Security and Compliance Issues in Blockchain

Speaker:  Ashish Kundu – San Jose, CA, United States
Topic(s):  Computational Theory, Algorithms and Mathematics


Blockchain is a paradigm shift in computing -- it enables computing among distributed untrusted peers without the need for any centralized trusted authority. Transaction management, management of workflow and data  using smart contracts and ledgers are the primary scenarios that are driving the use of blockchain in industry and academia. Healthcare industry and finance industry with privacy-sensitive data and transactions are using blockchain platforms for ensuring provenance and immutability of such data.

However, with the sensitive data and sensitive transactions, such blockchain networks entail enforcement of stringent security, privacy policies. Other than that regulatory compliance requirements are to be assured for the underlying blockchain platforms. What are the security issues, how can we assure HIPAA compliance of a blockchain platform, where are the weakest links and vulnerabilities in a blockchain network? In this talk we shall get into the depth of  the security and compliance issues of blockchain implementations.
