The MaidSafe network is an open-source, decentralised, autonomous network for data storage and retrieval by end user applications. All data is stored on the network within vaults, which are member nodes of a self-managed network resembling a distributed hash table (DHT). We explore the design of the vault network, including the self-managing nature of both vaults and data, and attack vectors worth consideration and further research.
