Blockchain technology has evolved from being an immutable ledger of
transactions for cryptocurrencies to a programmable interactive environment
for building distributed reliable applications. Although the blockchain
technology has been used to address various challenges, to our knowledge
none of the previous work focused on using Blockchain to develop a secure
and immutable scientific data provenance management framework that
automatically verifies the provenance records using off-chain techniques.
In this talk, we discuss how we leverage Blockchain as a platform to
facilitate trustworthy data provenance collection, verification, and
management. The developed system utilizes smart contracts and open
provenance model (OPM) to record immutable data trails. We show that our
proposed framework can securely capture and validate provenance data that
prevents any malicious modification to the captured data as long as the
majority of the participants are honest.

Dr. Kantarcioglu is a Professor in the Computer Science Department and
Director of the Data Security and Privacy Lab at The University of Texas at
Dallas (UTD). Dr. Kantarcioglu’s research focuses on the integration of
cyber security and data science.Presentations are recorded and include time
for questions with the audience.
