LevelNet – Real-time Cybersecurity Solution
Blockchain technology is a transparent digital ledger of transactions and records that are immune to change or deletion. Offering additional traits of increased security, lower costs, time efficiency, and error resistance, blockchain has risen, fluctuated in 2017. The utility of blockchain technology is limitless, sparking the growing list of companies, industries, and government exploring its potential adoption. The blockchain is an immutable public ledger that records digital transactions.
The era of cryptocurrencies has brought new threats from hackers. Rapid development of the cryptocurrency market and the ICO market is accompanied by new ways of cyber attacks on user data. But unfortunately, many of the modern cyber security systems offer limited solutions. Before the information about the new identified threat reaches all devices and antivirus databases are updated, it will take a long time while users’ computers will be threatened.
Regular data protection technologies are updated to identify existing security threats. But they are not aimed at eliminating problems that may occur in the future. Modern cyber security systems must keep pace with the evolving cyber attack methods and be flexible enough so that their solutions can cope with new threats.
LevelNet is a peer to peer collective cyber security network integrating all cyber protection resources available to individual users within the network. It is based on real-time data exchange for cyber-threats detected in the network. Initial threat detection is done by the protection software from various vendors already available/installed at the end-user devices. Once threat is detected by any single user the attributable data is shared immediately providing protection and clean up tool for the rest of the network members via LevelNet application.
The LevelNet network became the first system which found a solution. Underlying LevelNet is a collective approach to cyber security, combining all available means of protecting information. LevelNet allows users to exchange data about identified cyber threats among themselves in real time. This ensures the dynamism of the system, so users can instantly receive updates and be protected from cyber threats in real-time, without waiting for a solution from a particular antivirus system, regardless of the software used.
The LevelNet system provides cybersecurity measures against suspected files/viruses/threats detected by any of the anti-virus/cybersecurity software applications present on the LevelNet network. Suspicious files, viruses, and threats can be quarantined/deleted regardless of whether there is an installed antivirus software at the particular endpoint.
It is essentially a network where each user exchanges information about IT security incidents (viruses and any other computer threats) detected on their device with other users in real time. This above process is done to prevent an attack directed at any device connected to the network. Network users agree to exchange such information beforehand.
Threat detection is performed by monitoring the response of security systems installed on the user’s device. The response is analyzed by the client program that are located both on the user device and outside of it on other nodes of the network. After the analysis is completed, users are notified of the threat. Users receive threat notifications in the form of prepared bundles of information with various network protocols in place.
The source of the notification can be either the user device with an installed client program or other network nodes carrying functional features of the program responsible for notifications. The client program then blocks the threat for all notified users via specialized program features, i.e., alerts, other features then scan for the sources of the various threats.
LevelNet is based on real-time data exchange for cyber-threats detected in the network. Initial threat detection is done by the protection software from various vendors already available/installed at the end-user devices. Once threat is detected by any single user the attributable data is shared immediately providing protection and clean up tool for the rest of the network members via LevelNet application.
Our working prototype is now available for demonstration. It can be easily installed on Mac, Windows or Linux Operating Systems. During one such test (available below) the result was that the malware files were immediately detected and neutralized on all virtual machines.
TOKEN AND ICO DETAILS
The ICO started on the 15th of November 2017, and the soft cap is set at $1,500,000, with the hard cap being set at $55,000,000. The total amount of tokens to be issued will be 70,000,000, and any tokens not sold during the ICO are set to be burned. LVL tokens will be ERC20 tokens. The LVL tokens issued during the ICO may later be redeemed for LVLS tokens, which would entitle the holder of LVLS tokens to profit shares and voting rights in the LevelNet foundation to be set up at a future stage.
