Ensuring Data Provenance in Trustworthy Systems with K of N Multiparty Access and Hardware Roots of Trust
The efficiency and process streamlining that blockchain offers to business and investment has been established in recent years. The potential for providing rapid transit for funds, goods and services and a host of digital assets packaged as tokens appears to be unlimited. Technology embodied in smart contracts and decentralized applications (DApps) have extended far past the initial financial services applications to defense, critical infrastructure, manufacturing, marketing, distribution and supply chain management. The recent explosion in IoT technology and its obvious synergy with blockchain promises untapped power and reach of blockchain-enabled technology. Achieving its potential will require early addressing of vulnerabilities and ensuring security in the design and implementations of both.

SPYRUS FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified Hardware Security Modules draw on over two decades of proven performance to provide the strongest possible security for such critical applications such as PKI- based identity management, data security, data integrity, and non-repudiation.

The security solutions outlined in this paper have been proven in military and commercial IT use cases. Certified high-assurance hardware repositories based on secure authentication and encrypted storage ensure data provenance and ensure trustworthy computing environments.
