The article looks at the future of Smart Home and how innovations in Secure Hardware, Decentralized ID, IoT Standardization, and Secure Encrypted Communications will address the security and privacy vulnerabilities in the next generation of Smart Home Solutions.
App-Centric Virtual Networks & NKN
What is an App-Centric Virtual Network? App-Centric Virtual networks enable the next generation of highly connected devices by creating and deploying network technologies that ensure good performance in an uncoordinated open internet. In the white paper, “App-Centric Virtual Network | NKN”, we take a deep dive into what companies like Aryaka, Haste, and Palo Alto Networks are doing to create App-Centric Virtual networks across industries such as SD-WAN, Gaming, and Security/SASE respectively. These are the perfect use cases that NKN can provide unique value.
A good way to get started is with the free and open source SDK from NKN, which offers developers a performance optimized virtual network service for true peer to peer messaging, streaming, and file transfer.
