Hashing It Out #76- Namebase.io Tieshun Roquerre
ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Handshake is a decentralized, permissionless naming protocol where every peer is validating and in charge of managing the root DNS naming zone with the goal of creating an alternative to existing Certificate Authorities and naming systems. Names on the internet (top level domains, social networking handles, etc.) ultimately rely upon centralized actors with full control over a system which are relied upon to be honest, as they are vulnerable to hacking, censorship, and corruption. Handshake aims to experiment with new ways the internet can be more secure, resilient, and socially useful with a peer-to-peer system validated by the network’s participants.

In this episode, we dive into NuCypher. NuCypher is an encryption library for managing key access on decentralized networks. We talk about proxy re-encryption, how access is granted, and the creation of their node network. We also discuss the topic of fully homomorphic encryption and the role of privacy in future decentralized applications.

TrueBit is one of the more impressive decentralized projects, and we're really excited to have had the chance to interview Harley Swick, core developer on the project. We talk to him about TrueBit, how it works, it's significance, how it differentiates itself from other off-chain computation projects. We go over some of the many, many applications of decentralized off-chain computation projects and how they can improve world resource utilization. Amazing and really exciting stuff!

The prodigious Rick Dudley talks with us about his work as a consensus subject matter expert. He lends us his experience and wisdom in consulting for the creation of Byzantine Fault Tolerant systems. We also delve into what it takes to build a completely decentralized public data storage system and why it's such a difficult problem.

We talk with Mahnush Movahedi of DFINITY to explain the fundamental innovation behind DFINITY's consensus system. She explains how threshold relay works, how groups are determined in consensus, and how cryptographic deterministic randomness drive consensus as a fast and light-weight substitute for Proof of Work. We learn about how this impacts the architecture for state and network protocol design. This episode really shows why Mahnush, a PhD Yale postdoctoral computer scientist with a focus on multiparty computation, would choose DFINITY as the project to join to innovate on consensus protocols.
