Core Chameleon is a plugin for all blockchains powered by ARK Core and is designed to protect nodes from attackers in the following ways:
Hides your IP address: All communications use Tor so the server IP address is never revealed to other nodes, nor does it appear in peer lists. This means nodes cannot be targeted in cyber attacks against the network.
Closes the P2P port: The public P2P port is closed to prevent denial-of-service attacks. If a node operator also closes other ports such as the API, webhook and RPC servers, the presence of ARK Core will be completely stealthed. This can give operators peace of mind as they cannot be targets of socio-abuse or technical attacks.
Firewall compatibility: Some users may find themselves stuck behind a restrictive corporate firewall but still need to run a full node properly which is normally impossible with ARK Core since they cannot sync with the network in real time, nor can they receive transactions. By installing this plugin, they will instead look and feel like normal nodes, immediately receiving blocks and transactions in real time.
Run multiple conflicting networks: Each network uses a hardcoded port for P2P traffic which cannot be changed, so it is impossible for the same IP address to reliably run a node for two networks that use the same port. This plugin eliminates that barrier, allowing servers to run multiple networks that would otherwise clash, all at the same time.
