Security
Security model
No data encryption or channel partition and is public.

Merkle Patricia Trie Data structure
SGX / PoET

All transactions are signed by known identities.
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
Privacy
Limited (zk-SNARKs, Ring signatures)
Configrable permissions for any node cluster within the network
Privacy concerns are addressed through the pluggable uniqueness services, and restriction of viewing transactions.
Algorithms
Consensus
PoET
Dynamic, Pluggable Consensus Algorithms
Notaries - Pluggable Framework, Validity consensus and Uniqueness consensus

Proprietary Codebase
General
Blockchain / DLT type
Public with Private Forks
Federated / Consortium, Permissioned Network
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
Generic, with DApp and Smart Contract support for wider applications
Modular Architecture. Incorporates IoT Sensors that can broaden the use case.
Less focus on modularity
Scalability
limited by PoW

currently supports a maximum of 15 TPS
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.
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
