Blockchains use in InfoSec


Recommended Posts

Perhaps there could be some sort of system where file integrity is verified through a blockchain sort of decentralized ledger. However, blockchain has largely fallen victim to "cool new buzzword technology must be applied to everything" syndrome. Just because something new is potentially game-changing doesn't mean it will change every other game as well. Really, the best application of blockchain is as a digital currency or token. Almost all blockchain-based technology that has been introduced is either an actual currency or simply takes an existing process and incorporates some token-based algorithm, as if this will magically make the process better. And in some respects, it may be better. But in my opinion, blockchain is a "just because you can doesn't mean you should" technology. Blockchain has its place, but information security is probably not it.
