Uncle Sam Wants to Snoop on Your Monero Transactions

The United States Department of Homeland Security has announced its intention to develop a monitoring framework to effectively track Zcash and Monero transactions through enhanced forensic analytics capabilities. In a newly released document, the DHS reveals that it aims to achieve this by designing “a product to support the implementation of block chain based forensics, data analysis, and information sharing.”

Released on November 30, the agency’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) FY19 Pre-Solicitation document has been made available to interested parties, giving them an opportunity to comment or request information about selected topic areas, one of which is ‘Blockchain Applications for Homeland Security Forensic Analytics’.
