Re: ID
@kq4ym: Indeed, I think blockchain is going to be vital to saving enterprise cloud security -- if we let it get that far.

One of the problems with cloud CIA (confidentiality, integrity, and availability) is that it's centralized.  Blockchain, on the other hand, relies on decentralization.  It has the power to re-reinvent the way enterprise networking works.

Blockchain FTW
Blockchain is an ideal means for keeping networks secure, particularly when IoT comes into play. It means peer-to-peer communication, the ability to authenticate, applying cryptographic standards and maintaining transparency across supply chains - just a few of the benefits.

Re: ID
It does sound perfect on a smaller scale like that. Many blockchain doubters dismiss it as a security measure as they don't see it as feasible on a large scale, least of all because they don't see the majority of companies being willing to adopt the technology. But the fact that IBM has firmly taken up the blockchain mantle might change that!

Re: ID
It does sound like a better way to slice bread, and considering all the new security measures being placed at goverment offices and in banking I'd like to see it happen sooner than later. Our Florida driver's license offices, for example now require so many forms of ID to renew it's a real challenge for lots of folks to get through it easily. This would be perfect and save countless hours of customer and office personnel time to speed up the process.

Re: Personal privacy and security in a cloud
@JohnMason true, though blockchain also offers a thorough record of data transfer. Though nothing is completely foolproof (or hackproof) that digital trail is a strong disincentive to hacking.

Personal privacy and security in a cloud
This is effectively keeping one's most personal and private data in a cloud. It reinforces the idea that such data may be securely kept online, which allows tremendous convenience in accessing that information to facilitate transactions.

This is a great way to tie in all data points to one reference. And the blockchain enables that data to be transparent, requiring changes on other data levels to create a gold record of sorts for things like identification.
