Security expert Kevin L.Jackson has lent his expertise to the launch of a new service based on innovative blockchain technology. In partnership with Total Network Services Inc., this innovation can help secure supply chains and ensure individual users can identify and remediate compromised devices in their network.

The Universal Communication Identifier (UCID™) is the world’s first blockchain-enabled service for supply chain security, device management, software licensing, and equipment tracking.

One of UCID™’s key features is the tokenization of all connected devices onto a blockchain, which will improve visibility on when and where a hack has occurred, across all connected devices. Users will also have a record of information transactions associated with that device.

This is crucial in an age where our devices are increasingly interconnected - especially through the Internet of Things (IoT) - and are susceptible to hacking.

‘Increasingly, the rise of connected devices, and IoT devices, means that we will be providing cyberwar hackers with more opportunities for to steal data and compromise the global information and telecommunications infrastructure ,’ says Jackson.

On an individual level, this could mean hacking into baby monitors, CCTV, or smart cars for ransom money.

Meanwhile, corporations are increasingly susceptible to software supply chain attacks on key aspects of their businesses. From compromising payment platforms to attacking devices further down in the chain by third-party devices, in today’s internet age, The SolarWinds hack in 2020, which disrupted more than 30,000 public and private organizations, is just an example of how vulnerable corporate supply chains are today.

UCID™ helps address these issues. Service capabilities include automated hardware and software bill-of-material documentation, counterfeit device detection, and software remediation monitoring give users more insight into when, where and how hardware and software in the supply chain might be compromised.

Jackson explains:

‘When a device is registered on the UCID™ blockchain, digital signatures of all installed software are also recorded on the blockchain. This data is used to check the NIST National Vulnerabilities Database for open vulnerabilities or required cybersecurity remediation.’

It’s clear why this is necessary. Russia’s invasion against Ukraine and the West’s unprecedented response makes it clear why enhanced cybersecurity protection is necessary. Crippling sanctions and exodus of the private sector suggest Russia may have already started an all-out cyber warfare on a scale never before seen. The crisis acts as a wake-up call for the West to finally get its act together on cybersecurity.

Jackson, a former executive for IBM and JP Morgan Chase, has been an expert on advanced technology and cyber security since the late 1990s and has published several books on the subject. The combination of his Navy Space Technology and US Intelligence Community hybrid cloud computer engineering background has made Jackson an expert in spotting and responding to cyber threats. He is a USA Today and WSJ-bestselling author whose books include “Click to Transform” (2020) and “Architecting Cloud Computing Solutions” (2018). both of which have become well respected guides cloud computing and digital transformations. Kevin is also the host of “Digital Transformers”, a video blog that highlights the companies and executives leading global industries into the digital future.

With over 300,000 followers on social media, Kevin L. Jackson is the host of the “Digital Transformers” video podcast and has been recognized as a “Top 5G Influencer” (Onalytica 2019, Radar 2020) and a “Top 50 Global Digital Transformation Thought Leader” (Thinkers 360 2019) .
