Blockchain technology continues to gain attention and generate excitement throughout industry and Government. This emerging technology has the potential to disrupt current business practices, by streamlining many government business processes and instituting trust within the process itself, but with this change comes risk. Security is a major concern for both Government and Government partners. The goal of this paper is to provide insight and considerations to promote and inspire discussion regarding the process of assessment and authorization of blockchain systems for use in Government, how it aligns with the current FISMA requirements and NIST frameworks and how it can address blockchain systems and applications.
