Nebula Private Physical Network Development Platform
What is Nebula?
Nebula Private Physical Network (PPN) allows for the creation and maintenance of a private, physically independent networks without the use of a cloud or 3rd party service. All network functions and traffic, including data monitoring, is controlled and owned by the creator of the PPN. All traffic within a PPN is fully encrypted. A single device can be a member of multiple PPNs, and users do not need to create specific usernames or passwords to use the PPN.
Why Have a PPN?
It is your data; you should control how it is used and where it is stored. With Nebula, no cloud service or third party hosting services are required to manage your smart devices. Each of your own devices mange themselves and what other devices they connect to. All data resides only on the physical devices you allow. This puts you in control of how your devices are controlled and how data captured on the devices is accessed and managed.
How Does Nebula Work?
Nebula has two major components: the Nebula Hub, which allows any device to serve as the PPN hub, and turns that device into the 'server'. Nebula Applications are then run in the PPN and operate like any other cloud-based application. Users or device makers can install Nebula Hub to provide the ability to setup a PPN, while users can download various Nebula apps to provide network functionality, such as messanging or video streaming. Nebula operates as a web services platform but unlike REST no associated HTML or XML code is used. Devices are tracked through a block-chain like distributed database.
