Blockchain and Safeguards: The Potential for Distributed Ledger Technology
This workshop will assess the potential utilization of blockchain technology to provide greater efficiency, data reconciliation, accuracy, and trust in the management of international nuclear safeguards information. Originally devised for the digital exchange of cryptocurrency, blockchain is a distributed ledger technology (DLT) that offers a way for parties in a network to maintain a shared, consistent, and immutable history of transactions. Such technology could have the potential to improve trust, transparency, and efficiency in the management of safeguards information. The workshop will also touch upon the potential for DLT to be applied to export controls and supply chain auditing. Discussion and feedback from the workshop will be incorporated into a future Stanley Center publication.
