SAN FRANCISCO, May 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Marconi, creators of the first networking and blockchain protocol using programmable packets, is excited to announce a strategic partnership with Cryptic Labs, a top blockchain advisory and research company. The Marconi Protocol uses a unique programmable packet design to build decentralized networking and security apps that can replace what is typically done by expensive hardware equipment. As part of the partnership, preeminent cryptographer and co-inventor of public key encryption, Dr. Whitfield Diffie, Cryptic's Chief Scientist will add his presence to the Marconi technical advisory board.
"The team at Marconi has developed a platform that protects online activity and privacy which is becoming more essential every day. The Marconi Protocol enables anyone to quickly and easily spin up their secure gateway which essentially acts like a VPN," said Stewart Raphael, Cryptic Labs' Chief Technologist. "Peers can now establish secure connections between all nodes in a network so traffic is securely transported."
"We are excited to be working with Cryptic Labs and to have Dr. Diffie, legend and pioneer in public key cryptography, join the Marconi advisory board. As the co-inventor of one of the fundamental security technologies that powers the entire blockchain ecosystem, his experience and expertise will be invaluable and we are honored to have him on our board," says Jong Kim, Chief Architect for Marconi.
