How Intel Is Shaping Blockchain Technology

Blockchain – An Emerging Workload

Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that has the potential to transform the way enterprises, governments, and consumers exchange data. By eliminating the need for a central authority, blockchain technology simplifies transactions, mitigates transaction risk, and increases efficiency and transparency. Intel® processor technologies have unique capabilities that can improve the privacy, security, scalability, and trust across blockchain networks.1 2 3 Intel collaborates with customers, industry, and thought leaders to mature and optimize blockchain technologies, create and deploy open source solutions, accelerate adoption, and shorten the time to value for businesses.

Privacy

Data Protection from 3rd Parties

Keep transaction information isolated from other participants in the network.

Security

Secure Key Management

Help secure and obfuscate keys from malware.

Scalability

Efficient Block-Leader Election

Broad consensus across a blockchain with a large collection of participants.

Trust

Remote Attestation

Help authorize off-chain participants like oracles and sensors.

Improving Blockchain Through Technology Innovation

Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) delivers enhanced privacy and security that can help protect blockchain transactions, and help improve throughput and consensus efficiency. For enhanced performance and efficiency of cryptographic hashing and blockchain security, solution builders and developers can take advantage of security technologies like Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) and Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) that are built into Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors making them an ideal foundation.1 2 3

Informações de produto e desempenho

1

Os recursos e benefícios das tecnologias Intel® dependem da configuração do sistema e podem requerer hardware habilitado, software específico ou ativação de serviços. O desempenho varia dependendo da configuração do sistema. Nenhum sistema de computador é totalmente seguro. Verifique com o fabricante ou revendedor do seu sistema ou saiba mais em www.intel.com.br.

2

Os resultados de desempenho se baseiam em testes realizados a partir da data especificada nas configurações e podem não incluir todas as atualizações de segurança disponíveis publicamente. Para obter detalhes, consulte a publicação da configuração. Nenhum produto ou componente pode ser totalmente seguro.

3

Talvez o software e as cargas de trabalho utilizados nos testes de desempenho tenham sido otimizados apenas para desempenho em microprocessadores Intel®. Testes de desempenho, como SYSmark* e MobileMark*, são medidos usando sistemas de computação, componentes, software, operações e funções específicos. Qualquer modificação em algum desses fatores pode provocar variação nos resultados. Consulte outras informações e outros testes de desempenho para ajudá-lo a avaliar melhor as suas compras, incluindo o desempenho desse produto quando combinado com outros produtos.
