DISA Considering Blockchain Tech for DoD’s Digital Infrastructure

1 min read

The Defense Information Systems Agency plans to deploy blockchain technologies being developed by IBM, Microsoft and Amazon Web Services into the Department of Defense’s systems, GCN reported Tuesday.

The agency’s emerging technologies directorate is studying recent developments in other blockchain programs including the Department of Health and Human Services’ HHS Accelerate program and the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s research into blockchain applications. DISA is also looking into the implementation of blockchain confidentiality aspects, which is being undertaken by the Department of Homeland Security’s science and technology directorate.

Sherri Sokol, innovation leader at DISA, said the agency wants to establish a secure, scalable and agile way of handling operations within accredited DoD infrastructure.

“It would really just be the platform, infrastructure resource management and monitoring, which are services that DISA already offers,” she added.
