4th Blockchain Conference
Blockchain is nowadays considered as a key technology, particularly in Luxembourg.
Many initiatives around this new paradigm are launched. Since the FinTech ecosystem and the Blockchain are based on similar concepts, it is primarily the financial sector that is concerned. However, there exist many more applications in other domains, including the medical sector, e-voting and smart contracts. Security of Blockchain technology is an ambivalent concept: while security constitutes its main strength, it is also the primary source of mistrust that one may have of Blockchain-based applications. The CLUSIL series of conferences on Blockchain security aims at surveying current status of Blockchain security, focusing on sector-specific and national initiatives.
The fourth session provides an insight on two specific aspects of Blockchain. The first part focuses on the security challenges faced especially for smart contract programming and the Ethereum platform, while the second talk provides an analysis of classic cybersecurity issues (confidentiality, integrity and availability) translated to the context of the Blockchain.
