The blockchain is often considered as the internet 2.0. The blockchain, essentially a database and a giant network, known as a distributed ledger, records ownership and value, and allows anyone with access to view and take part. The blockchain is currently having its biggest impact in financial services, with the largest changes caused by infrastructures using blockchain APIs, which are delivering in the areas of speed in data processing, transparency (amongst the right people) and security. The blockchain offers consumers opportunity to achieve greater control over their information. This will impact on most organisations, as they increasingly rely on the acquisition and application of customer data.
The lab will deliver following applications using blockchain technology
The above-mentioned application areas are symbiotic and complement each other: only trusted entities are allowed to update data stored in blockchains running on hardware that are being protected against data leakage attacks.
Our core members and researchers are academics, developers, administrators and MS/PhD students. Our industrial partners are public and private cyber security organizations that advise us on the design, implementation and commercialization of the R&D work originating from our Lab.
