DoD on the Block: Update 1
About a year ago, I wrote about the Department of Defense's "DoD Digital Modernization Strategy" report and the agency's plan to explore how blockchain can make messaging more secure. Well, a contract was recently awarded to SIMBA Chain to develop a blockchain solution to improve the security, auditability and integration of the agency's research and development data. Specifically, SIMBA Chain has been given an opportunity to test out a blockchain that will enable various agencies to securely share R&D information with the ability to control and track access. With the DoD touching much of the R&D that is funded by federal government, there is a plenty of opportunity for bad actors. Blockchain will hopefully show that it's an effective way to limit and track access to sensitive information. Stay tuned!
Do you think blockchain will save the R&D day? Let me know what you think by shooting me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweeting me at @blockchainblawg.
