Ledgered Operating System: Concept Discussion - New Pervasively Ledgered Encryption Based Secure Network OS (PLEBS NOS)

New Pervasively Ledgered Encryption Based Secure Network OS (PLEBS NOS)

New Pervasively Ledgered Encryption Based Secure Network OS (PLEBS NOS)

Proposal for a new OS based on the following requirements:

 

**Ledgering and journaling of IPC to enhance security.

**All IPC and data transfer sequences encrypted, with decentralized signatures en masse.

**No server caching, all communications via local and transglobal networking with caching at routers.

**Communications and processing with hardware encryption dependent.

**Completely Open Source to prevent ransom demands and back door formations.

**Independent decentralized committee to oversee development (no enterprise or bureaucratic agendas).

 

Check out the Sticky Forum Topics below for further information about PLEBS NOS, and please comment and criticize constructively.

In modern computing, security and reliability should be the pre-eminent goal in determining the solidity of the framework on which the user has to depend upon to get real world work done, with the help of computing tools. Yes, this has been a long standing problem made overtly obvious in the internet world (intra-global hacking and cyber warfare), but to date no one, that this author knows of, has really questioned the foundations of the software that runs the internet, down to the programming language and even the inter process communications.

The prime concept to consider within kernel communications, especially if this is to be spread out throughout the network, is the communications security structure. Take the Byzantine Generals Problem for example. Within a chaotic milieu of a large army camped outside a fortified city, there has to be a process of integration that would ensure the reliability of communications and prevent spies infiltrating and posing as message bearers within the army.

 

 

Bitcoins development had to tackle this head on, as money was at stake. To quote an article in the NYTimes, 'The practical consequence of solving this problem is that Bitcoin gives us, for the first time, a way for one Internet user to transfer a unique piece of digital property to another Internet user, such that the transfer is guaranteed to be safe and secure, everyone knows that the transfer has taken place, and nobody can challenge the legitimacy of the transfer. The consequences of this breakthrough are hard to overstate.

What kinds of digital property might be transferred in this way? Think about digital signatures, digital contracts, digital keys (to physical locks, or to online lockers), digital ownership of physical assets such as cars and houses, digital stocks and bonds … and digital money.'

Extrapolating these concepts to a kernel would be the next step in developing a secure network based operating system. An early implementation of a ledgered operating system can be seen within BOLOS.
