I want to propose RFC, hopefully, not to write it because I’m too lazy, but the idea is very simple in a few words.
Make a simple tunnelling app on top of the platform like with ssh tunnelling to direct to arbitrary de-facto ports in a server.
I know that SAFE network is dedicated to get rid of servers, however, services running behind a tunnel would be a lot more secure than today’s servers, for the following reasons:
- Nobody has a clue what physical machine serves the port
- Port would not be even seen in the outside world
- Different safe network id’s could be used for different services (don’t have n ports exposed on one id)
- (HUUGE) Any standard server side app that was written or will be written could be plugged in into SAFE network seamlessly.
What do you think?
