A new farming proposal to reduce carbon emissions involves a lot of trust – and a lot of uncertainty
Lockheed Martin to use SpiderOak blockchain in securing satellite communications
SpiderOak is working with Lockheed Martin on a blockchain solution to secure communications for the latter's satellites, including military Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR).
The plan is to integrate OrbitSecure, which uses a permissioned blockchain to share access and control of surveillance and assets using end-to-end encryption, into Lockheed’s satellite management systems.
OrbitSecure provides proof of identity, authority, and integrity that every agent within the network verifies.
The platform's open-source software development kit for blockchain and encryption allows zero trust security to be embedded within the application layer. Together
SpiderOak received a US Airforce small business grant to develop its OrbitSecure platform last year.
Joe Epstein, SBIR portfolio manager for Lockheed Martin Space, noted that Relentless cyber security is critical for our customers and ensures that their national security and intelligence missions are robust and resilient
Other Lockheed Martin blockchain projects have included using blockchain for the supply chain and developing identity standards for internet of things devices.
