The Internet Computer Protocol is a new generation blockchain that aims to provide better security and scalability than the traditional blockchain solutions. In this paper, this innovative distributed computing architecture is introduced, modeled and then simulated by means of an agent-based simulation. The result is a digital twin of the current Internet Computer, to be exploited to drive future design and development optimizations, investigate its performance, and evaluate the resilience of this distributed system to some security attacks. Preliminary performance measurements on the digital twin and simulation scalability results are collected and discussed. The study also confirms that agent-based simulation is a prominent simulation strategy to develop digital twins of complex distributed systems.

Abstract

The Internet Computer Protocol is a new generation blockchain that aims to provide better security and scalability than the traditional blockchain solutions. In this paper, this innovative distributed computing architecture is introduced, modeled and then simulated by means of an agent-based simulation. The result is a digital twin of the current Internet Computer, to be exploited to drive future design and development optimizations, investigate its performance, and evaluate the resilience of this distributed system to some security attacks. Preliminary performance measurements on the digital twin and simulation scalability results are collected and discussed. The study also confirms that agent-based simulation is a prominent simulation strategy to develop digital twins of complex distributed systems.
