We propose an innovative system to create an open method of tracking the “chain of custody” of technical artifacts in a distributed ledger called CustodyChain. Blockchains are a form of distributed ledger. CustodyChain facilitates Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC)’s goals of preserving knowledge, connecting people, and inspiring innovation. CustodyChain is designed for use beyond DTIC, where it could track documents DLA-wide or DoD-wide. CustodyChain will underpin a new generation approach to create an authoritative and immutable distributed ledger to catalog creation, modification, and distribution of technical data, promulgated to defense and research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) community by DTIC, to support our Warfighters and help assure national security.
