US Defense Dept. to Experiment With Blockchain-Based Security
The United States Department of Defense (DoD) is pursuing blockchain solutions for cybersecurity as part of its digital modernization strategy.
According to the report, the DoD’s research branch, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is currently engaged in at least two exploratory blockchain projects focused on cybersecurity.
The organization also noted that there were potentially valuable use cases for blockchain in data storage, saying:
“Technologies for distributed consensus protocols have been revolutionized by their prominent role in cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies. "
As reported by Cointelegraph, DARPA previously announced plans to host a two-day blockchain workshop in February.
