US Department of Homeland Security provides Digital Bazaar with $200,000 to build a certificate management solution

The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced that it has provided nearly $200,000 to blockchain startup Digital Bazaar to build a certificate management solution. In announcing the news, DHS said that the process of issuing and verifying a large number of licenses and certificates is usually based on paper documents, which is not conducive to data exchange, and is prone to problems such as loss, tampering and forgery. The use of blockchain technology can digitize these processes, helping to enhance security, ensure interoperability, and prevent counterfeiting and counterfeiting. As a result, Digital Bazaar is working on a project called “Interoperable Enterprise Identity and Credential Lifecycle Management” to help DHS improve its processes.
