美国国土安全部再补助近80万美元用于开发区块链密钥管理解决方案

区块链技术创业公司Evernym已经获得了来自美国国土安全部(DHS)小型企业创新项目(SBIR)的79.4万美元补助,用于开发基于区块链的密钥管理解决方案。该项目由DHS网络安全部门负责监督创建。

根据DHS科技部代理副部长William Bryan表示Evernym将设计和开发一种基于区块链技术的去中心化密钥管理解决方案。

“我们需要一种更好的,更安全的方法来保护网络用户的身份和隐私。对区块链的研究具有提供解决方案的巨大潜力,这将使破解在线用户身份变得相当困难。”

吸引中小企业参与政府研发

DHS的SBIR项目打算吸引小型企业来参与联邦政府的研发任务。

这个合同奖励计划在过去已经为多家区块链创业公司的各种研发项目提供了资金支持。

除了Evernym,其他同样从这个项目获得资金的区块链创业公司还包括Digital Bazaar和BlockCypher。

联邦机构涉足区块链技术

多个美国联邦政府机构都已经开始推动区块链项目。其中包括美国国家科学基金会(NSF)。在2017年初的补助提案征求书中,NSF表示他们正在寻求资助7到9个项目,每个项目补助100万美元。

NSF写道:

“随着远程设备数量增加以及多种(远程)无线和移动传感器搜集的数据越来越多,科学正在变得越来越分散并且虚拟。我们需要像区块链技术这样的解决方案来确保数据完整性和机密性,而这些数据需要跨越多种环境,如手机,云端,校园网和因特网等。”

州级区块链项目

当不忙于监管加密货币行业时,美国政府就讨论和资助区块链相关的项目,从而优化现有流程。

这些项目包括来自蒙大纳州和伊利诺斯州的项目。事实上,美国国务院已经组织了一个Blockchain@State工作组,旨在对区块链在政府工作流程中的可能性进行更多的研究。

Blockchain technology startup Evernym has secured a grant worth $794,000 from the US Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Small Business Innovation Program (SBIR) for the development of Blockchain key management solutions. The project is supervised by the DHS’ Cyber Security Division.

According to acting DHS Undersecretary for Science and Technology, William Bryan, Evernym will design and develop a decentralized key management solution for Blockchain technologies.

"A better, more secure method is needed to safeguard the identity and privacy of web-users. Research in Blockchain holds significant potential to provide a solution that will make it considerably more difficult to hack an online user's identity."

Attracting SMBs to participate in government R&D

The DHS’ SBIR program intends to attract small businesses to participate in the federal government’s research and development (R&D) undertakings.

The contract awards program has already provided funds to several Blockchain startup companies in the past for various R&D projects.

Aside from Evernym, the other startups that have obtained funding from the program include Digital Bazaar and BlockCypher.

Federal agencies involved in Blockchain tech

Several US federal government agencies have also advanced programs in the field of Blockchain technology. One of the agencies is the National Science Foundation (NSF). In its grant proposal solicitation in early 2017, the NSF said that it is looking to fund between seven and nine projects of as much as $1 mln per project.

Part of the solicitation reads:

“With the growing amount of remote instruments and the increasing amount of data being collected from multiple, often remote, wireless and mobile sensors, science is increasingly distributed and virtual. Solutions such as the introduction of Blockchain technology are needed to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of data as it traverses multiple environments such as mobile, cloud, campus and Internet networks.”

States Blockchain-related projects

When not busy trying to regulate the cryptocurrency industry, the US government is known to discuss and fund Blockchain-related projects that aim to optimize existing processes.

These programs include projects in states of Montana and Illinois. In fact, the State Department has also organized the Blockchain@State working group to research more on the possibilities of Blockchain in the government workflow.
