The Trusted Supply Chain assures users that a platform (a PC, server, controller, etc.) was made by the expected manufacturer and its firmware was unaltered. This session will describe a blockchain implementation of the Trusted Supply Chain. We replaced a centralized trust model, with a fully distributed model using Ethereum contracts, allowing participants to obtain direct evidence of their claims.
Learning Objectives: 1: See how to use blockchain to close the supply chain gap between manufacturers and consumers. 2: Understand benefits to manufacturers and component suppliers to participate in the blockchain based supply chain. 3: See how to perform device ownership transfer using blockchain.
Pre-Requisites: Participants should have a fundamental knowledge of supply chain.
