Blockchain has been hyped as a means to “secure” practically every societal process, including data protection.  Can it and will it? We will explore blockchain technology and opportunities, challenges, and risks in its application for data protection, sharing, and access control. The key promise is to enable accountable sharing and use of data with no single points of failure or compromise: a successful attack against one participant institution should not compromise all institutions' databases. Current blockchains, however, provide decentralized enforcement of only the integrity or immutability, not the privacy or correct management, of data on or off the blockchain. Addressing the full data protection problem requires blockchains to enforce the privacy and accountable use of blockchain-managed information as well. We will introduce a next-generation blockchain architecture designed by the DEDIS lab at EPFL to solve this privacy problem and provide accountable decentralized policy enforcement on sensitive data. We will explore how this data-management architecture is being used by numerous companies and research projects in domains including health informatics, government, and data-driven scientific research.
