IPFS Decentralized Storage

We advocate using a globally distributed peer-to-peer data storage layer. Catenis uses the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) for storage. IPFS provides a high throughput content-addressed, block storage model and delivers many advantages over traditional storage solutions. With the addition of Catenis’ asymmetric encryption using perfect forward secrecy, content gets encrypted with the public key of the intended recipient so that only the intended recipient can decrypt it when it is delivered from the IPFS. Even if a malicious party did happen to retrieve the content from the IPFS they would not be able to decrypt it. Being a globally distributed storage layer, the IPFS protocol fits naturally with a decentralized blockchain ecosystem. However, Catenis is designed to be agnostic of the storage layer. Through a plugin framework, Catenis can be extended to support proprietary and centralized storage repositories. If you need to support a proprietary storage solution, please contact our professional services department at https://blockchainofthings.com/contact-us
