Microsoft has submitted two new applications to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the use of the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) in future blockchain solutions. This is reported by Coindesk.
According to patents, TEE is listed in the role of code in the node-validator, predetermined by the type of blockchain or other security protocol. In this form, certification based on TEE will be able to verify the participants in the system who own the same information as the nodes.
As indicated in the first patent, this solution will find use in blockchain consortiums. In particular, the first node will store the list of members of the association among another block of information, and TEE will monitor the safe inclusion of new members in the "consortium network."
In the second application, Microsoft said that the solution based on TEE will help in verification of transactions in the blockchain, where the authorized network is the authorized group of persons.
With the TEE-certification process, some transactions can be processed and confirmed without the need for decryption before further transmission on the network.
According to the developers, thanks to the innovation, the network will be able to accept transactions and directly update the structure of the block.
