Suri's mission is to identify people in web3 in a decentralised and self-governed way, in order to facilitate authentication processes and increase the security in the web3 environment to bring web2 web2 companies and governments into the space.
Suri's vision is to become the global infrastructure provider for identity and authentication as well as the vehicle of interoperability across the web2 and web3 worlds.
The main advantages for users and companies from using suris and the SUNS infrastructure are:
- Decentralized, unrestricted suris: no domains will be banned or limited in its use, and ownership will be available to all users.
Our policy is to not ban any suri BUT brands noteworthy users or any other recognisable entity will be protected against bad uses of their names. Moreover, we will reserve the right to block suris that are used for illegal purposes.
- Global suris: not geographically limited. Forget about asking for permission to use a domain name in a region or being censored.
- Sovereign Identity provider: under a single suri, a user/company can register different data with multiple purposes: website links, social media profiles, crypto wallets, etc. This information is stored on-chain and in decentralised storage providers, therefore the data belongs to the users and only them can manage it.
- Interoperability: every web2 or web3 app can interact with the information and user base provided by SUNS without asking for permissions or entry fees. This will enable a new level of interoperability between users, between users and apps and inter apps.
- Protocols aggregation: every suri can expose information following specific standards or protocols allowing the aggregation of all them to build new business models. Examples of this can be e-commerce aggregators (like Amazon), technical protocols (like IPFS providers), etc.
- Single global signup: mostly every app requires to identity their users, store their personal information in a secured way, etc. With Suri, apps only need to authenticate their users in their platforms, the rest information is accessible and can be easily retrieved.
Suris are mainly designed to be used as identity providers, but this is fully compatible with internet navigation, so suris can also be used to navigate to websites or used as email providers, making SUNS a strong replacement of DNS in the mid/long term.
Some of the main differences that make SUNS a better choice for navigation are:
- Decentralised: the protocol is working fully on-chain, so there is no central authority (say goodbye to ICANN). Moreover, each parent will have the rights to manage its direct children, so neither we, Suri managers, have control over every (sub)suri.
- Open Top Level Domains (TLD): due to the lack of the technical restrictions imposed in DNS, first-level domains (e.g.
myName, ...) will be open to anyone to register. This will allow for a more open and decentralised internet.
- Payment models: user can pay their suris in different ways, being the most common case using an anual subscription model but also including fluid or on-demand payment models.
- Enhanced protocol support: DNS only supports some standard protocols, like IPv4, Email, etc. On the other side, SUNS have support for any present and future protocol without restrictions neither having to ask for permission.
- Full routing: forget about proxies. SUNS's resolution algorithm allows to route users to different services on different ports of the same machine without having to relay on expensive reverse proxies services.
- Load balancing: the protocol have built-in support for some balancing algorithms to distribute the load between different servers. Preventing the need to pay expensive services for that matter.
