Swiss CyberSecurity meeting: Blockchain Security – 11.05.2017

Dear Guests and Swiss CyberSecurity community members,

We are inviting you to discover a new technology, Blockchain, but this time more from the security point of view.

The introduction will be given by our community member, computer science researcher at University of Geneva, Mohammad Oday Darwich, about Blockchain and Ethereum. The goal is to understand how blockchain works, how such decentralized application could be built on top of that. He will give us an overview about what does it mean to hard-fork and how can we use the smart contracts.

We will dive deeper in the Blockchain Security with Prof. Bryan Ford, who leads the Decentralized/Distributed Systems (DEDIS) research group at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). He will focus on building secure decentralized systems, touching on topics including private and anonymous communication, scalable decentralized systems, Internet architecture for blockchain and security perspectives.

After the presentation we will have a round-table discussion having the chance to ask about more specific aspects, contributing with our knowledge and feedback’s.
