It’s difficult to remember but the protocols that power the internet are old. These programs layers like https and DNS were never designed to shoulder the heavy traffic and data processing being hoisted upon them. Even with layer 2 and 3 solutions, the backbone of the internet is starting to show its age. Sentivate is a project designed to replace these old standards with new ones. We will explore a few of these below.
In modern business, internet delays are unacceptable. Amazon and Google have both discovered that extra milliseconds in latency can cost them millions of dollars. It is for these reasons and more that Sentivate is needed more than ever.
There are three main components to Sentivate’s rollout. It gets a bit technical but we’ll go slowly.
Universal Identity System
This new identity system removes the need to create a user login and password. Instead, it acts as a kind of internet passport for individual users. By encrypting credentials they are kept secure. Creating this functionality at a base level ensures that this will be very difficult to compromise.
This system filters out various attacks on websites like Sybill attacks and faulty certificates. Sybill attacks are used to force a network to execute unwanted commands, potentially causing a disruption in service. These kinds of attacks can also be used to inject malware into websites that can infect user computers.
Bringing these concepts together are identity certificates. These identify the user Sentivate’s blockchain technology. The main benefit is this allows different permissions to be created per device. An example could be that a user’s home computer would be authorized to make Amazon purchases but not a work laptop. In this way, if the laptop is lost or stolen, it would not be able to be used to make purchases on your behalf.
Powering this new infrastructure is the Sentivate token (SNTVT). Token holders are able to gain access to early models of the system and voting rights. Specific access includes browsers, server modules, client modules, Identity certificates, Domain certificates, and various other applications.
Once the network is up and running, the SNTVT tokens will be replaced with the Viat token. It will be mineable two ways, through proof of work and passive mining is done while browsing the web. It will be similar to receiving rewards from the Brave Browser, but without seeing ads. Viat will be integral in working with this new web standard.
Progress in 2020
Far from sitting on their hands during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sentivate team has been quite busy. The newest reveal is that Sentivate will be rebranding as “Universal Web” in order to better identify with its mission. From the technical side, the developers are addressing the bandwidth shortage that was exposed in light of the coronavirus. As more people are working from home and streaming video more, the current infrastructure is showing its cracks sooner than expected. Sentivate, or Universal Web, is quickly addressing to fix this problem.
