Organization of European Standards ETSI has set up a group of industry specifications on authorized distribution books (ISG PDL), a central element of blockchain technology.
He said that the move is of relevance to government agencies and industry because the distributed distributed records are better qualified for business use cases than those without a license. There is a wider familiarity with registers without authorization, as these are used for bitcoins.
The group will work on issues related to the operation of PDL, business use cases, functional architecture and solutions for their operation. This will include interfaces, APIs, protocols and data models.
While remaining one of the first options for government agencies, blockchain has aroused some interest in its potential to support legal processes and makes public service processes more transparent.
Last April Matt Hancock, digital secretary of the era, said he could make government services more efficient and the Scottish government has published a report that highlights its potential. HM Land Registry and Food Standards Agency are carrying out projects to test their capabilities.
The founding members of ISG PDL include Ericsson, Huawei, Intel, Telefonica and Vodafone. They will meet for the first time on January 24th.
