Brave Integrates IPFS to Enable Users to Seamlessly Browse The Decentralized Web

Advancing the transition to a decentralized Web, IPFS integration on Brave’s desktop browser increases content availability and Internet resilience 

IPFS, the peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol designed to make the Web faster, safer, and more open, has been integrated into Brave, the fast, privacy-oriented browser, reinventing the Web for users, publishers and advertisers. 

Incorporated into today’s Brave desktop browser update (version 1.19), Brave’s 24 million monthly active users can now access content directly from IPFS by resolving ipfs:// URIs via a gateway or installing a full IPFS node in one click. When installing a full node, this will allow Brave users to load content over IPFS’ p2p network, hosted on their own node.  Integrating IPFS provides Brave users with a significantly enhanced browsing experience, increasing the availability of content, offloading server costs from the content publisher, and improving the overall resilience of the Internet.

Molly Mackinlay, Project Lead at IPFS said, Bringing the benefits of the dWeb to Brave users, IPFS’ efforts to remove systemic data censorship by corporations and nation-states are now strengthened through the integration with Brave. Today, Web users across the world are unable to access restricted content, including, for example, parts of Wikipedia in Thailand, over 100,000 blocked websites in Turkey, and critical access to COVID-19 information in China. Now anyone with an internet connection can access this critical information through IPFS on the Brave browser.”

In a further aspect of the integration, projects building on IPFS such as app development platforms, Textile, and Fleek, will automatically enable anyone to deploy a website or dApp accessible on Brave.

Brian Bondy, CTO and co-founder of Brave, said, “We’re thrilled to be the first browser to offer a native IPFS integration with today’s Brave desktop browser release. Providing Brave’s 1 million+ verified content creators with the power to seamlessly serve content to millions of new users across the globe via a new and secure protocol, IPFS gives users a solution to the problem of centralized servers creating a central point of failure for content access. IPFS’ innovative content addressing uses Content Identifiers (CIDs) to form an address based on the content itself as opposed to locating data based on the address of a server. Integrating the IPFS open-source network is a key milestone in making the Web more transparent, decentralized, and resilient.” 

With a budding community of over four thousand IPFS contributors around the world, this is the initial implementation of IPFS on Brave. Striving to give users full control of their online experience, future collaborations will facilitate automatic redirects from DNSLink websites to the native IPFS version, the ability to “co-host” a website, features to easily publish to IPFS, and much more.

About IPFS

IPFS is a peer-to-peer network and protocol designed to make the web faster, safer, and more open. IPFS upgrades the web to work peer to peer, addressing data by what it is instead of where it’s located on the network, or who is hosting it.

About Brave

Brave Software’s fast, privacy-oriented browser, combined with its blockchain-based digital advertising platform, is reinventing the Web for users, publishers, and advertisers. Users get a private, speedier web experience with much longer battery life, publishers increase their revenue share, and advertisers achieve better conversion. Users can opt into privacy-respecting ads that reward them with a frequent flyer-like token they can redeem or use to tip or contribute to publishers and other content creators. The Brave solution is a win-win for everyone who has a stake in the open Web and who is weary of giving up privacy and revenue to the ad-tech intermediaries. Brave currently has over 24 million monthly active users and over 1 million Verified Publishers. Brave Software was co-founded by Brendan Eich, creator of JavaScript and co-founder of Mozilla (Firefox), and Brian Bondy, formerly of Khan Academy and Mozilla.

Boston Dynamics: The Dancing Robots

Boston Dynamics robots now they can also dance! We have seen them run, open doors and go for a walk but in a new video released by the company the robots dance to the classic hit “Do You Love Me”.

Boston Dynamics’ two robots the Atlas and Spot can do a lot of things like backflips, sprinting, open doors gymnastic routines, parkour, wash dishes, and perform actual jobs.

The new video presents the three Waltham robotics company robots — the humanoid Atlas, the dog-shaped Spot, and the box-juggling Handle — all come together in a coordinated dance set.

The company has recently started selling the Spot robot for the considerable price of $74,500.

The Atlas and Handle robots featured in the video are still research prototypes.

Boston Dynamics: The Dancing Robots

Boston Dynamics was purchased by Hyundai, from SoftBank in a $1.1 billion deal. Boston Dynamics was founded in 1992 in Waltham Ma. as a spin-off from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where it became known for its quadrupedal robots (the DARPA-funded BigDog, a precursor to the company’s first commercial robot, Spot.) It was bought by Alphabet’s X division(GOOGL) in 2013, and then by Softbank in 2017.

MAS Announces Successful Applicants of Licences to Operate New Digital Banks in Singapore

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) announced four successful digital bank applicants.
 
2     The applicants selected for the award of banking licences to operate digital banks are as follows:

 Digital Full Bank (DFB)

  • A consortium comprising Grab Holding Inc. and Singapore Telecommunications Ltd.
  • An entity wholly-owned by Sea Ltd.

Digital Wholesale Bank (DWB)

  • A consortium comprising  Greenland Financial Holdings Group Co. Ltd, Linklogis Hong Kong Ltd, and Beijing Co-operative Equity Investment Fund Management Co. Ltd.
  • An entity wholly-owned by Ant Group Co. Ltd.

The successful applicants must meet all relevant prudential requirements and licensing pre-conditions before MAS grants them their respective banking licences. MAS expects the new digital banks to commence operations from early 2022. 

3     MAS had previously announced that it would award banking licences for up to two DFBs and up to three DWBs. There were a total of 14 eligible applications. The applications were assessed on the following criteria:

  • value proposition of business model, incorporating innovative use of technology to serve customer needs and reach under-served segments;
  • ability to manage a prudent and sustainable digital banking business; and
  • growth prospects and other contributions to Singapore’s financial centre.

The assessment was done on a holistic basis, taking into account all relevant considerations for each criterion. MAS also took into consideration the eligible applicants’ reviews of the business plans and assumptions underpinning their financial projections arising from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic [1] .

4     To select the successful applicants, MAS set stringent expectations across the assessment criteria. The two selected DFB applicants were clearly stronger than the other eligible DFB applicants. As for the DWBs, the two selected applicants met MAS’ expectations and were assessed to be demonstrably stronger across the criteria notwithstanding the general high quality of the eligible applicants. MAS has thus decided to award banking licences to the two DWBs. As the DWBs are introduced as a pilot, MAS will review whether to grant more of such licences in the future.

5     Mr Ravi Menon, Managing Director of MAS, said, “MAS applied a rigorous, merit-based process to select a strong slate of digital banks. We expect them to thrive alongside the incumbent banks and raise the industry’s bar in delivering quality financial services, particularly for currently underserved businesses and individuals. They will further strengthen Singapore’s financial sector for the digital economy of the future.”

 ***


Additional Information:

In June 2019, MAS announced the digital bank framework, which aims to enable non-bank players with strong value propositions and innovative digital business models to offer digital banking services. DFBs will be provide a wide range of financial services and take deposits from retail customers, while DWBs will focus on serving SMEs and other non-retail segments.

These new digital banks are in addition to any subsidiaries that Singapore-incorporated banking groups may already establish under MAS’ existing regulatory framework, including with joint venture partners, to operate new or alternative business models such as a digital-only bank.  

Details of the assessment criteria can be found on MAS’ website.

Protection against cyber-risks: Federal Council approves ordinance and additional staff

Bern, 28.05.2020 – The Ordinance on Protecting against Cyber-Risks in the Federal Administration was adopted by the Federal Council during its meeting on 27 May 2020 and will come into force on 1 July 2020. Moreover, the Federal Council decided to allocate 20 new posts to increase staffing for the implementation of the 2020-2022 national strategy for the protection of Switzerland against cyber-risks.

To enable the Confederation to play a more active role in protecting Switzerland against cyber-risks, the Federal Council decided in January 2019 to establish a cybersecurity competence centre, headed by a Federal Cybersecurity Delegate. With the Ordinance on Protecting against Cyber-Risks in the Federal Administration, the Federal Department of Finance (FDF) is implementing the Federal Council’s mandate of 30 January 2019 and creating the legal basis for the establishment and expansion of the National Cybersecurity Centre (NCSC). This ordinance and the 20 new posts in the area of cyber-risks will enable the Federal Council to meet the demands of businesses and political circles for a robust competence centre with a clear structure and greater centralisation.

Main organisational features

The ordinance adopted by the Federal Council governs the structure, tasks and powers of the authorities involved. This means that it also sets out the composition and tasks of the Cyber Core Group and the NCS Steering Committee, two bodies that enable increased interdepartmental cooperation within the Federal Administration. After consulting the services concerned, the NCSC can take the lead and order immediate measures when dealing with a cyberincident. The ordinance additionally regulates the obligation of Federal Administration service providers to report to the NCSC.

The FDF has started to establish the NCSC under the leadership of the Cybersecurity Delegate, Florian Schütz, who took up his position in August 2019. He is the Confederation’s key contact person in the area of cyber-risks, and issues IT security guidelines for the Federal Administration, among other things. The NCSC currently consists of a strategic and an operational division. The strategic division is already being managed as an independent new unit in the FDF General Secretariat. The operational division includes the existing Reporting and Analysis Centre for Information Assurance (MELANI), Federal ICT Security and GovCERT.ch, which were previously part of the Federal IT Steering Unit (FITSU). These areas will also be transferred to the FDF General Secretariat, under the direct management of the Cybersecurity Delegate, once the organisational establishment work has been completed.

20 new posts for NCS implementation

The Federal Council adopted the implementation plan for the 2018-2022 national strategy for the protection of Switzerland against cyber-risks (NCS) back in May 2019 and approved 24 additional posts at that time. These resources are to be expanded further. Subject to the Federal Council’s future decisions on resources in the area of personnel, another 20 posts are planned to cover the task areas in the offices responsible for protecting against cyber-risks.

Dramatic Rise of Cybersecurity Risks from COVID-19 Prompts Action Plan

  • COVID-19 has accelerated the global transition to a new reality of unprecedented digital dependency, heightened cyber risks and vulnerabilities
  • Leaders and organizations are forced to digitally adapt their organizations faster than ever to remain relevant
  • Five principles developed to help global leaders reinforce the cyber resilience and cybersecurity of their organizations in a context of rampant global change and uncertainty
  • Find out more about the World Economic Forum’s work on cybersecurity

Geneva, Switzerland, 26 May 2020 – In a matter of weeks, the pandemic forced the global economy and society, organizations and individuals to become more reliant than ever on the internet and the digital economy. According to the Forum’s COVID-19 Risks Outlook: A Preliminary Mapping and its Implications, cyberattacks and data fraud are considered the most likely technological risks of COVID-19 for the world, and the third of greatest concern overall owing to abrupt adoption of new working patterns.

To support business leaders responsible for reinforcing the cyber resilience of their organizations in an unforeseen, instantaneous new reality, the World Economic Forum today launched The Cybersecurity Leadership Principles: Lessons learnt during the COVID-19 pandemic to prepare for the new normal.

All leaders and organizations are pressured to adapt business models faster than anyone was prepared for, to ensure existential survival. The principles provide a framework for responsible decision-making and action in this crucial period to help organizations balance short-term goals with medium- to longer-term imperatives. To bolster cyber resilience and secure operations, they urge leaders to:

Foster a culture of cyber resilience Focus on protecting the organization’s critical assets and services Balance risk-informed decisions during the crisis and beyondUpdate and practice response and business continuity plans as the business transitions to the “new normal”Strengthen ecosystem-wide collaboration

“Due to COVID-19, businesses must accelerate their digital transformation to harness the benefits while striking a balance between agility, scalability, efficiency, profitability and cybersecurity,” said Georges De Moura, Head of Industry Solutions, Centre for Cybersecurity, World Economic Forum. “The confluence of these disruptive forces is impacting critical functions and industry ecosystems globally.”

“This crisis has prompted a step-change in our reliance on digital channels. We are managing the associated risk by following appropriate principles, including fostering a greater culture of cyber resilience and strengthening collaboration with external stakeholders”, said Sandro Bucchianeri, Group Chief Security Officer, Absa Group.

“The principles highlighted in this report will help businesses take an overall approach that combines cybersecurity with system engineering and operations to prepare for and adapt to changing conditions, and to withstand and recover rapidly from disruptions caused by cyberattacks and crisis scenarios,” said Mark Hugues, Senior Vice President Security, DXC Technology.

Known before the pandemic, the relevance and benefit of the principles and imperatives are underscored by the new reality, its pace and scale. COVID-19 is confronting every organization with the limits of its ability to learn and change in an environment where speed is everything and where delaying key decisions can have a dramatic impact on business operations.

With the instantaneous shift to the digital realm, cyber resilience and cybersecurity are no longer theoretical nice-to-haves: companies – and countries – have become painfully conscious of the fragility of the critical systems upon which they vitally depend and that must be secure and resilient.

“In the urgent management of near-term challenges, responsible business leaders must incorporate cyber resilience in the business operating model and invest in capabilities to anticipate, withstand, recover from and adapt to adverse conditions and cyberattacks, to position the business for its success beyond the pandemic conditions,” De Moura said.

According to the report, this approach and the rigorous application of the principles will help organizations earn the trust of employees, customers and business partners, and help to successfully adapt in an increasingly ambiguous and fast-moving world.

Crypto Powerhouse Samsung Releases World’s First 5G Smartphone With Quantum Tech

Crypto-friendly electronics giant Samsung and SK Telecom have launched the Galaxy A Quantum, available in South Korea. Housing quantum cryptography technology, the new device is the world’s first 5G smartphone with a quantum random number generator (QRNG) chipset.

The chipset, developed by SK Telecom’s Switzerland-based subsidiary ID Quantique, generates random numbers through quantum-crypto technology to create secure keys that can’t be cracked, according to the announcement.

The Galaxy A Quantum, available for pre-order, is slated to go on sale in Korea on May 22nd, marking Samsung’s push into leveraging cryptography to build powerhouse smartphones that can store and help users manage a range of sensitive data.

The release marks the ongoing shift to a digital economy that is fast, mobile, frictionless and unencumbered by physical locations, physical documents, physical certifications, physical currencies and middlemen.

Samsung engineers note that the new quantum tech integration will secure several of the phones’ features.

“The QRNG chipset enhances the security of various applications such as SK Pay, T ID login, and Initial. T ID is used for logging into various online services, including 11th Street, FLO, T Map, T membership, Wavve, Who, and others, and the service is used by over 19 million customers.”

Initial is a blockchain mobile electronic certification service. It allows smartphones users to send personal certifications securely. SK Telecom says it will expand the number of applications and services that can leverage its quantum-powered chipset to enhance security.

Samsung first launched their Blockchain Keystore in March of 2019, allowing consumers to manage and control their digital data and private keys in a push to support blockchain-based platforms and cryptocurrencies. The platform allows crypto enthusiasts to store their holdings directly on their smartphones, initially supporting Ethereum and Ethereum-based tokens. Samsung added support for Bitcoin (BTC) on its blockchain-powered smartphones last August.

The crypto-friendly smartphone manufacturer is promoting its latest integration with blockchain network Tron, currently featuring founder Justin Sun on the Samsung Galaxy Store home page.

Five New Technologies that Can Prevent Everything from Fraud to Future Financial Shocks

  • World Economic Forum identifies five new technologies for financial services which can help prevent everything from fraud to systemic risk
  • New technologies can enhance data-sharing opportunities by allowing financial institutions to analyse data across the industry while maintaining customer privacy
  • These technologies are ready for use in the financial sector but will require the industry to address surrounding barriers such as poor data quality and regulatory uncertainty.
  • Read more on privacy-enhancing technology here

New York, USA, 12 September 2019 –A new white paper, The Next Generation of Data Sharing in Financial Services, from the World Economic Forum has identified new technologies that banks and other financial institutions can implement for privacy-protected data-sharing between institutions. This data-sharing will enable broad analysis, which can be used to identify industry-wide risks and could even prevent future financial shocks.

Beyond system-wide benefits, these newly identified technologies, coined “privacy-enhancing techniques” can also use improved data-sharing to prevent fraud, offer financial advice, and much more. Privacy-enhancing techniques lessen the tensions underlying data-sharing. Instead of threatening customer privacy, this new wave of technology not only protects it but also enhances industry collaboration.

These five technologies include:

While new and novel for use in financial services, these technologies have existed within laboratories for years and are now ready for use in the real world of banking and other financial services. If harnessed, these tools could usher in a new, more collaborative, era of the sector on matters related to risk and product development.

“With advancing privacy-enhancing technologies, financial services have the ability to work more closely together on a range of important challenges and opportunities, from combating illicit financial transactions to identifying material risk exposures across institutions, to developing more personalized financial advice and products,” says Matthew Blake, Head of Financial and Monetary System Initiatives, World Economic Forum. “Privacy-enhancing techniques open a range of possibilities for enhanced risk management and financial innovation with benefits for customers, regulators and financial institutions alike.”

These technologies, used separately or in conjunction, greatly reduce the risks associated with data sharing and have the potential to fundamentally redefine the dynamics of data sharing in financial services. Opportunities from these technologies include the ability to:

· Better detect and prevent fraudulent activity: Federated analysis could be used to create shared fraud detection and prevention models across institutions without sharing the personally sensitive information about specific customers

· Identify system-wide risks and prevent financial crises: Secure multi-party computation could be used to conduct aggregate analysis on financial institutions’ risk exposures without breaching their institutional competitive secrets, allowing for an advance warning on systemic risks and exposures such as those that led to the 2008 financial crisis

· Enable new forms of personalized digital advice: Leveraging differential privacy in the analysis of transactions across an institution’s customer base could enable sophisticated and specific “people like you” recommendations without exposing individual customers’ spending habits

· And more, as explored in The Next Generation of Data Sharing in Financial Services




One of the key learnings from the financial crisis was that system-wide risk exposures were not properly quantified and understood by enterprises as well as financial supervisors. This was partly due to inadequate management information systems that did a poor job of aggregating risk exposures across institutions as well as too narrow a focus by supervisors on the risk of individual financial firms rather than the interconnections between institutions and the broader system.

Competitive dynamics also played a part; it is perilous for a financial institution to make explicit its risk exposures because other actors may take advantage and profit from that level of transparency. Enter privacy-enhancing techniques, which make sharing granular information across institutions possible – allowing for transparency without unveiling too much, presenting new possibilities for collaboration between institutions, supervisors and customers.

“It is important to note that these technologies are not a magic wand. Using them requires financial institutions to address surrounding issues such as poor data quality, legal uncertainties and siloed data infrastructures,” says Bob Contri, Principal, Deloitte United States; Global Financial Services Industry Leader. “However, addressing these roadblocks and using privacy-enhancing techniques can propel the financial services industry into a new era of collaboration and value delivery.”

According to the World Economic Forum, financial services executives should take a concerted look at these new techniques and where they might best be deployed. Bringing these technologies into practice will require a degree of experimentation and technological expertise. Nonetheless, the benefits of widescale adoption are clear and speak to greater alignment and action among key stakeholders on issues of systemic importance.

I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you. In my experience, there is no such thing as luck. Partially, but it also obeys your commands. I want to come with you to Alderaan. There’s nothing for me here now. I want to learn the ways of the Force and be a Jedi, like my father before me. The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.

Still, she’s got a lot of spirit. I don’t know, what do you think? What!? I don’t know what you’re talking about. I am a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan– What good is a reward if you ain’t around to use it? Besides, attacking that battle station ain’t my idea of courage. It’s more like…suicide.

She must have hidden the plans in the escape pod. Send a detachment down to retrieve them, and see to it personally, Commander. There’ll be no one to stop us this time! You’re all clear, kid. Let’s blow this thing and go home! Partially, but it also obeys your commands.
