By default, each participant in a privacy network uses its own Hyperledger Besu and Orion node.

Orion supports multi-tenancy by allowing multiple participants in a privacy network to use the same Besu and Orion node. Configure multi-tenancy in Besu.


Ensure the multi-tenant Orion node client API is configured to allow access only by the multi-tenant Besu node. Access to your data is secured through Besu using multi-tenancy mode.

If not configured to allow access only by the multi-tenant Besu node, other Orion clients including other Besu nodes may be able to access tenant data.

You can use TLS with the whitelist trust mode to secure access.
