IBM and Seagate Launch Blockchain-Based System to Fight Counterfeit Hard Drives

07:13 Thursday , November 08th 2018
IBM and data storage firm Seagate have announced a joint initiative to fight counterfeit hard drives using blockchain technology.

IBM and Seagate's solution will work by updating the IBM Blockchain Platform on the IBM Cloud with product authentication data based on Seagate’s security solution Seagate Secure Electronic ID (eID), the latter of which creates a unique identifier at the point of manufacture that can later be used to verify the identity of a given hard drive at any point during its life cycle.
