Content Integrity

Content integrity refers to the accuracy and consistency (validity) of content over its lifecycle in Swarm storage. Integrity can be lost at various levels:

  • Human error or tampering

  • Transfer errors, including unintended alterations or data compromise going to or from storage

  • Cyber threats (bugs, viruses/malware, hacking)

  • Compromised hardware, such as a device or disk crash

  • Physical compromise to devices

Best practices for content integrity include multiple approaches:

  • Input validation, to preclude the entering of invalid data

  • Error detection/data validation, to identify errors in data transmission

  • Security measures, such as access control and data encryption
