Overview
Modular Blockchain Platform, released by Hyperledger and championed by Intel.

Generic, open-source,  blockchain based distributed computing platform for applications to be built upon.
Corda is a distributed ledger platform designed to record, manage and automate legal agreements between business partners. Designed by (and for) the worlds largest financial institutions yet with applications in multiple industries. It offers a unique response to the privacy and scalability challenges facing decentralised applications.

  Security  
  •  
Security model
SGX / PoET

All transactions are signed by known identities.
No data encryption or channel partition and is public.

Merkle Patricia Trie Data structure
Data is only shared between parties involved in the transaction, verifiers, and permissioned observers. This allows an extra layer of security from traditional DLT where the data is spread throughout the network.
  •  
Permissions
Permissioned, Permissionless depending on application
Permissionless
  •  
Privacy
Configrable permissions for any node cluster within the network
Limited (zk-SNARKs, Ring signatures)
Privacy concerns are addressed through the pluggable uniqueness services, and restriction of viewing transactions.
  Algorithms

Blockchain / DLT type
Federated / Consortium, Permissioned Network
Public with Private Forks
Not a blockchain. Uses DLT to create transaction efficiencies between permissioned parties rather than the same ledger for the entire network, which R3 Corda believes is inefficient.
  •  
Modularity
Modular Architecture. Incorporates IoT Sensors that can broaden the use case.
Generic, with DApp and Smart Contract support for wider applications
Less focus on modularity
  •  
Scalability
1000 TPS. Built to be scalable in the way that consensus algorithms can be changed, applications are separate from the core system, and transactions can occur in parallel.
limited by PoW

currently supports a maximum of 15 TPS
Corda focuses on scaling through reducing inefficiencies in consensus mechanisms. By limiting involvement to just the transacting parties, beneficiaries, and verifiers it aims to position itself as more scalable than PoW
