COMING SOON

Upcoming Network Features

The following list represents network work that remains to be completed. The order should not be seen as fixed in any way as in certain cases, work will be carried out in parallel by different teams.

Feature

Description

Status

Secure Enclaves

A trusted executable environment within existing computers

Concept

Creates an area within the hardware of a computer that is a secure, trusted environment that stands separate from the rest of the computer. It functions like a mini-computer inside existing computers that cannot be opened.

Network Growth

Allow the network to grow and scale in a sustainable way

Concept

The Network allows controlled growth to ensure that the majority of decision-makers are healthy nodes that follow the rules of the Network. This growth should be sustainable in order to avoid unnecessary mergers between Sections.

Network Restarts

Ability for the network to restart after a catastrophe

Concept

In the event of a catastrophic outage, the Network should be able to rebuild itself because it maintains the integrity of essential data (such as chain history) which enables it to start functioning again on the basis of the last known state of the Network.

RDF Support

The Network will have native support for RDF, enabling data to be compatible with the Semantic Web

RFC

Ensures that data on the SAFE Network is stored in such a way that the format can be understood by other Semantic Web projects, such as Solid.

Obfuscating stored data

All data stored within a Vault on an individual’s computer must be entirely encrypted and unreadable

Concept

Ensures that even the smallest piece of data that is stored in a Vault cannot be read by the person controlling the computer on which it is stored.

Common Coin

Replace our concrete coin with a common coin to make PARSEC fully asynchronous

Design

Common coin is a device that nodes can use to generate a “random” binary value (true or false). Every time a node flips the coin, all other nodes are guaranteed to observe the same value for their coin flip. Also, the value must be unpredictable, which means that no malicious node can know the outcome before a honest node has observed it.

Apps and User Experience

LATEST VERSION V0.15.2

SAFE Browser

The latest release includes some of the beginnings of the Perpetual Web, as well as the Authenticator: enabling you to securely sign in to the SAFE Network, and manage access and permissions of SAFE Apps.

CURRENT MILESTONE

The Perpetual Web

The SAFE Network is designed to ensure that public data is permanent and can never be deleted. Individuals and groups can choose to keep their data private, but once it’s been published, it will remain permanently available. This milestone aims to showcase the incredible power of this facet of the Network, by building out the User Experience, and iterating on it right through to launch.

Milestone Features

Description

Status

SAFE Browser

Enhancements to the browser designed specifically to take advantage of the functionalities of the Perpetual Web

Development

The SAFE Browser functionality will be extended to incorporate new features that are unique to the Perpetual Web, such as the ability to roll-back through the version history of any SAFE website or asset.

Mobile Browser

Mobile version of SAFE browser which is limited to browsing published data from the SAFE Network

Complete

Enables individuals to access the SAFE Network directly by using a browser on their mobile phone

Data Manager

Streamlined publishing of SAFE sites and Perpetual Data

Development

A suite of tools which provides the necessary functionality to add data to the SAFE Network, publish perpetual data, and manage Public Names. This will supersede the Web Hosting Manager.

SAFE CLI

An advanced CLI to manage accounts and data

Development

A command line tool to manage data on the SAFE Network. It will allow the user to store data on the network and manage accounts, identities, and permissions. This is the tool that the frontend apps and features—such as the Data Manager—will build upon.

Public Name System

Content stored should be accessible with human-readable URLs, via a decentralised domain name system: the Public Name System

RFC

A domain name system translates numerical IP addresses into a format that can be read by humans (eg. http//216.58.206.35 resolves to Google.com). The current web relies on a centralised organisation to maintain that record. The SAFE Network requires this process to be outside the control of a single party in order to avoid censorship and repression.

UPCOMING MILESTONES

Private Communications

If we want a world in which individuals can communicate freely whenever they choose, privacy is essential. This milestone aims to deliver just that.

Milestone Features

Description

Status

Private Messaging

Send secure private messages between clients

Concept

One of the most sought after features of the SAFE Network: secure, private, instant messaging.

Identity Management

Ability for users to create and manage multiple identities

Concept

Improves the user experience for individuals as they switch between the identities (or profiles) that they choose to represent themselves with on the SAFE Network, without the need to create multiple accounts.

Contacts Management

Find, connect and stay up-to-date with other SAFE Network users

Concept

Enables SAFE users to find and connect with other people across a range of applications in a consistent way.

Take Control of Your Data

The SAFE Network turns the current data ownership model on its head. Personal information will no longer be stored on corporate servers. Self Authentication gives you complete control over your data. You can grant (and revoke) permission for apps to use your data at any time and prevent any unauthorised company or third party ever gaining access.

Milestone Features

Description

Status

Data Manager

Fine-grained management of your personal data

Concept

The extension of the Data Manager tool to allow fine-grained control by individuals over their private and unpublished data.

RDF Support

Support storing and querying RDF resources in SAFE-Core

RFC

Ensures that the SAFE Network understands a way of describing the architecture of data that is understood by other projects, such as Solid

Read the RFC

SPARQL Support

Add native support for SPARQL to allow searching of data

Concept

Enhances the functionality of SAFE by adding SPARQL support to SAFE Client Libs and SAFE Vault. This ensures that the Network can understand a well-known semantic query language, and enables users to search.

Collaboration

Tools to enable collaboration through sharing and group permissions on private unpublished data

Concept

Manage sharing and permissions of private, unpublised data and files, for collaboration between individuals and groups.

XOR URLs

A way of sharing and accessing SAFE Network files without the need for a Public Name

Complete

Create a system of standardised URL’s on the SAFE Network that are based on the XOR address of the content being referenced. Ensures that individuals can access and locate data and files in a more user-friendly manner.

The New Digital Economy

The new digital economy is all about ensuring that you no longer pay for your digital life with data. Instead, you use a cryptocurrency that’s integral and distributed by the SAFE Network. You earn value in return for providing resources to the Network.

Milestone Features

Description

Status

Test Safecoin Wallet

Transact using Test Safecoins

Development

Users will be able to use Test Safecoin in the Network, allowing an ecosystem to built around the SAFE incentive mechanism. The ability to create multiple wallets, associate them with an identity, and also one-time-use wallets to enable anonymous transactions, will all be part of this.

Vault User Interface

Easily set up, run, and manage a Vault

Concept

Users will see greatly-improved Vault User Experience. Anyone providing storage to the Network can expect to see a number of usability improvements, making it easy to offer resources and start farming on everyday home computers and devices.
