We propose a system called Secure Messaging Platform as a Service (SMPaaS).It provides a distributed network capability for secure real-time communication and collaboration of documents. SMPaaS will track meta-data of message communication operations, showing who modified what in an unmodifiable blockchain ledger. Traditional methods are centralized, unencrypted, expensive, inefficient, brittle and subject to cyber-attack.This platform securely transfers messages through a distributed network, allowing for real-time collaboration improving inefficiencies in legacy and current back office infrastructures. All messages will be encrypted using a number of protocols. SMPaaS will create a common, cryptographically sound ledger that can be used alongside applications with virtually any type of messages, and support the business logic of the DOD ecosystem.
