Community managed software security model
A community driven, open source, low coding, distributed software model is, imo, next step. However, it inherently lacks security in a traditional sense. Here's one way to address that issue
The traditional closed source software model introduces proprietary boundaries to assure code security. Unfortunately, those proprietors proved untrustworthy, as expected due to lack of transparency. The open source model solves the problem of transparency and creativity, allowing sharing and evolution of ideas. However, it introduces the problem of running untrusted code on your computer, potentially compromising personal private data. How can we address this issue? As an example, npm, node.js registry has this problem. There's been many packages containing malicious code. Granted, it's discovered over time, but is there a better model not to allow this to happen at all. The problem becomes much worse for a registry of low code software, created by non devs, by a wider community. The potential of such a system is revolutionary, but not if security issues are addressed at the very start. Here's my proposal. A system of peer review, where a pool of reviewers examines each published module. Suppose this registry exists on blockchain where each published module is traded, but not before it is approved. The reviewers are part of the economy, getting paid for their services, adding to the cost of usage. What if wait for a review is too long? There's a testnet, where you can use your own module, within the network of trusted collaborators and users. You will have access to all vetted community modules on mainnet but your module will not be available to others. You will be charged storage and usage fees but won't be able to generate any coins to compensate. Any new version of a module will be jailed to testnet till reviewed. What about quality of reviewers and their reviews? It's not perfect, as nothing ever is. However, the reviwer community is the solution. A reputation system and some entry barriers would be useful. An example is stack overflow. Simply, takes a community to help a community.
