The Keyhole Labs team is excited to announce that our Byzantine Config 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 Byzantine Config to be further tested, innovated, and used by the wider Hyperledger community.
Hyperledger is hosted by The Linux Foundation. Keyhole is a proponent of promoting the open source blockchain community, which is why it is also the official sponsor of Hyperledger Kansas City hosting monthly learning meetups. Join us at the next meetup!
About Byzantine Config
Byzantine Config is a GUI-based executable application that allows Hyperledger Fabric (HLF) configuration blocks to be viewed and any updated transactions created for channel configuration, adding new organizations, and generating crypto material.

Why Use Byzantine Config?
Updating a Hyperledger Fabric network configuration and adding/updating organizations requires a configuration block to be defined, signed and then executed as an update config transaction. Doing this manually with CLI tools can be complex and cumbersome.
Byzantine Config provides an executable GUI application that greatly simplifies updating and adding Organizations. It essentially automates the manual process using the CLI tools cryptogen and configtxlator.
With it, users can connect to a HLF network, current configuration will be displayed which can then be edited or new organizations added. Also, crypto material for new organizations will be generated. A correctly-formatted update transaction protocol buffer file will be produce that can then be executed as an update transaction in order to update the network.
