The block chain technology focuses on the integrity of digital assets, including the network, as well as data points, switches, routers, event records, binary configuration, real-time independent verification of network conditions to ensure information security. (As shown below)n

nAnd IBM has been trying to speed up the realization of this technology, it developed a new framework to secure the operation of the chain chain network, IBM cloud platform launched a new service to meet the existing regulatory and security needs. Security is an important reason for blockline application barriers, and IBM has embarked on a solution to security requirements. They support block technology in terms of federal information processing standards (FIPS 140-2) and industry assessment assurance levels (EAL) Financial services and health care applications. The company has been a member of the Linux Foundation Hyperledger project, has released 44,000 codes to deal with the various environments, and has begun to provide services on its cloud platform Bluemix to help developers quickly build block applications using block technology.n
nBlock chain technology is a new thing for the market, IBM has begun to study the release of new products, such as Linux can only run on the security server to launch cloud services and BaaS, to develop their own niche market. In addition, IBM is also trying to expand its global audience, they opened an innovation center in Singapore, to speed up the block chain technology in the Asia-Pacific region’s financial and trade industry. The company has partnered with the Singapore Economic Development Agency (EDB) and the Singapore Monetary Authority (MAS) to help IBM improve its customer base in the chain chain market. In order to rank among the block chain markets, IBM opened IBM Bluemix Garage in New York in 2016 to allow developers to join the development of block chain technology.n

n5. Supply chain: traceabilityn
nBlock-chain technology has the potential to subvert supply chain management and can be used for supply chain data validation, managed chains, and ensuring regulatory compliance controls on food products and other items. Block chains can record and ensure information security, including the number of items, quality and other traceable information. In 2016, IBM released a platform to test online book technology to track high-value goods that were transferred in the supply chain.n
nThe world-renowned wine expert Maureen Downey, along with Everledger, used block-chain technology to create a wine security and anti-counterfeiting system called Chai Wine Vault to improve the origin of the wine industry. This bottle of Margaux in 2001 was certified to be protected in the Chai Wine Vault system. The system uses a Maureen Downey method (TCM) to certify a bottle of wine and needs to collect more than 90 data points, high resolution photos, owner or owner status and storage records. Everledger collects all of this information and uses block-chain technology to create a permanent digital file. Every time a wine is circulated in the supply chain, the owner’s identity and storage records are updated. Licensed retailers, wholesalers, auction houses and warehouses can find digital records of wine and view source sources.n
nThe value of the wine verified by this system may increase over the next few years. The Chai Wine Vault system, based on the Linux Foundation Hyperledger fabric, is authenticated and protected by IBM block chain technology to help increase transparency, security, and efficiency in an authorized environment.n

nAs a leader in the diamond security verification industry, Everledger’s focus in the past year has been to ensure that every diamond source in the chain chain has been encrypted with 1,000,000 stone data. Diamond certificates are often threatened by tampering, the reliability of their sources is also affected, the wine industry has the same problem, the urgent need for a more secure and transparent way to protect their identity and source information reliability. In the premium wine industry, it is estimated that 20% of international sales from fake wine, information tampering and fraud problems affect the wine supply chain in all aspects.n
nIn addition, Wal-Mart is also working with IBM to use block-chain technology to track food sources. Pork and American supermarket goods in the Chinese market are two large quantities of commodities in the large market and the core of the Wal-Mart block chain pilot project, from which the principles and application methods of the block chain can be understood. The project will use the block-chain system based on the Hyperadeger of IBM’s open source platform to record the identity and transaction data of each agency involved in pork processing.n
nLike other retailers, Wal-Mart has been trying to improve the transparency and traceability of the food supply chain for many years, but growers, packaging workers, suppliers, etc. do not always mention the data they need. Part of the reason is that technology is too complex, such as computers and RFID chips. Yiannas, who has been working on food safety technology for decades, says it is unrealistic to equip each packaging shop with a computer.n
nSet up the supply chain in the block chain book, you can track all the data, a few minutes you can get the relevant data, rather than a few days. Such a system can improve Wal-Mart’s supply chain efficiency by reducing packaging waste by identifying packaging information and reducing food storage time.n
