A foundation for decentralized interaction and exchange

At Filament, our core design principles are security, privacy, device autonomy, fully decentralized communication, and the free exchange of value.

Applying these principles to low-power devices and long-range communication makes the Filament technology stack the ideal solution for industrial IoT applications.

  • Security

    We use modern cryptographic protocols and defense in depth to help ensure that information is not disclosed to unauthorized entities and not modified in an unauthorized or accidental manner.

  • Privacy

    Our privacy-enhancing techniques (such as device communities) help to prevent attackers from learning information about device interactions.

  • Autonomy

    On Filament networks, devices are first-class citizens and can interact and exchange value without the involvement of a server or a connection to the cloud.

  • Decentralization

    Remote locations and private networks are straightforward with Filament technologies. Plus security and resilience are improved when devices do not require a server in order to communicate.

  • Exchange

    Value can be exchanged between devices in the form of data, network access, currencies such as Bitcoin, compute cycles, contracts for ongoing service, trusted introductions to other devices, and more.

  • Telehash

    Telehash is a technology for communication between trusted endpoints over any underlying data transport system, such as Internet connections or radio links, using advanced encryption and public key cryptography techniques to ensure the privacy and security of all data.

  • TMesh

    TMesh is a method for self-forming mesh networks over radio links; it provides encoding of communications data into radio parameters, shared management of available spectrum among any number of devices, and establishment of networking relationships among those devices.

  • Blockname

    Blockname is a technique for decentralized resolution of endpoint addresses in electronic communication using the Bitcoin blockchain and public notaries to verify the authenticity of name/address bindings.

  • Blocklet

    Blocklet is an electronic accounting system that builds upon the blockchain to provide autonomous, decentralized equivalents of traditional methods for commercial transactions, including contracts, agreements, receipts, and escrow arrangements.
