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
