Abstract: Security in online transactions is a critical component that cannot be overlooked in designing an accounting system for network-based trade. Previously, the challenge of double spending and the possibility for an external attack that could temper with records hampered the adoption of online transactions, additionally, the need for a trusted third party to validate transactions made over the networks made it too expensive to adopt such ideas. Thus, online transactions remained a dream for many. However, the introduction of blockchain and innovative contract technology has boosted their adoption. This document presents a case study report to develop a safe and secure system for government transactions using the mentioned technologies.

Keywords: blockchain; smart contract; Hyperledger; security; NIST.
