The NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has
published NIST Internal Report (NISTIR) 8419, Blockchain and Related Technologies to Support
Manufacturing Supply Chain Traceability: Needs and Industry Perspectives.
Supply chains are increasingly complex, making the origins of
products difficult to discern. Efforts are emerging to increase traceability of
goods by exchanging traceability data records using blockchain and related
technologies among relevant supply chain participants.
NISTIR 8419 explores the issues that surround traceability,
the role that blockchain and related technologies may be able to play to
improve traceability, and several industry case studies of efforts in use
The publication covers:
- existing factors that inhibit
manufacturing supply chain traceability
- analysis of emerging
blockchain-enabled manufacturing supply chain traceability initiatives in
- recommendations for future
research topics to improve manufacturing supply chain traceability,
enabled by blockchain and related technologies
