arXiv:1405.0637, May 2018





A software-update framework that provides decentralized enforcement of development and release processes, independent verification of source-to-binary correspondence, transparency via a collectively-signed update timeline, and efficient release validation by arbitrarily out-of-date clients.

The Collective Authority (Cothority) Framework

Joint DeDiS project that offers a framework for simulating and deploying decentralized and distributed cryptographic protocols.


Lightweight DTLS implementation with the extension for secure group communication.
