Hyperledger Besu for private networks
You can use Besu to develop enterprise applications requiring secure, high-performance transaction processing in a private network.
A private network is a network not connected to Ethereum Mainnet or an Ethereum testnet. Private networks typically use a different chain ID and proof of authority consensus (QBFT, IBFT 2.0, or Clique).
You can also create a local development network using proof of work (Ethash).
Get started with the Developer Quickstart to rapidly generate local blockchain networks.
The following diagram outlines the high-level architecture of Besu for private networks.
