In my previous article, we discussed different approaches for solving the data integrity and lineage challenges, and concluded that the “Hashing with DLT“ solution is the direction we will move forward. In this article, we will have deep dive into it. Please not that Veracity’s work on data integrity and data lineage is testing many technologies in parallel. We utilise and test proven centralized technologies as well as new distributed ledger technologies like Tangle and Blockchain. This article series uses the IOTA Tangle as the distributed ledger technology. The use cases described can be solved with other technologies. This article does not necessarily reflect the technologies used in Veracity production environments.
As Veracity is part of an Open Industry Ecosystem we have focused our data integrity and data lineage work using public DLT and open sourced technologies. We believe that to succeed with providing transparency from the user to the origin of data many technology vendors must collaborate around common standards and technologies. The organizational setup and philosophies for some of the public distributed ledgers provides the right environment to learn and develop fast with an adaptive ecosystem.
