Using the TFA Labs Signed at Source™ solution we can implement secure device access and ensure data integrity is maintained from the source of each device and at any point in transit. This opportunity gives us the authority to investigate the benefits blockchain can bring to securing the US energy grid as part of phase one of this government-funded project.”
