The United States faces an escalating cybersecurity challenge, with national assets increasingly vulnerable to sophisticated attacks. The ever-reducing barriers to entry in the cyber realm, coupled with advanced persistent threats, underscore the critical imperative to fortify the defense of U.S. assets. Blockchain technology, pioneered by Satoshi Nakamoto over a decade ago, emerges as a resilient cryptographic solution capable of safeguarding data and assets from threats both within and outside a network. This paper delves into the potential of the Chia blockchain as a strategic ally for the Department of Defense (DoD) in bolstering its cybersecurity measures. Beyond a theoretical exploration, the paper provides tangible use cases that illustrate the practical application of Chia within the DoD framework. Notably, the examination extends to crucial areas such as financial auditing, identification management, and supply chain oversight, showcasing the versatility and efficacy of Chia in addressing multifaceted challenges faced by the DoD.
