Every Instruction loaded into Tachyon has an implicit risk when applied to a network, some Instructions carry more risk than others.

One way of mitigating the risks could be to define Instruction sets that organize the Instructions according to their perceived risk. You could then define varying levels of access to the Instruction sets according to their associated risk.

For example the quarantine Instructions, available on the Tachyon Exchange, are for use in high-impact emergency scenarios, the way that these instructions work carries a fair degree of risk whereby devices are isolated from the network - which is appropriate for emergency use, however you may not want those Instructions to be generally available. To implement this you could create a High Security Instruction set to contain those Instructions, as well as any others you feel have a similar risk, and then lock down access to the Instruction set to suitable roles in the organization.

In this tutorial we will demonstrate:
