Innovative Approach for the Implementation of Blockchain in Command and Control Systems of Critical Infrastructure Networks
Keywords:Blockchain technology, Decision optimization, Critical infrastructures, Digitization, Cyber security
Blockchain technology is becoming increasingly attractive for a series of decision-making processes based on the facilities of the digitized environment for any field of human society. The foundation of blockchain technology is data and information structured in a distributed and immutable ledger through cryptographic mechanisms and consensus protocols. In this paper, we present a critical analysis of the possibilities of implementing this technology at the level of critical infrastructure networks that are priority targets to hit in the event of a conflict situation. Using the SWOT method, we highlight the advantages of blockchain implementation and propose some directions for transforming vulnerabilities and weak points into opportunities for the development of decision support methods at the level of distributed critical infrastructures networks.
