MAM Lite — a more flexible messaging protocol for IOTA

Introduction Masked Authenticated Messaging (MAM), a genius protocol described by Paul Handy, is one of IOTA’s most potent IXI Modules. Thanks to the design and feeless nature of the Tangle, it opens up many new use cases. The objective of information security is to guarantee confidentiality, availability and data integrity. These features are prerequisite for things like traffic networking (eg. V2X), verifiable supply chains, over-the-air updates and much more. Masked Authenticated Messaging is therefore super…
