Blockchain for Security Sector: From Encrypted Messaging to Critical Fire Systems

Governments, law enforcement agencies and even military leadership around the world seem to be embracing a more blockchain-friendly way of thinking as they realize that the power of distributed ledger technology (DLT) could be harnessed to advance their goals in numerous ways. This generates increased demand for security-enhancing solutions, which pushes the private sector to come up with such products at an ever-increasing pace. Blockchain-based systems’ decentralized nature makes for their formidable resiliency to the outsiders’ attempts to infiltrate or take down such networks.

The latest use case – Israel’s securities regulator introducing a blockchain-powered messaging system in order to ensure the authenticity of its communications – is an instance of a prevalent, yet not exclusive, area of the technology’s security application: data protection.

Cybersecurity

Ensuring data security and integrity is blockchain’s natural and widely recognized forte. The need to keep critical data safe and provably unaltered is even more pronounced in areas such as law enforcement and defense, where the consequences of failing to protect data might be especially dreadful.

Transaction tracking

Another common and well-documented application of blockchain technology for security and law enforcement purposes manifests in a wide range of tools that permit tracking suspicious or illegal financial activity, with the ultimate goal of matching pseudonymous crypto addresses with perpetrators of real crime. In this domain, police and intelligence agencies often operate in collaboration with private companies that build and maintain relevant software tools, or even completely outsource investigative work to them.
