The Roadmap is updated every 3 months at the end of the 3rd month.
We'll never release info drastically ahead of time only on or near the date.
Generate keypairs & certificates for the Sentivate network via a Node module. Identity certificates are the foundation of the network. Ephemeral certificates provide wallet creation, service/website access, and are required to establish a UDSP stream. Code will be posted on our Github and published to NPM.
Certificates will need to be signed when the network is up.
Users can begin to generate domain specific certificates.Domains can be purchased and reserved ahead of schedule via SNTVT (30% off), BTC, ETH, BCH, LTC, & BNB. All domain certificates will be signed by SNTVT and can be validatable with our public key. When the DIS goes up you can validate certificates through it. Discord members have a total of 40% off on domain reserves when purchasing with SNTVT.
Client & Server NODE.JS Module Prototype with ALPHA release of UDSP - Client to server communication prototype that will allow fast prototyping of components for the network like the DIS.
A key component to the Universal Web is a replacement for the Domain Name System called the Domain Information System. Sentivate's DIS provides the cryptographic certificates from sites to the DIS as opposed to just the standard DNS info. The DIS responds with routing information & cryptographic parameters all in the form of a cryptographically verifiable domain certificate. This is a key function of the Universal Web. Those not familiar with the Minimalt papers we urge you to give them a read to better understand the issues with DNS and our solutions.
In order to establish cryptographic trust an Identity Registrar must be fully operational to protect against Sybil attacks and sign off on new identity certificates entering the network. When a client attempts to connect to a service via a 0-RTT encrypted handshake they must include their Identity Certificate. The first packet includes the IC so that the service can quickly compute a set of shared keys and establish a 0-RTT connection. For cryptographic info on the handshake process used read this.
Following the core Identity & Domain systems the browser becomes a priority. The Identity systems will be integrated into the browser in the form of profiles making it easy for everyone to use. There will be a huge focus on providing a new developer experience on the Universal Web. The browser is capable of viewing both the WWW & the UW. However, UW domains don't require the protocol information and all WWW sites must be HTTPS.
Full support for UW:// & local:// in electron. Using the latest electron version 6.
New front-end reactive components based on materialize fully functional for building hApps.
Finalized the front-end specification for Universal Web Sockets.
Chunking support added to the protocol for large files and streaming. The first major pillar for the protocol is splitting up large data into multiple packets to be re-assembled on the other side in the correct order.
Reliability algorithm base to ensure packets are received and connections are opened/closed. The next important feature for the protocol is packet reliability which is where the most bandwidth saving and optimizing can be done when comparing it to chatty TCP.
Congestion control the last major crucial element for the protocol will be added to the public repo. This marks a huge moment as it would ensure the main pillars of the protocol are in. The last crucial element for Universal Web Servers to function efficiently. We will have our soft launch of core Universal Web services in 2020.
We will be publishing several sites that are in other languages CN, KR, PL, RU, and UniversalWeb.io. This is focused on bringing SNTVT to other markets across the globe and to introduce it to other languages and countries. A new public deck is being released and private deck as the company has positioned itself to receive funding. We will also be releasing a new Sentivate community site found on social.sentivate.com
We will be announcing the start of the ambassador & advocate programs. We will also be opening public listings of SNTVT partnered companies that agree to setting up a property on the Universal Web upon official launch and reserve a domain. We will be announcing all public partnerships.
We will begin onboarding devs, companies, and building up the entire development process for UWApps. A search engine and a directory built to explore the initial Universal Web apps in operation.This will allow users to start exploring an Index of UWApps.
