A Tamper-Proof Digital Archiving Scheme Based on Blockchain
Every society has given a lot of efforts to preserve knowledge for its heritage and the activity is still going on in modern society. The preservation of knowledge in modern society mainly depends on digital technology, unlike previous eras. Digital data is very useful in many respects such as easy transfer or outstanding reusability, but it is not adequate for data preservation because it can be easily modified, vanished, or replaced without notice. In order to resolve this issue, we propose a tamper-proof digital archiving scheme with Blockchain which protects archived data from malicious counterfeiting and guarantees the fidelity of archived data. In the evaluation, the system shows that it is robust to possible forgeries.
