Linux, Dell and Iota are Developing Project Alvarium to Rate Data Trustworthiness
Distributed ledger technology provider Iota, Dell Technologies & the Linux Foundation are cooperating on Project Alvarium.
The noncommercial Linux Foundation announced about creating a new project with the Dell, the Iota Foundation, IBM, MobiledgeX and Unisys support, in a press release on October 28.
Project Alvarium will concentrate on developing the conception of a Data Confidence Fabric (DCF) in order to make the measurement of the data trust & confidence and apps spanning heterogeneous systems easy. The system would score data based on its trustworthiness and reliability.
Dell CTO Jason Shepherd noted that scored data trustworthiness could help corporations meet various compliance conditions such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.
General manager, Networking, Edge & IOT at the Linux Foundation Arpit Joshipura told that they have an intention to help create a cooperative society to concentrate on developing & unifying trust insertion technologies. He mentioned:
“As edge computing becomes more pervasive, a comprehensive open source framework that delivers measurable confidence across industries & across stacks is imperative. We welcome Project Alvarium to the Linux Foundation family of projects.”
The implementation of the project will start in the upcoming quarter with work from Dell Technologies.
