The Keyhole Labs team is proud to announce that our Hyperledger Fabric API Gateway has been accepted into Hyperledger Labs.
Hyperledger® Labs is a community-based innovation space gathering people who share a common interest in developing blockchain-related software. Entrance into Hyperledger Labs allows Keyhole Fabric API Gateway to be further tested, innovated, and used by the wider Hyperledger community.
Hyperledger is hosted by The Linux Foundation. Keyhole has always been interested in promoting and supporting the open-source blockchain community. We are the official sponsor of Hyperledger Kansas City, a meetup group that hosts monthly, educational meetups. Join us at our next meetup!
About Keyhole Fabric API Gateway
The Keyhole Fabric API Gateway is an open-source tool that uses an API gateway implementation to provide access to Hyperledger Fabric (HLF) blockchain networks and its data. The gateway provides RESTful HTTP-based endpoints that access HLF network peers using the FABRIC-NODE-SDK. It is implemented with Node.js and uses the Express framework. Two types of API authentication validation schemes can be applied: token-based or session-based. Example implementations are provided for both.
