Jakarta Adopts Blockchain For Land and Identity Registries

The Indonesian capital Jakarta plans to adopt Blockchain for land and identity registrations.

Jakarta’s Chief says the tech infrastructure of Jakarta is been attacked millions of times, with the attempt to steal government data on citizens and businesses.  

Setiaji says “Last year, we had more than 22 million attacks coming from outside. They were mostly attacks for data collecting – around 40%”.

He unfolds that Jakarta is “looking at blockchain to improve our services”, particularly to protect permits and registries that the government manages.

Blockchain

The smart city plans to explore three blockchain-based registries which include:

  • Managing the registration of new vehicles, track maintenance and servicing.
  • Using blockchain for land ownership certificates. Hence, reducing disputes and duplicate certificates.
  • Managing digital identities.

Sensors on critical infrastructure

Data is critical to managing the city’s routine. Setiaji says “We need to make sure the hardware, sensors give us the trusted information to us”.

Jakarta relies on data to monitor the quality of services, including city-owned machinery and construction equipment, flood water levels, and public bus timings.

Inhibiting the misuse of APIs

Jakarta’s partnership with tech startups is a key pillar of its smart city vision. It has shared public bus arrival data with transport and delivery app Go-Jek and citizen complaints app Qlue. Another app Qraved is helping the city register street food vendors and check the quality and safety of their food.

Proof of concept

The Jakarta Smart City Unit chooses private sector companies to pitch their ideas and insights on how it can improve its cybersecurity, rather than wait for tender cycles.

It is keen to test ideas before it goes into the procurement process. So they firstly proofread the concept, then after the results are achieved from the POC, they compare the results, and choose the technology.

The city plans to explore new technologies for security and also the forecast for attacks. Even as hackers attempt to gain access to Jakarta’s systems, its leaders remain open to sharing their challenges and testing new ideas from elsewhere.
