Blockchain Technology: Emerging Applications and Use Cases

Speaker:  Danda B Rawat – Washington, DC, United States
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


Blockchain technology stores different transactions/operations in a chain of blocks in a distributed manner without needing a trusted third-party. Furthermore, blockchain is proven to be immutable which helps for integrity and accountability, and, to some extent, confidentiality through a pair of public and private keys. Blockchain has been in the spotlight after the successful boom of Bitcoin. There have been efforts to leverage salient features of blockchain technology for different applications and use cases for smart digital systems. This talk will present an overview of blockchain technology with its salient features and typical blockchain protocols, how it can help stop corruption and help increase transparency, security, and trust in different applications.  This talk will also present research challenges and directions for blockchain and its applications.
