Blockchain has been planned to be deployed between units and headquarters as well as intelligence officers and the Pentagon.

As per a report published on July 12 titled Digital Modernization Strategy, the U.S Department of Defense (DoD) is planning to form a blockchain cybersecurity shield and has already chalked out ways to advance the nation’s digital defenses. These ways include the integration of cloud and quantum computing, artificial intelligence, and improved communications through distributed ledgers.

As it has been reported, DARPA, the research wing of the Department, has already started with its experimentation with the technology “to create a more efficient, robust, and secure platform,” to secure messaging and process transactions.

Blockchain has been planned to be deployed between units and headquarters as well as intelligence officers and the Pentagon. Being a part of the Digital Identity Management program, the agency is also likely to issue a digital token that authenticates an agent’s identity.

The department is also trying its hands on the technology to facilitate the creation of an unhackable code to secure its databases. The department is also bringing in new hardware and cryptographic systems in order to overcome the challenges of the improved computing power of the nation’s adversaries.

As part of the Big Data Platform (BDP), DoD is also making a move from “low value to high-value work”. This will also involve handling petabytes of data involved in a number of cross-agency projects. The platform “provides the ability to perform aggregation, correlation, historical trending,” and may perform pattern recognition to “predict attacks.”
