The Cognida Network delivers enterprise tools for securing digital assets by leveraging Blockchain Technology

Project stage

Beta version

Detailed description

Cognida™ delivers trusted blockchain solutions that address the increasingly complex information sharing challenges that enterprises face by allowing them to incorporate decentralized blockchain security features into their existing systems for external and internal sharing of data. 

The Cognida Network™ and its open source platform enable enterprises to more securely manage connected devices, systems and shared information using blockchain agnostic technology. 

Cognida's Service Interfaces secure digital assets on the network, enabling enterprise IT administrators to enforce their security policies and establish trusted connected relationships, owning and controlling their data, even when sharing with service providers and third parties. 

Enterprises can leverage Cognida’s Service Network Interface to connect to trusted service networks where they can administer third-party cloud services from a single interface, enabling administrators to manage privacy, access, and security of their data on remote systems through a unified platform. 

As enterprises adopt new distributed technologies, the data landscape is evolving away from centralized services maintained behind corporate firewalls to a complex distributed landscape. This trend has corporate data scattered across devices and services outside the enterprises’ administrative control. 


  • Blockchains are inherently anonymous and their transactions are performed in a trustless manner which is incongruent with enterprise security policies which require known and trusted services and transactions on their network. 
  • Services and ledger data are decentralized and distributed across anonymous locations. Enterprise security traditionally uses centralized security with equipment located in known locations. 
  • Enterprise security administration is done in a hierarchical fashion. Administrators and managers have varying levels of access and control within the enterprise. Blockchain security is not natively hierarchical. While existing smart contract technologies address some of these challenges, they are difficult to map to complex security policies found within enterprises.


The Cognida Platform, which has been developed by Windmill Enterprise, solves these disconnects by enabling enterprises to benefit from the advantages of existing blockchain technology to address their growing security and privacy challenges. The Cognida Platform will be released to the open source Cognida Foundation at the launch of the Cognida Service Network.


  • Blockchain Agnostic:
    • Enterprises will not have to choose one blockchain with the built-in compatibilities
    • Cognida delivers standardized security APIs for interaction with multiple blockchains 
    • Blockchain portability allows migration between blockchains or the ability to utilize multiple blockchains
    •  Built-in optimized interoperability allows best possible utilizations of different blockchains 
  • Distributed Permissions:
    • Removes a single point of failure by using distributed blockchains that have immutable properties
    • Allows multiple stakeholders the capability of interacting and retrieving data
  • Trusted relationships:
    • Ledger data is anonymized and unreadable outside trusted stakeholders 
  • Secure Interaction with Service Providers:
    • Enables third-party services to address volatile cryptocurrencies associated with Blockchains to offer predictable cost structures
    • Single-payment interface across multiple vendors and services 
  • Familiar Administration Functionality:
    • Supports administration hierarchies common in enterprises
    • Delivers extensive permission and access controls critical to securing cloud services 
    • Enables enterprise to manage permissions more effciently across all remote locations
