An Architecture for Sharing Cyber-Intelligence Based on Blockchain Book Chapter Conference Paper uri icon


  • Cyber-intelligence sharing can leverage the development and deployment of security plans and teams within organizations, making infrastructures resilient and resistant to cyberattacks. To be efficient, information sharing should be performed in a trusted environment, ensuring both the integrity, privacy and confidentiality and the truthfulness and usefulness of the information. This paper addresses this issue with the development and deployment of an architecture based on blockchain technology. Each participant is granted a reputation level, that is used to assess and verify the information other actors produce. Each actor, then, is given an amount of credit, corresponding to the number and accuracy of the validation. Information is also organized in topics, instantiated in independent ledgers. The architecture was validated with a three organization scenario, for proof-of-concept.
