The core problem we are aiming to solve

Our core problem targets the inefficiencies, vulnerabilities, and scalability issues inherent in traditional network management systems. These systems struggle with static routing, manual configurations, and centralized control, leading to high latency, security risks like DDoS attacks, and bottlenecks that impede performance. Additionally, the lack of real-time adaptability prevents effective resource utilization and increases operational costs.

Our solution integrates advanced artificial intelligence (AI) to autonomously optimize network paths, enhance security through predictive analytics, and enable self-healing capabilities that minimize downtime. By leveraging AI, we aim to transform network management into a more secure, efficient, and scalable system, ready to meet the growing demands of the modern digital landscape and support the continuous expansion of network-connected devices and services.

Our specific solution to this problem

Our solution deploys IPvX, an innovative AI-enhanced protocol that leverages machine learning for dynamic optimization of network routing and addressing, significantly enhancing efficiency and reducing latency. This allows the network to seamlessly handle increasing data traffic and adapt to modern digital application demands.

IPvX utilizes predictive analytics to proactively enhance security by identifying and mitigating potential threats before they impact the network. Additionally, IPvX features a self-healing mechanism that detects and resolves issues automatically, ensuring reliable network service.

A core component of the IPvX ecosystem is its decentralized architecture, which facilitates scalable network expansion without the need for manual reconfigurations. This decentralization is supported by blockchain technology, which enables secure and transparent management of network routes. By integrating blockchain, IPvX minimizes the reliance on traditional intermediaries such as ISPs and DNS servers, simplifying network management.

The IPvX ecosystem represents a shift towards an autonomous, secure, and efficient network infrastructure, supporting critical technologies like IoT and edge computing that depend on robust networks. This blockchain-backed framework ensures that each node can operate independently yet cohesively within the broader network, paving the way for a resilient digital future.

Project details

Our proposal serves Internet governance simplification alongside with a network model, aimed to mitigate drawbacks and limitations of current implementation, and bringing new possibilities to customers.

When you start your own business and apply a website, you have to deal with a numeral of involved parties, making it complicated to run a website in short term.

You have to own an IP address block, or have a single dedicated IP address, provided by hosting services; next you have to own a domain name; book a machine at the datastore; bring you IP set to an Internet Services Provider; and luckily then – deploy your website.

Current network model stack:

- Application Layer
- Transport Layer
- Internet Layer
- Network Access Layer

The Internet grew from a small network, overcoming limitations of scalability and centralized government. That was a story of "applying patches" from the beginning, so many additional protocols and technologies grew from limitations and insecurity.

Many parties are involved, and they run various databases. There are also numerous entities that change DNS and Routing information. It might be useful to store some of these databases information in a blockchain.

Modern technologies have to implement security by design. Using blockchain as a source of proof allows to minimize the number of involved parties, because at nearly every network model layer we face the necessity to authenticate and authorize actors. The single blockchain keypair could take it all.

Using the blockchain as a single but distributed source of routing and addressing information could also leverage limitations of the traditional scheme.

With several development stages we come to traditional dns and routing databases done transferred into the Blockchain. And traditional entities exist alongside with the new ones.

Without traditional databases

With Blockchain DNS "zoneless" concept introduced - there is no need to strictly follow top-to-bottom domain hierarchy. When flat, the single "zone" could be filled up with information pointing to a desired short name of a blockchain identifier.

There could be some models designed, imperially evaluating desired name and providing it to the actor in exchange for obligation to collaborate in blockchain. Occasional and sporadical registrations could be filtered out this way.

The route information could also be transferred into the Blockchain. The initial filling of the Blockchain is possible with querying current route databases. Both the Website and an ISP could approve such records in the Blockchain.

In this new scheme there is no need to rely on traditional DNS hierarchy - it does not make sense, whether the Website uses TLD or not.

Blockchain support layer

This is a development stage, when blockchain interaction functions run by dedicated applications, meet support by operation systems the applications are being run at.

New network model layer introduced - the BCP Layer ("Blockchain Control Protocol Layer").

As the data from applications has to be passed further, the BCP Layer also takes functions of packaging application data into new type of packets with blockchain-enabled addressing information added.

Functions of a new layer are:

- obtaining domain and routing information from the Blockchain
- forming BCP Layer protocol packets
- passing packets to underlying layer

Then an underlying layer uses it's own protocols to pass the data further, until the data meets physical layer, and the transmission reaches the destination network device.

Blockchain control protocol (BCP)

At this stage hardware devices capable to run BCP Layer and its supporting protocols are introduced.

And the BCP Layer is now capable of talking to hardware directly, taking BCP Layer protocols into play.

This design opens wide possibilities of bringing devices into network, because:

- there will be no nets to subnets hierarchy
- no root-tld-subdomain relations
- every BCP-capabe device acts as a sole network node
- (even your laptop could run a temporary website immediately as you start it)

The Internet Service Providers continue to run their important function physically connecting devices to network.

What is IPvX?

We call the described concept "The IPvX Ecosystem"

IPvX is a new paradigm of Internet addressing, routing, and entity identification.

The goal is to power the described transition from traditional ecosystem with architecture, protocols, procedures, etc.

We need to provide these sufficient tools that will support and drive this paradigm shift. It is not just another version of IP protocol, upgraded to avoid some of already faced limitations, but a new network layer, abstract of underlying layers and lying closer to applications. That means no matter what type of a network you use, IPvX will run above it.

And with IPvX acceptance by the community and vendors there comes a possibility to implement new protocol to run hardware, meaning simplification of the Network OSI Model where applications interact with the new layer, and it in turn interacts directly with media transmissioning
 hardware devices.

Our task is to design and provide clear roadmap on features, suitable usecases, new ideas of usage, and step-by-step instructions, so everybody could join and try.


BCP Layer

This is a new Network OSI Model Layer capable to interact with the Blockchain and use nested protocols for transmitting application data to underlying layers and further to the recipient.

The main idea is to "shift up" - provide an abstract from underlying transport layers, and use new types of addresses and routing information, aligned with the Blockchain usage. We could use the power of blockchain-related technologies to serve data delivery.

And at the next stage of developement the BCP Layer will serve as a sole layer, which interacts with the Blockchain, the Application, and the Network Access Layer (transportation media).

We define the IPvX Protocol, which will serve these needs.

Blockchain

The blockchain serves as a reliable, secure, and distributed database. When a database record is made the Blockchain stores this transaction with the following properties:

- authenticated
- tamper-proof
- non-repudation

This means the transaction is made by the expected party, the transaction has not been changed on a way to the Blockchain, and the party performed the transaction can not cancel the transaction in meaning of the deletion.

All these properties belong to the Blockchain user number - the wallet number which is the public key of the user. And with the private key the user signs their transactions.

And here comes the same story as with IP addresses and domain names. To link IP addresses with suitable domain names the DNS technology nad been implemented.

The blockchain technology provides another possibility to link complicated user number to a useful identity - Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT). Not only the identity, but any other entity.

Non-Fungible Tokens

In relation to our model, NFTs could be used to proof identities of these entities:

- user
- private person
- legal entity
- network address
- traditional IP address
- new IPvX address
- alias to the address
- traditional domain name
- "zoneless" domain names, which we defined earlier in "Without traditional databases" section
- routing information
- traditional AS numbers, route objects, and other information from IRR databases
- new model routing information
- any other entity we want to reliably identify

Smart Contracts

Next, the blockchain provides a mechanism to establish the rules, how do entities interact - Smart Contracts (SC)

The input of SC:

- the agreeing parties
- the conditions of the agreement

The output:

- the signing of the contract
- storing the signed contract on the blockchain

In relation to our model, SCs could be used for:

- allocation of network addresses
- allocation of aliases to the addresses
- changing routing information of any kind
- any other actions, where two parties agree in resource allocation

One new non-obvious SC use case - bringing network security right to the core. We could describe firewalling rules at a network definition level. For example, we could allow or deny network access from one NFT to another - this is a revolutionary approach, because until now these actions were held on a client access level.

In relation to SC-defined routing rules, there is a second major new use case - parties could agree on a traffic transit, and this brings new opportunities to the business.

Artificial Intelligence

With the rules described and relations between parties established, it is possible to query these rules with the help of the artificial intelligence.

In traditional model with TCP/IP stack various routing protocols are involved to choose mainly next hop for the single packet. The complete route of the packet is combined according to metrics used by these protocols, the rules for decision, where to send next from a given router, and interconnections between internet service providers.

Building route in IPvX Ecosystem brings new possibilities in terms not only next-hop rules, but also an ability to build or choose the best route to the destination, according to various agreements. For example, passing traffic from NFT1 to NFT2 through NFT3 could include some price. Also for some kind of traffic there could be established firewalling rules, so the complete route has to be changed. Whatever affects, it could be evaluated and calculated to bring the best route to the sender, whether it has to be the cheapest route, the fastest route, or even the route, which would generate income for the sender.

So we can conclude, that routing becomes more complicated, and it is desireble to delegate this duty to the Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Bringing the routing model to AI is up to the customer, or it could choose one of the models, offered by the AI Services Provider.

Revenue Sharing Model

Custom Model

Custom Description:

Our custom Revenue Sharing Model is designed to create a sustainable ecosystem where all stakeholders in the IPvX network benefit from the growth and success of the platform. This model emphasizes transparency, fairness, and incentive alignment across different parties, including developers, operators, and users.

Here’s an outline of the model:

Revenue Sources:
1. Network Usage Fees:Users pay fees based on the volume of data they transmit over the IPvX network, which is more efficient and secure.
2. Service Provider Fees: Third-party service providers pay to offer their services (like enhanced security, faster routing, or specialized communication services) on the IPvX platform.
3. Partnership and Integration Fees: Revenue generated from strategic partnerships and integrations with other tech companies and network providers.

Revenue Distribution:
1. Network Maintenance and Development: A significant portion of the revenue is reinvested into maintaining and upgrading network infrastructure, supporting ongoing development and deployment of new features.
2. Stakeholder Rewards:
   - Operators and Maintainers: Those who maintain and operate the network infrastructure receive a portion of the revenue as compensation for their operational efforts and investment in hardware.
   - Developers: Revenue is allocated to developers who create and implement solutions and applications for the IPvX ecosystem, incentivizing innovation and continuous improvement.
   - Users: In a unique twist, active users who contribute to the network's efficiency—for instance, by participating in consensus or validation processes—receive rewards, promoting a participatory ecosystem.

3. Community and Ecosystem Development Fund: A reserve fund is established to finance community projects, educational programs, and outreach initiatives to expand the user base and foster a robust developer community.

4. Blockchain Node Operators: Operators of blockchain nodes, crucial for the decentralized route management system, are compensated for their contribution to securing and upholding the network’s blockchain layer.

Model Benefits:
- Scalability: The model supports scaling as revenue increases with network usage, encouraging broader adoption.
- Decentralization: By rewarding various contributors, the model decentralizes control and profits, reducing single points of failure and bias.
- Sustainability: With a focus on reinvestment and community funding, the model ensures long-term sustainability and continuous growth of the network ecosystem.

This Revenue Sharing Model is designed to not only fund the infrastructure and operational costs of the IPvX network but also to distribute the economic benefits equitably among all contributors, fostering a vibrant and sustainable ecosystem.

      The use of NFTs as part of IPvX addresses allows not only to identify a node, but also to assign ownership to it, describing the ownership of the node to which it has been issued. The NFT can also contain certain unique characteristics of a node, allowing it to be used as a basic component in the Internet of Things. See our article [https://archive.org/details/ipv-x-ecosystem_202405/IPvX_Ecosystem.pdf] and an earlier one here [https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/evolution-internet-addressing-from-dns-distributed-resolvers-ipvx/?trackingId=b1cxrzkxjw%2FsmQp38qZcXQ%3D%3D].There is a section with examples.

    The 4 outstanding members of the team only lack the identity of 1 member whose Delivery and QA task is to complete feasible transparency. It's a pity that I can't give high marks because of this omission (the other 3 members all performed very well in their records). Besides, the presentation of 5 fairly standard milestones is just a plus point in demonstrating feasibility. Overall, this is not a bad performance by professionals.

    IP for Blockchain world

    The IPvX protocol, developed by the Institute for the Development of Public Digital Networks (IEDN), represents a groundbreaking approach to internet addressing by integrating blockchain technology. This protocol aims to decentralize the traditional hierarchical IP registry system, which is currently managed by ICANN and its regional resellers, into a more flexible and secure decentralized system.

    Key Features and Innovations

    1. Decentralization: The IPvX protocol eliminates the need for a centralized infrastructure by distributing the registry of IP addresses across a blockchain network. This decentralization reduces bureaucratic bottlenecks and enhances the flexibility and dynamism of the internet.

    2. Security: By leveraging blockchain technology, IPvX ensures a high level of data security. Blockchain provides data reliability and integrity, making the system resistant to cyber attacks. The use of smart contracts further automates and secures network processes.

    3. Scalability: IPvX is designed to scale efficiently, accommodating both small local networks and large global systems. This scalability is crucial for supporting the growing number of internet-connected devices and the increasing demand for data transmission.

    4. Automation: Smart contracts in the IPvX ecosystem automate network and resource management processes, simplifying operations and reducing the potential for human error.

    5. Openness: The protocol promotes an open ecosystem where network participants can freely exchange information and utilize the network for various purposes, including financial transactions and personal data transmission.

    Implementation and Benefits

    The IPvX protocol proposes creating a distributed registry of Internet resources based on NFT blockchain technology. Each IP address, whether IPv4 or IPv6, is represented as an NFT token, providing unique, immutable, and verifiable identifiers for each resource in the network. This transformation allows for activities such as the sale, lease, or temporary transfer of IP addresses, all governed by smart contracts.

    The integration of blockchain technology ensures that data transmitted over the network is secure and tamper-proof. The decentralized nature of the blockchain also makes it resistant to cyber attacks. Additionally, the protocol\'s design allows for efficient and secure data transmission, which is particularly beneficial for applications requiring high levels of data integrity and confidentiality.

    Challenges and Future Prospects

    Transitioning from the current hierarchical IP registry system to a decentralized blockchain-based system will require significant effort and coordination among various stakeholders. Widespread adoption of the IPvX protocol will depend on its ability to demonstrate clear advantages over existing systems and to gain the trust of network participants.

    Despite these challenges, the IPvX protocol holds the potential to revolutionize internet infrastructure by providing a more secure, reliable, and efficient network. The integration of blockchain technology with IP addressing could lead to the creation of a new internet registry that is more convenient and promising for users.

    In conclusion, the IPvX protocol developed by IEDN represents a forward-thinking approach to internet addressing, combining the strengths of blockchain technology with the needs of modern network infrastructure. Its focus on decentralization, security, scalability, and automation positions it as a promising solution for the future of internet communication and data transmission.

    hank you for your thorough and insightful review of the IPvX protocol. We appreciate your recognition of our efforts to innovate and enhance the internet infrastructure through the integration of blockchain technology.

    Your detailed analysis of our key features, such as decentralization, security, scalability, automation, and openness, underscores the unique strengths of the IPvX protocol. We believe that by eliminating the centralized infrastructure and introducing a decentralized registry of IP addresses, we can significantly improve the flexibility and security of internet communications.

    Moreover, the implementation of smart contracts and the use of NFT blockchain technology for IP address management indeed represent significant advancements in the field. These innovations not only enhance data security and integrity but also offer new possibilities for the dynamic management of IP resources.

    We acknowledge the challenges associated with transitioning from the current hierarchical system to a decentralized one. However, we are committed to demonstrating the clear advantages of the IPvX protocol and earning the trust of network participants through continuous improvements and transparent communication.

    Your positive feedback encourages us to continue our work towards revolutionizing internet infrastructure and creating a more secure, reliable, and efficient network for the future. Thank you once again for your valuable input and support.

    How long does it take to complete this product?

    The current IP structure can be completely changed by the IPvX structure - I see it as a new step to change what has existed about IP networks for many years. To do that, the team must try extremely hard and must get financial resources from Deepfunding.

    I am optimistic that the team can do it, unfortunately the team did not say how long it would take to complete this interesting proposal.

    Thank you for your feedback! It is very difficult to determine the exact timing of a project in such a sensitive area as internet infrastructure! But it's safe to say that with funding we will be able to launch the test network within a year. Write an RFC and present the technology to the internet community. I think that the expansion and implementation of the technology to local networks and then to public networks will take 3 to 5 years. A full transition to the new infrastructure can take up to 10 years, as you will have to upgrade all the basic network components or reprogram existing ones to work with the new technology. But this is a normal timeframe for a project of this scale.

    Difficulty converting DNS

    I argue that using blockchain to create a decentralized Internet address system and using NFTs to uniquely identify identities, the project promises to significantly improve cybersecurity through irreplaceable recording. distributed exchange and consensus, minimizing vulnerabilities such as spoofing and DDoS attacks. The system also integrates smart contracts, automates operations, and dynamic resource management, facilitating flexible development and scalability. However, the project cannot avoid limitations. Migration from the current DNS system to IPvX may encounter resistance from the community and large organizations due to the requirement for major infrastructure and operational process changes. Furthermore, legal and regulatory challenges related to the use of NFTs and blockchain in Internet address management also need to be addressed. For the project to achieve optimal effectiveness, careful preparation is required in convincing widespread acceptance and ensuring compliance with legal regulations.

    I completely agree with the statement that there are problems of implementation and widespread use of technology. However, now we are actively using a very outdated DNS technology and for some reason we are introducing IPv6 protocol, which is outdated before its appearance). The obvious waste of resources on useless things is frustrating. It is necessary to change the paradigm of regulation of Internet resources by some obscure individuals and organisations, which are becoming more and more subjective in decision-making and more dependent on government policies, which is already leading to defragmentation of the Internet. If this is not stopped, the Internet will collapse into a multitude of sovereign networks, each of which will have its own rules. We offer a global solution to prevent this

    This is a seismic shift in internet infrastructure

    Transitioning from DNS to IPvX with NFTs represents a seismic shift in internet infrastructure. From a general perspective, this move promises enhanced security, reliability, and scalability. By leveraging blockchain technology and NFTs, IPvX mitigates traditional DNS vulnerabilities like spoofing and DDoS attacks, offering immutable records and distributed consensus. This not only boosts user confidence but also fosters innovation by supporting automated network operations and governance through smart contracts. Additionally, IPvX's decentralized resolver service revolutionizes query processing, ensuring a robust and efficient internet experience.

    Thank you for your feedback, yes indeed, ipvx is a fundamental change in the approach to managing the infrastructure of the Internet network. We want to remove as much as possible the human element of decision making in terms of resource allocation and management. Today's Internet government is a collection of organisations located in different jurisdictions and subject to national laws and managed by specific individuals, making the Internet potentially dependent on personal preferences in decision making or government interests. We plan to completely move away from this model and build a system that is completely independent of private decisions. 
    Thank you for your support!

    IPvX: Bold Internet Revamp with Big Challenges

    Implementing IPvX is an ambitious and complex challenge. It involves overhauling core internet technologies with blockchain, which not only introduces technical complexities but also requires widespread adoption from various internet stakeholders. The transition demands high compatibility with existing systems and must navigate extensive regulatory landscapes. Moreover, while aiming to enhance security and efficiency, introducing such a fundamental change could also expose new vulnerabilities that need rigorous testing and resolution. Despite these hurdles, the potential for a more secure and efficient internet might make these challenges worth tackling if the project can effectively address these concerns.

    It's true that the implementation of IPvX poses significant challenges, but it aims to fundamentally change the way resources such as domains and IP addresses are managed on the Internet. The current hierarchical, jurisdictional system makes unified Internet governance difficult, leading to fragmentation and the emergence of sovereign networks in different countries. 

    IPvX seeks to decentralize control of Internet resources, eliminating centralized registries and subjective resource allocation. By generating addresses on demand based on the needs of nodes, IPvX not only reduces bureaucracy, but also promotes a more open and accessible network environment. This approach could significantly streamline Internet governance, making it more adaptive and efficient.

    However, as you've pointed out, this transformation will require robust security mechanisms to prevent abuse and ensure privacy, as well as compatibility with existing technologies for a smooth transition. The potential for a more secure and efficient Internet where resource management is decentralized justifies the challenges and underscores the importance of addressing these concerns through thorough testing and strategic implementation.

    Transitioning From DNS To IPvX With NFT

    The problem this proposal would address is the inefficiencies, vulnerabilities, and scalability issues inherent in traditional network management systems. These systems struggle with static routing, manual configuration, and centralized control, leading to high latency, security risks like DDoS attacks, and bottlenecks that hinder performance. The solution: they will create an innovative AI-enhanced protocol that leverages machine learning to dynamically optimize network routing and addressing, dramatically improving efficiency and reducing latency. This allows the network to seamlessly handle growing data traffic and adapt to the demands of modern digital applications. Their solution fits the problem they have identified.
    Personal opinion: They should share more details about the members and the team. They should determine the start and end times of each milestone. And they should allocate more detailed budgets based on milestones.
