Blockchain, as an emerging information technology, can transmits trusted data in untrusted networks. As a overlay network, blockchain based network can be used to construct low-cost distributed networks. It has the characteristics of non-destructive and transparent transmission. Blockchain based network architecture can be divided into: infrastructure layer, network layer, transport layer and application layer, and it has the potential changing the network security paradigm and the existing Internet operating mode. But as an immature technology, the blockchain network still faces great challenge in information security, privacy protection and communication bandwidth.
