美国空军利用区块链初创公司帮助保护武器数据

2020-2-7 12:14


美国空军现在正在使用区块链数据管理公司可以安全、快速地与军队其他部门共享信息。


区块链创业公司Fluree今天宣布,美国空军将使用其分散的数据库来跟踪信息是如何进入其系统的,以及谁可以访问它。这将使空军更容易与其他军事部门共享信息——包括美军内部和海外盟友。Fluree的联合首席执行官Brian Platz告诉Decrypt, Fluree的技术也将有助于快速确定数据库中信息的完整性。


Fluree使用了它所称的“智能功能”(公司自己对智能契约的理解),当数据发生变化时,就会触发代码。smart函数确保请求更改的人被授权这样做,并且更改符合模式。


所有这一切都建立在一个分散的账本上。“就像你可以证明一个比特币账户地址在某个时间点进行了交易,我们可以证明每条信息是如何进入系统的,”Platz说。他解释说,通过这种方式,数据“比典型的数据库具有更大的完整性,而典型的数据库并不真正知道数据是如何获得的,也不知道它是否具有完整性。”


Platz提供了一个例子:“这些国家中有许多共享相同的军事装备和作战装备,”他说。例如,F35战斗机在几个不同的国家被使用,新的系统可以被用来与其他部门安全快速地“共享操作信息、维护信息和部件信息”。


如果一架飞机出现了严重的安全问题,而美国空军想要提醒某人,“我们怎么知道是谁报告的?”我的意思是,可能有人怀着恶意试图报告错误信息。”

 

Fluree于2016年由Platz和共同创始人Flip Filipowski创立,总部位于北卡罗来纳州的温斯顿-塞勒姆。Platz说,它在圣诞节前后赢得了合同,并将在2020年完成。今年6月,该公司在一轮由4490 Ventures牵头的种子融资中筹集了470万美元。


该系统的多用途:以前的工作包括为印度毕业生创建一个区块链数据库,以打击欺诈性学位。即将实施的项目包括与美国主要医院系统合作,以及与美国能源部合作。美国空军与区块链数据管理公司Fluree签署了一份合同,以在军队中更安全地跟踪和共享信息。

 

The US Air Force is now working with a blockchain data management company to securely and quickly share information with other departments in the military.

 

Blockchain startup Fluree announced today that the US Air Force will use its decentralized database to keep track of how information enters its system, and who has access to it. This will make it easier for the Air Force to share information with other military departments—both within the US military and with its allies abroad. Fluree’s tech will also help to quickly determine the integrity of a piece of information in the database, Fluree co-CEO Brian Platz told Decrypt.

 

Fluree uses what it calls “smart functions” (the company’s own take on smart contracts), where code is triggered upon data changes. The smart function ensures that the person requesting the change is authorized to do so, and that the change fits the schema.

 

All this on the security of a decentralized ledger. “Just like you can prove an account address in Bitcoin made a transaction at some point in time, we can prove how every piece of information got into the system,” said Platz. This way, he explained, the data “has an immense amount more integrity than say a typical database where you don't really know how the data got in there and you don't know if this has any integrity.”

 

Platz offered an example: “Many of these countries share the same military equipment and operational equipment,” he said. For instance, F35 fighter jets are used in several different countries, and the new system could be used to securely and quickly “share operational information, maintenance information [and] parts information” with other departments.

 

If there’s a critical safety issue about a piece of aircraft, and the Air Force wants to alert someone, “how do we know the origins of who's even reporting that? I mean, it could be someone with malicious intent trying to report erroneous information,” said Platz.

 

 

Fluree was founded in 2016 by Platz and co-founder Flip Filipowski, and is headquartered in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It won the contract around Christmas, said Platz, and will work on it throughout 2020. In June, it raised $4.7 million in a seed round, led by 4490 Ventures.

 

The system’s versatile: previous work includes creating a blockchain database for Indian graduates to combat fraudulent degrees. Forthcoming projects include working with major hospital systems in the United States, and work with the US Department of Energy.The US Air Force has signed a contract with blockchain data management company Fluree to more securely track and share information within the military.
