The Connectivity Standards Alliance ignites creativity and collaboration in the Internet of Things by developing, evolving, and promoting universal open standards that enable all objects to securely connect and interact. The CSA created the Distributed Compliance Ledger (DCL), a secure, distributed network which allows IoT vendors, test houses and certification centers publish public information about a given device. The DCL is built on decentralized technologies, allowing information to be securely and independently validated.
DSR, a member of CSA, contributed to multiple components of the DCL, including the development of the underlying blockchain framework. To achieve the goals and stated benefits of the DCL, multiple complex components and features had to be implemented. These include a decentralized, immutable blockchain network, multiple node types and actions which run on the network and a series of consensus protocols and APIs.
DSR contributed to the development of Decentralized Compliance Ledger by leading in the design, development, and support of most components. DSR designed and built the underlying blockchain framework which makes the ledger decentralized and immutable. The ecosystem was built using Cosmos-SDK and Tendermint. The design of this network is meant to comply with Matter protocol. DSR continues to support the maintenance and enhancement of the DCL.
Open-source, immutable, blockchain framework based on Byzantine Fault Tolerant consensus protocol.
Command line interfaces and Web UI that can be used for interaction with the ledger
DevOps and infrastructure-as-a-code scripts
Performance and load testing
Open-source, Blockchain network development
Deployment and maintenance of persistent networks (Test Net and Main Net)
World-class testing and quality assurance
DSR designed, developed, tested and deployed the Decentralized Compliance Ledger and continues to serve as the primary maintainer and supporter of the code base. The decentralized nature of the DCL allows IoT vendors, test houses and certification centers to publish, verify and trust public information about a given device.
