Ontology Nodes

Queries regarding Ontology nodes

What is a whitelist in the context of the Ontology node network?

The official seed nodes of the node network are considered to be a part of the whitelist.

So as to avoid synchronizing the data on a node with other nodes that may have been compromised, or are unsafe in any manner, a node can always choose to synchronize with the official whitelisted seed nodes of Ontology.

This can be achieved by using the following command when synchronizing a node-

./ontology --reservedfile=./peers.rsv --reservedonly

Here, the peers.rsv file contains the whitelist details.
