  The complete transformation of the supply chain in a truly integrated and fully automated process, presupposes the continuous and endless collection of digital information from every stage of the production scale. The aim is not only to investigate the current situation, but also the history for every stage of the chain. Given the heterogeneity of the systems involved in the supply chain and the non-institutional interoperability in terms of hardware and software, serious ob-jections arise as to how these systems are digitally secured. An important issue is to ensure privacy and business confidentiality. This paper presents a special-ized and technologically up-to-date framework for the protection of digital secu-rity, privacy and industrial-business secrecy. At its core is Federated Learning technology, which operates over Blockchain and applies advanced encryption techniques.
