- LayerZero has partnered with Google Cloud to integrate enhanced security into its messaging infrastructure.
- Google Cloud Oracle will verify message validity, similar to HTTPS certificates for websites.
- Users can choose additional security options like PolyhedraZK, offering a modular security approach in the blockchain industry.
The development that began almost a year ago is now at a magnanimous end as LayerZero has announced its partnership with Google Cloud. The Google Cloud oracle has now been integrated for enhanced security at LayerZero’s messaging infrastructure. So, what exactly does this collaboration entail, and what should readers know? Well, let’s find out!
Google Cloud Integration
The Google Cloud oracle is expected to function as a verifier within LayerZero, and its role will be to ensure message validity. From September 19th, every message within the LayerZero infrastructure will be run by Google Cloud. These settings will now be, by default, a part of the system. Additionally, users must know that the role of Google Cloud Oracle in this partnership is to serve as HTTPS for cross-chain messaging. Similar to the verification of HTTPS certificates for the validity of a website, the Google Cloud Oracle will now be verifying all LayerZero messages.
Moreover, the platform believes that the modular security approach is a high-end one for users. Therefore, users can opt to use other verifying parties like PolyhedraZK for added security, along with Google Cloud Oracle.
The impact of this integration is indeed going to be profound for not just LayerZero but the entire blockchain industry as well. Since users will have the option to construct the security stack that best suits their needs. As a more secure messaging layer for the entire industry continues to be built, let’s see how the world of technological innovation improves for one and all.
