Tamper-proof Signalling System UPSC NOTE


Tamper-proof Signalling System

  • The Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, is developing a tamper-proof signalling system based on blockchain technology for the Indian Railways.

  • Embedded with enhanced safety measures.

  • The new system would complement the existing Data Logger, which is considered the ‘Black Box’ of rolling stock.

  • Blockchain is a system of recording information which cannot be tampered, hacked or manipulated.

  • The Blockchain  technology was being widely used in cryptocurrency and banking transactions.

  • The focus was to make the live movement of trains available for Station Masters, Section Controllers, Signal Engineers and others with all logs. 

  • The new system would provide enhanced data integrity, transparency and security. 

  • It would enable secure data sharing among stakeholders, automate processes with smart contracts and create tamper-evident audit trails.

  • The system would complement the Data Logger which was limited by its centralised storage facility, lack of tamper-evident data, and limited access control.

  • The new blockchain system would address these limitations by storing data in a distributed ledger, using cryptography.
