Challenges faced by the cybersecurity industry

Single entry points
Single entry points

Large amounts of data located in a single database are a particularly valuable asset and relatively easy prey for hackers, seeking to gain control of systems by hacking or social engineering.

IoT vulnerability
IoT vulnerability

With the growing number of IoT data thefts and breaches, 93% of customers are ready to make significant investments to get more advanced IoT security tools (as per Bain & Co).

DNS centralization
DNS centralization

DNS centralization accelerates networks but reduces the number of servers in use, leaving them vulnerable to DDoS and other DNS attacks and causing brand loyalty loss for businesses.

Insecure private messaging
Insecure private messaging

Many private messaging services are not private at all; when message contents are visible to service providers, companies can be in breach of regulatory data protection requirements.

Harmful updates
Harmful updates

The AV-TEST institute reports 350,000 new malware threats emerging every day, most of which are software updates and downloads.

DDoS attacks
DDoS attacks

According to Cox BLUE, for the last three years, the number of sophisticated DDoS attacks increased more than 2.5 times. In 2017, TechRepublic found that the number of DDoS hack attempts grew by 91%.

Passwords’ unreliability
Passwords’ unreliability

Yubico reports that 57% of US companies expressed concern about password-required logins, while individual users frequently use easily-broken passwords.

The security dilemma
The security dilemma

Organizations must choose between low-sensitivity security monitoring and over-responsive systems; many find themselves with both, relying on systems that block only half of threats, yet typically generate false-positive rates.

Intellectual property loss
Intellectual property loss

The Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property reports that IP losses cost US businesses up to $600bn annually, much of which can be attributed to technological vulnerability.

Blockchain solutions for cybersecurity from Aetsoft

Decentralized storage

Blockchain records immutable audit trails of every hardware asset back to its manufacturing and across the entire transportation process, guaranteeing complete provenance tracking.

Hardware authenticity

Blockchain records immutable audit trails of every hardware asset back to its manufacturing and across the entire transportation process, guaranteeing complete provenance tracking.

Decentralized DNS

Operate secure, encrypted and highly-decentralized DNS systems on failure-proof blockchain technology with safety ensured by self-executing immutable smart contracts and audit trails.

Digital identities

Instead of low-compliance, ineffective password protocols, blockchain offers more advanced protection tools, including private cryptographic keys, biometric data, and multisig authentication for each user.

Unified, secure communication

Blockchain provides a unified infrastructure for truly private and secure cross-messenger communications, where cryptographically-protected data access protocols are distributed among network participants.

Protected, automated IoT

Make decisions over IoT data usage in complete democracy, with all data constantly visible, via blockchain-based consensus algorithms. Automate activities between devices with self-executing smart contracts.

Distributed networks

Achieve load balancing with self-correcting blockchain networks that allow smart contract-facilitated bandwidth purchase and autonomously prevent overload and other consequences of DDoS attacks.

Verified downloads

Assign unique hashes to software instances, enabling instant reliable verification and reducing the risk of malware downloads.

Blockchain applications in cybersecurity

DNS servers

Use case 1. Decentralized DNS

Currently

Centralized DNS servers, though accelerate networks, make those vulnerable to DDoS and other attacks because of single access points to these networks.

With blockchain

Set up a distributed, blockchain-based DNS server, with connections to each related network cryptographically-protected.

Private messaging

Use case 2. Secure private messaging

Currently

Private messaging between users often turns out to be not private at all; when messages are visible to messenger providers, hacks might be inevitable.

With blockchain

Secure communication channels via blockchain encryption to make them truly private! No more unauthorized access; only sender and recipient are eligible to view their message history.

Hardware

Use case 3. Hardware authenticity

Currently

Often fragmentary nature of manufacturing records and inconsistent record-keeping in general leaves distributors and end customers unaware of the origins of individual hardware items — if not all of them.

With blockchain

Provide consistency and transparency across your manufacturing records by keeping those in a universal blockchain database, immutable and forgery-proof.
