亚马逊,IBM支持的白皮书探索了美国国防部的区块链应用

2020-5-22 13:02

 

昨天,美国美国非盈利价值技术基金会发布了一份研究美国国防部使用区块链的报告。


这份题为《美国国防部对区块链的潜在用途》的报告由国防部承包商共同撰写,其中包括埃森哲、亚马逊、德勤、CGI Federal和IBM,以及区块链公司的“同意系统”、SIMBA Chain和Colvin Run Networks。国会议员达伦·索托支持这份白皮书。


科技公司Value Technology发表的这份报告提到了网络安全威胁,这可能会削弱美国在全球经济和军事领域的主导地位。


“网络战可能已经成为美国国家安全的最大威胁。现在,美国比以往任何时候都更需要对区块链等防御技术的主要研究和开发进行实质性投资。他曾在数字商务和共识系统商会工作。


该报告讨论了将区块链作为多因素身份验证的一部分,以提高军事系统的安全性。在无法阻止网络攻击的情况下,使用区块链进行日志记录至少会留下一条用于检测的线索。


SIMBA Chain和startup Fluree的共同作者之一获得了区块链合同,分别用于保障与美国海军和美国空军的国防通信。


另一个重点领域是零部件采购,这需要严格审查,以确保已批准的设计已被使用。2018年,彭博社发布了一份有争议的报告,称中国隐藏间谍芯片,以侵入一些美国最大的企业。


去年,国防部授予MacAulay Brown和iCAMR合同,以避免芯片篡改和保护关键任务系统。


Value Technology公司表示,美国海军可以在航母上使用区块链打印3d部件。此前,辛巴·钱恩曾与美国空军合作,以确保3d打印设计不被篡改。该公司还在为美国海军开发一种基于区块链的航空零部件跟踪系统。


虽然这是国防供应链的一个应用程序,但其他供应,如食品或备件,是从第三方采购的。有假冒材料进入供应链和食品污染的风险,这可能会影响国防行动。Value Technology公司表示,区块链可以通过核实商品来源和保护食品供应来提高供应链安全。


该组织将自己定位为专注于美国和其他开放自由社会的分布式账本技术(DLT)的智库。

 

Yesterday, the U.S.-based non-profit Value Technology Foundation published a report studying the use of blockchain for the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). 

The report titled ‘Potential Uses of Blockchain By The U.S. Department of Defense’ has been co-authored by DOD contractors including Accenture, Amazon, Deloitte, CGI Federal, and IBM, with blockchain firms ConsenSys, SIMBA Chain, and Colvin Run Networks. Congressman Darren Soto endorses the whitepaper. 

Value Technology published the report citing cybersecurity threats, which could reduce U.S. dominance in the global economic and military spheres. 

“Cyber warfare has become perhaps the greatest threat to American national security. Now, more than ever, the United States must make a material investment into primary research and development for defensive technologies such as blockchain,” said Jason Brett, former U.S. regulator and CEO and Founder of Value Technology Foundation. He previously worked at the Chamber of Digital Commerce and ConsenSys.

The report talks about leveraging blockchain as part of multi-factor authentication for better security of military systems. Where cyberattacks are not prevented, using blockchain for logging at least leaves a trail for detection.

One of the co-authors SIMBA Chain as well as startup Fluree were awarded blockchain contracts for securing defense communications with the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Air Force respectively.

Another area of focus is parts procurement, which requires strict vetting to make sure that approved designs have been used. In 2018, Bloomberg published a disputed report that China hid spy chips to hack into some of the biggest U.S. enterprises. 

Last year, the DOD awarded contracts to MacAulay Brown and iCAMR to avoid chip tampering and protect mission-critical systems. 

Value Technology says the U.S. Navy could use blockchain for 3-D printing parts on the Aircraft Carrier itself. Previously, SIMBA Chain worked with the U.S. Air Force to ensure that 3-D printing designs are not tampered with. The firm is also developing a blockchain-based aviation parts tracking system for the U.S. Navy. 

While this is one application for the defense supply chains, other supplies, such as food or spare parts, are sourced from third parties. There is a risk of counterfeit materials entering the supply chain and contamination of food, which could affect defense operations. Value Technology says blockchain could increase supply chain security by verifying the provenance of goods and protecting the food supply. 

The organization positions itself as a think tank focused on distributed ledger technology (DLT) in the U.S. and other open, free societies.
