DARPA Seeks Blockchain Messaging System for Battlefield Use
A major US defense agency devoted to advanced R&D is seeking to create a secure-blockchain-based messaging system.
The DoD thinks blockchain can help authenticate its agents, secure interagency communication, and handle petabytes of data to predict attacks.
The U.S. Defense Logistics Agency says blockchain technology has "enormous" potential to improve disaster relief efforts.
The D.C.-based Value Technology Association helped lead the charge in requiring the U.S. Department of Defense to consider the benefits of blockchain technology.
The US Navy will run a blockchain trial this summer – a test largely aimed to boost the security of its manufacturing systems.
The US should promote investments in blockchain as part of a broader fight against cyberthreats, a former Defense Department official has said.
