Codenotary’s immudb First Immutable Open Source Database to be FedRAMP Compliant
HOUSTON, October 17, 2022 — immudb, the only immutable enterprise-scale database with cryptographic verification, today added FIPS 140-2 compliant cryptography support, meeting Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) requirements, as well as a huge performance boost and synchronous replication – providing high availability.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that promotes the adoption of secure cloud services across the federal government by providing a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
“We’ve achieved a 1080% performance increase with this latest release of immudb which can handle millions of transactions per second and serve as a high performance alternative to blockchains and other ledger technologies,” said Dennis Zimmer, co-founder and chief technology officer at Codenotary, the primary contributor to the immudb open source project. “We are seeing rapid adoption with 15 million downloads and have more than doubled the number of GitHub stars over the past year to nearly 8,000.”

Equally important, immudb now adds synchronous real-time replication that provides high availability, along with new software development kits (SDK) for languages such as Java, node.js, Python, Go and .NET.
Unlike other databases, immudb is built on a zero-trust model: history is preserved and can’t be changed. Data in immudb comes with cryptographic verification at every transaction to ensure there is no tampering possible. immudb can be deployed in cluster configurations on-premises or in the cloud for demanding applications that require high scalability, up to billions of transactions per day, and high availability. The support of both key-value along with SQL makes it simple to use immudb in new and existing applications. Support for Amazon’s S3 storage cloud provides immudb with virtually unlimited data storage capacity. With immudb’s Time Travel feature, organizations can travel back and forth in time and see the change history of their data.
immudb is capable of protecting sensitive data for workloads that require the utmost in security. Codenotary uses immudb to underpin its software supply chain security product.
