Research Institution

The Department of Defense (DOD) currently exposes research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E) outputs to the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC), which is estimated to serve about 4-5 million documents to 4000 users.  DTIC’s goal is to consolidate, unify, manage, control, search, analyze, and disseminate scientific and technical data using a single tool. Currently, the system lacks certain auditing capabilities surrounding the integrity, authenticity, authoritative source, and access auditing and control capabilities for the data.  Consequently, what is required moving forward is a system that can integrate data from DTIC and other repositories in a way that can apply such measures in a flexible and extensible way, so that new users and new uses of the data can be managed and scaled effectively. The Authenticity Ledger for Auditable Military Enclaved Data Access (ALAMEDA) proposal aims to design such a system. By leveraging our previous experience in designing and implementing our SIMBA Chain platform in collaboration with the University of Notre Dame, we will architect, design and prototype a demonstration system that can interact with existing repositories to ingest data, store data in a non repudiable way using a private Blockchain network and associated off-chain data store. The proposed system makes it possible to efficiently share documents and scientific data sets that will retain their integrity and authenticity and which can be accessed through an extensible access control layer providing flexible APIs for adding groups, users and permissions to the documents they share.  Users or any authoritative source will be able to decide whom they share the data with, and how.
