The Hyperledger Project
The Hyperledger Project is a collaborative project initiated under the aegis of the Linux Foundation in 2015 to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. Contributors to the project include some of the top names in different sectors including aeronautics, fintech, healthcare, payment processing, manufacturing and IT. Different components of the Project including Fabric, Sawtooth Lake, Iroha, Indy and Burrow.
Hyperledger Fabric is an open source blockchain platform best suited for enterprise-level applications. Fabric, initially a project from IBM, is a permissioned Distributed Ledger Technology, that is highly scalable and secure. It supports private channels, pluggable consensus engines, and provides an innovative “Execute-Order-Commit” cycle that is different from conventional blockchains.
iWitness Blockchain-based Virtual Notary to Enhance Transparency in Enterprise
iWitness, an enterprise virtual system is InApp’s first product on the Blockchain platform. Operating as an Android app, iWitness allows users in an Enterprise ecosystem to store any kind of information artifact such as images, documents, videos, audio recordings, together with metadata such as name, description, hashtags, location and multiple timestamps. The “digital fingerprint” of the artifact, together with the metadata is stored on the blockchain, while the artifact itself is stored off-chain. Once stored this way, the data is immutable, and any unauthorized changes (external intrusion or internal misuse) in the off-chain data is detected by the system, thus providing an immutable and un-tamperable storage.
