美国国防部使用区块链来保护敏感数据

2020-5-14 15:29

 

昨天,SIMBA Chain宣布从美国国防部(DOD)获得一份价值20万美元的合同,部署其区块链解决方案,以保护敏感的研究和开发(R&D)数据。


该项目名为“可审计军事飞地数据访问真实性账簿”(ALAMEDA),将于下个月开始,一直持续到2020年9月。区块链解决方案将使政府机构能够安全地共享文档和科学数据集,并能够控制和跟踪访问权限。


国防部在联邦研发基金中获得了近40%的最大份额,它为4000名用户管理着大约450万份文件。使用区块链,国防部的目标是提高集成,安全性,可审核性,并控制访问这一关键数据。ALAMEDA试图开发一个单独的系统,通过利用现有的存储库来共享这些敏感的文档,同时保持数据的完整性和真实性。


“信息流动的增强意味着重大的安全风险。因此,需要复杂的区块链解决方案来验证和记录用户,消除第三方的不良行为,并允许可信源之间的安全直接连接,”SIMBA Chain的首席执行官Joel Neidig说。


目前的合同是针对一期工程的。根据结果,国防部可能会为SIMBA的第二阶段再奖励100万美元。


SIMBA Chain成立于2017年,提供区块链解决方案,包括基于云的智能合同作为服务平台,允许企业创建去中心化应用(Dapps)。辛巴与美国政府机构有着长期的合作关系,它是由美国国防部高级研究计划局(DARPA)资助给圣母大学(University of Notre Dame)计算机系和印第安纳州技术与制造公司的。


从那时起,辛巴链已经取得了长足的进步,并与美国海军和空军合作。几个月前,该公司获得了150万美元的种子融资。一个月后,它与美国海军签订了一份价值950万美元的合同。


它的智能合同解决方案目前支持Ethereum、Quorum、Stellar、RSK、Hyperledger Fabric和Hyperledger Burrow,并计划增加更多。

 

Yesterday, SIMBA Chain announced it received a $200,000 contract from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) to deploy its blockchain solution for securing sensitive research and development (R&D) data. 

Called the Authenticity Ledger for Auditable Military Enclaved Data Access (ALAMEDA), the project will begin next month and run through September 2020. The blockchain solution will enable government agencies to securely share documents and scientific datasets with the ability to control and track who gets access. 

The DOD receives the lion’s share in federal R&D funding at nearly 40%, and it manages about 4.5 million documents for 4,000 users. Using blockchain, the DOD aims to improve integration, security, auditability, and controlled access of this critical data. ALAMEDA seeks to develop a single system for sharing these sensitive documents by leveraging existing repositories while maintaining the integrity and authenticity of the data. 

“The enhanced flow of information represents a significant security risk. Hence the need for sophisticated blockchain solutions that authenticate and document users, eliminate third party bad actors, and otherwise allow secure direct connections between trusted sources,” said Joel Neidig, CEO of SIMBA Chain.

The current award is for a Phase 1 project. Based on the outcome the DOD may award SIMBA another $1 million for Phase 2. 

Founded in 2017, SIMBA Chain offers blockchain solutions including a cloud-based smart contract as a service platform, allowing enterprises to create decentralized applications (Dapps). SIMBA has a long-standing relationship with U.S. government agencies, and it was borne out of a DARPA grant to the computing department of the University of Notre Dame and Indiana Technology and Manufacturing Companies. 

Since then, SIMBA Chain has come a long way and has worked with the U.S. Navy and Air Force. A few months ago, the company secured $1.5 million in a seed financing round. A month later it landed a $9.5 million contract with the U.S. Navy.  

Its smart contract solution currently supports Ethereum, Quorum, Stellar, RSK, Hyperledger Fabric, and Hyperledger Burrow, with plans to add more.
