Corda platform, to further expand cooperation with the Union. R3 has also made a high degree of evaluation of this initiative, pointing out that the hardware is particularly suitable for its members who are subject to strict supervision. R3 engineer Mike Hearn called it more widely used, but also for the digital money field to solve some problems.n

nR3 is expanding its cooperation with the computer giant Intel, for their own distributed books platform to bring a new hardware security.n
nOn July 11th, Intel held an unveiling ceremony for Xeon’s scalable processor in New York and announced that it would apply hardware protection to R3’s open source distributed book platform, Corda.n
nIntel’s new Xeon Scalable processor is designed to enable any severely regulated company to have the security of running its products using cloud computing, and R3’s chief platform engineer said the hardware is particularly suitable for use by 80 members of its alliance.n
nBy integrating Xeon into Corda, R3 members will be able to take advantage of a shared distributed book, without fear of being suppressed by regulators for failing to protect user privacy.n
nR3 chief platform engineer Mike Hearn told CoinDesk:n
nn”It allows people to send a chain of custody to each other to prove that the current state of an asset or book has an effective record history, however, the other party can not actually read the record, can only be processed to verify whether it is valid, The rules. “n
nnAccording to the statement, Intel’s latest Xeon scalable processor can store up to 28 companies of high-performance core, the transaction can be supported per second is 5 times the previous solution.n
nIn general, this initiative marks a continuation of the early work of Hearn’s white paper last year. Hearn is well known as the former core developer of the open source premium currency project.n
nInitially, Corda’s work focused on Intel’s Software Protection Extensions (SGX) – designed to provide higher security than software. But Hearn said that with the release of Xeon processors, R3 members who are under strict supervision can more easily get the required cloud security.n
nRick Echevarria, vice president of Intel’s software and services division, said the processor is likely to improve the security of some distributed book solutions.n
n”R3’s approach and the Corda platform make R3 a special place,” he said in a statement. “It’s going to revolutionize the infrastructure of the next-generation financial services market.”n
nHearn also agrees with the skeptical view that centralized hardware should be integrated into a decentralized infrastructure (such as a block chain), but it is also in favor of some software that is not available.n
nHearn even extended the possible use of security hardware to the field of digital money he had left, he concluded:n
nn”There are a lot of applications in the whole digital money field, and it is a very interesting and powerful tool that can help people solve problems that have been studied by mathematical knowledge for many years.”n
