1. Description

This repository contains the Thaler Experimental Network code (pre-pivoted Chain). The current repository consists of the following Rust sub-crates:

4. Documentation

Technical documentation can be found in this Github repository (you can read it in this hosted version.

5. Build full node

1. Docker image

$ docker build -t crypto-chain:latest .

Docker build arguments:

    • HW: SGX hardware mode, default.
    • SW: SGX software simulation mode.
  • NETWORK_ID: Network HEX Id of Tendermint, default: AB.
    • debug: debug mode.
    • release: release mode, default.
    • sgx: default.
    • mock: A simulation mode only for development on non-sgx platform, don't use in production.

2. Makefile

$ make build

It builds in docker container, the result binaries reside in local directory, it runs something like:

$ docker run --rm -v `pwd`:/chain cryptocom/chain:latest run_build_scripts

The result binary is built for the docker container environment, may not runnable locally.

The makefile supports other commands too:

$ make help
	prepare                prepare the environment
	image                  build the docker image
	build                  just build the chain and enclave binaery in docker
	run-sgx                docker run sgx-validation and a sgx-query container
	run-chain              docker run chain-abci, tendermint and client-rpc container
	stop-all               docker stop all the container
	start-all              docker start all the container
	restart-all            docker restart all the container
	rm-all                 remove all the docker container
	clean                  clean all the temporary files while compiling
	clean-data             remove all the data in data_path

3. Linux native (Ubuntu 18.04)


  • intel sgx sdk (Set environment variable SGX_SDK to the sdk directory)
  • rust toolchain nightly-2019-11-25 (you can install with rustup)
$ apt-get install -y \
    cmake \
    libgflags-dev \
    libzmq3-dev \
    pkg-config \
$ ./docker/

All the executables and signed enclave libraries will reside in ./target/debug.

Environment variables mentioned in the docker image building section also apply here.

4. Develop with mock mode on non-sgx platform (e.g. mac)


6. Start a Local Full Node

Please follow the instruction to deploy a local full node.

7. Send Your First Transaction

Kindly refer to this instruction to perform transactions between addresses.

8. Testing

You can run the unit tests and integration tests with drone-cli on sgx platform:

$ cat > .drone.secret << EOF
$ drone exec --trusted \
    --include build \
    --include unit-tests \
    --include integration-tests \
    --include multinode-tests

Kindly refer to Prepare SPID & KEY to obtain the values of SPID and IAS_API_KEY.
