Fortanix now allows you to automatically configure Launchnodes’ Cosmos and Tendermint nodes for use with Fortanix Signer. Distributes nodes across public cloud (AWS & GCP) and bare metal (Equinix and Vultr) globally, whilst securing it to a FIPS accredited standard.
Cosmos and Tendermint blockchains today are centralised both in terms of
- The capital for staking on these chains being controlled by a small number of people/organisations.
- The infrastructure that the nodes for these networks run on being extremely centralised.
Nodes on Multiple Clouds and Bare Metal
This service provides Cosmos and Tendermint nodes that are automatically configured by Launchnodes to use Fortanix One Time Signer. These nodes can be used for solo staking or as RPC nodes, either on premise or on public cloud (AWS) and are engineered to integrate seamlessly with Fortanix’ One Time Signer solution. Learn more about Fortanix One Time Signer. With this solution customers benefit from scaling their blockchain across multiple pre-configured nodes, distributed across multiple geographies
- Providing greater credibility for their chain.
- Decentralizing both geography and infrastructure, further enhancing the credibility of blockchain operations.
The service includes:
- Full installation support for all your nodes
- Node synchronisation
- Node software updates and maintenance
- Uptime support
- Email support
- Zoom support
- Node resilience plan to meet your organisation’s availability requirements
High security environment
The private keys are kept secured at rest, in motion and even when in use inside Intel® SGX enclaves. FIPS 140-2 level 3 certified HSM delivers enhanced physical security.
Seamless integration with One-time signer
The service is engineered to integrate seamlessly with Fortanix’ One Time Signer solution. One-Time Signer offers double-sign prevention logic implemented as a Fortanix Data Security Manager plugin for blockchain validator nodes.
How it helps?
Decentralise Blockchain operations
Systemically decentralising the blockchain by meaningful diversification for the nodes.
Avoid double signing
The solution provides state tracking signers that are specifically designed to prevent double signing.
Eliminate a single point of failure.
Distributing nodes (that connect to a distributed signer) across cloud and bare metal, (vendor and geography can be chosen by the client) reducing the risk of a single point of failure for staking operations.
High speed with lowest latency
Solution enables blockchains to operate at the highest speeds and lowest latencies, regardless of the location of client endpoints and users of the token - through a global network.
