IDSA aims at open, fede­r­a­ted data eco­sys­tems and mar­ket­pla­ces ensu­ring data sover­eig­n­ty for the crea­tor of the data. Today, the­re is a com­mon under­stan­ding that data is of high value and the­re is a need for ven­dor-inde­pen­dent data eco­sys­tems and mar­ket­pla­ces, open to all, at low cost, with low ent­ry bar­ri­ers.

IDSA addres­ses the need for Data Sover­eig­n­ty as a pri­ma­ry goal. But data-dri­ven busi­ness-eco­sys­tems requi­re a fun­da­men­tal level of cyber­se­cu­ri­ty and com­pre­hen­si­ve log­ging of tran­sac­tions for several pur­po­ses.

Block­chain tech­no­lo­gy is a matu­re tech­no­lo­gy that can ful­fill this need. This Posi­ti­on Paper dis­cus­ses the pos­si­ble usa­ge sce­n­a­ri­os for Block­chain tech­no­lo­gy in the IDS con­cepts for the Data Eco­no­my. This is illus­tra­ted by several use cases in the IDS eco­sys­tem that com­bi­nes the power of IDS and Block­chain Tech­no­lo­gy.
