How Does Naoris Protocol Work?

Naoris Protocol: The Post-Quantum, Sub-Zero Blockchain Layer for CyberSecurity & Digital Trust in Web2 and Web3

Naoris Protocol's Post-Quantum Sub-Zero Blockchain Layer enhances the infrastructure across all blockchain layers, including L0, L1, L2, as well as DEXes, bridges, and validators in a positive-sum, non-competitive way for Web2 and Web3.

The DePIN (Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network) is fortified with post-quantum security, ensuring cyber-resilience and network health across both Web2 and Web3 ecosystems. Naoris introduces a new standard in transparency, trust, and security, preparing the entire blockchain stack for a post-quantum future.

Introduction: The Necessity of Decentralized Post-Quantum Cybersecurity in the Digital Age

In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, the importance of robust, adaptive, and future-proof cybersecurity measures cannot be overstated. As our reliance on technology continues to grow, so too does the frequency and sophistication of cyber threats. Traditional, centralized security solutions are no longer sufficient to protect against the ever-changing tactics employed by malicious actors, especially in light of the impending threat of quantum computing.

The current state of cybersecurity is characterized by a number of significant risks and challenges:

  1. Quantum Computing Risks: With the advent of quantum computing, many of the cryptographic algorithms used in current security systems will become vulnerable to attack. This poses a significant threat to the long-term security of sensitive data and infrastructure across both Web2 and Web3 ecosystems.

  2. Centralized Vulnerabilities: Centralized security systems often present single points of failure, making them vulnerable to targeted attacks. If an attacker successfully compromises a central authority, they can gain control over the entire network, leading to widespread damage and loss of trust.

  3. Lack of Transparency: Centralized systems often lack transparency, making it difficult for users to verify the integrity of the security measures in place. This lack of transparency can erode trust and leave users uncertain about the safety of their data.

  4. Slow Response Times: In a centralized system, the detection and response to security threats can be slow, as all data must be processed and analyzed by a single entity. This delay can allow attackers to cause significant damage before they are detected and stopped.

  5. Scalability Limitations: As the number of connected devices continues to grow, centralized security solutions may struggle to keep pace. The sheer volume of data generated by these devices can overwhelm traditional security architectures, leading to performance issues and increased vulnerability.

To address these challenges and ensure the security of our digital future, a new approach to cybersecurity is needed. This is where the concept of decentralized post-quantum cybersecurity, as exemplified by Naoris Protocol, comes into play.

Decentralized post-quantum cybersecurity offers a paradigm shift in how we approach the protection of our digital assets and infrastructure. By distributing the responsibility for security across a network of nodes and employing advanced cryptographic techniques like post-quantum algorithms, decentralized systems eliminate single points of failure and ensure that the compromise of any one node does not jeopardize the entire network.

Furthermore, decentralized systems provide unprecedented levels of transparency, allowing users to verify the integrity of the security measures in place. This transparency helps to build trust and ensures that all participants can hold each other accountable for maintaining the security of the network.

The use of advanced technologies, such as blockchain, post-quantum cryptography, and Swarm AI, enables decentralized cybersecurity solutions to scale effectively and remain secure in the face of emerging threats. By harnessing the power of collective intelligence and adapting in real-time to new challenges, decentralized systems offer a level of resilience and adaptability that is simply not possible with traditional, centralized approaches.

As we move forward into an increasingly interconnected and technology-dependent world, the adoption of decentralized post-quantum cybersecurity solutions like the Naoris Protocol will be essential to ensuring the safety, privacy, and integrity of our digital lives across both Web2 and Web3 ecosystems. By embracing this new paradigm, we can build a more secure, transparent, and resilient foundation for the digital age, one that is capable of withstanding the challenges posed by quantum computing and other emerging threats.

Decentralised CyberSecurity Mesh Architecture (dCSMA)

Naoris Protocol's Decentralised CyberSecurity Mesh Architecture (dCSMA) effectively addresses the core challenges around secure and trusted information sharing between organisations, while adhering to zero-trust principles.

Utilising a custom-built dPoSec blockchain, distributed Swarm AI, and cryptography, the system focuses on Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (CIA) assurance for data quality and security.

Devices become trusted validator nodes operating under consensus, detecting real-time anomalies to bring validated decentralized trust to untrusted and centralized processes, operations, devices and networks.

No More Centralized Silos

Under Naoris Protocol, devices behave as they're designed to and are no longer required to operate in centralized silos, but are measured and are active security contributors under consensus to a new layer of decentralized trust and assurance mesh.

Naoris Protocol deploys a software agent onto any device or service that enables the continuous real-time reporting of its cybersecurity and operational status under dPoSec consensus, creating a network of validators that provably assure infrastructure security.

Every device becomes a cyber-trusted validator node that constantly monitors every other device in real time. Detection of cyber unknowns within complex networks happens in milliseconds, under the collective intelligence of Swarm AI that monitors, identifies and responds to cyber risks quicker than any single entity can.

Trust is strengthened by creating a collaborative environment where agents work together to validate and secure each other and to locate and map threats against known threat models. Naoris Protocol secures the device and operational baseline through decentralized unified governance across all devices, creating an intelligent network of trust.

In effect, Naoris Protocol ensures secure validated data quality and exchange, redefining TRUST, while shaping future security standards.

Key Components of the Decentralized Cybersecurity Framework


Agents are autonomous software programs that operate independently or on behalf of users within the decentralized cybersecurity framework. There are two main types of agents:

  • Validators: Distributed nodes responsible for performing multi-level integrity checks to validate transactions and ensure blockchain integrity.

  • DataScan: Agents that scan logs in real-time, applying thousands of rules to detect known malicious patterns and activities.

Swarm AI

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are integrated to enhance the capabilities of agents, enabling intelligent decision-making, anomaly detection, predictive analytics, and continuous learning.

dPoSec Consensus Mechanism

Naoris Protocol employs a custom-built consensus mechanism called dPoSec (Decentralized Proof of Security). dPoSec combines elements of Proof of Stake (PoS) and Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) to achieve energy efficiency, resilience against faults, and protection from malicious nodes. The Oracle for Chain Health component continuously monitors node health and security.

Advanced Security Measures

  • Quantum Resistance: Integration of Key Encapsulation Mechanism (KEM) and quantum-resistant signatures like Dilithium to protect against potential quantum computing attacks.

  • Blockchain Bridges: Enables secure transfer of data/assets between different blockchains or layers, allowing seamless integration with external systems.

Blockchain Ecosystem

The ecosystem includes a user-friendly blockchain explorer for transparency and auditing, and IPFS for secure decentralized data backup and storage.
