Description

Distributed storage systems (DSS) have a potential of storing big amounts of data. Specialized DSS codes were defined with the main idea to enhance the reliability, availability, maintenance and data security in DSS systems. In this paper, we establish a new way of communication, named Distributed Communication Channel (DCC), that uses the coding mechanism that is similar to the one applied in the DSS. DCC represents a communication channel between two or more parties, that exchange information through multiple physical channels. It adapts the DSS concept using the benefits established with respect to the communication reliability and security against intruders and attacks. Moreover, with this concept we offer an increased security using the recent developments used in the Blockchain technology. The blockchain is used as a tool to securely bypass the transformation matrix or the exchange of encryption keys, between the sender and the receiver in the communication channel. The whole system uses the so-called spatial spreading mechanism to transfer the data through independent channels. Therefore, it is more reliable and secure, than the basic systems using the DSS algorithm.
