Validating DHT

A DHT where every node executes consistent validation rules on data before propagating that data.

Validation

Confirming that data is valid according to the shared rules of a holochain network. Validation is done before data is committed to honest source chains, and again every time it is shared to an honest DHT participant. Invalid data is not committed locally but is stored if it is broadcast to the network.

Validation Rules

Rules that define what data can be committed to honest source chains and what data can propagate to the DHT.
