Marconi, the creator of a networking and blockchain protocol using programmable packets, announced on Wednesday it has entered into a strategic blockchain partnership with Cryptic Labs, a blockchain advisory and research company. Marconi reported that the Marconi Protocol uses a unique programmable packet design to build decentralized networking and security apps that can replace what is typically done by expensive hardware equipment.
“The team at Marconi has developed a platform that protects online activity and privacy which is becoming more essential every day. The Marconi Protocol enables anyone to quickly and easily spin up their secure gateway which essentially acts like a VPN. Peers can now establish secure connections between all nodes in a network so traffic is securely transported.”
Jong Kim, Chief Architect for Marconi, then commented:
“We are excited to be working with Cryptic Labs and to have Dr. Diffie, legend and pioneer in public key cryptography, join the Marconi advisory board. As the co-inventor of one of the fundamental security technologies that powers the entire blockchain ecosystem, his experience and expertise will be invaluable and we are honored to have him on our board.”
As part of the partnership, preeminent cryptographer and co-inventor of public key encryption, Dr. Whitfield Diffie, Cryptic’s Chief Scientist will add his presence to the Marconi technical advisory board.
