NASA Eyes Blockchain Tech to Secure Aircraft Flight Data

05:45 Friday , January 11th 2019
NASA – the National Aeronautics and Space Administration – is examining blockchain technology as a means to ensure the privacy and security of aircraft flight data. Ronald Reisman, an aero-computer engineer at NASA Ames Research Center, published a paper, suggesting that blockchain networks and smart contracts can help mitigate some security issues. Starting on Jan. 1, 2020, the U.S. has been mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to use a new surveillance system – Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) – which will publicly broadcast aircrafts' identity, position and other information.
