DLS in Cybersecurity with Ari Juels: Beyond Smarts: Toward Correct, Private, Data-Rich Smart Contracts

Prof. Ari Juels, Cornell Tech, New York, USA

June, 21, 2018, 16:15 – 17:15

TU Darmstadt | Piloty-Gebäude S2|02 | Raum C 110 | Hochschulstraße 10 | Darmstadt

Abstract:
Smart contracts are applications that run on and inherit the special properties of blockchains. These properties alone, though, do not make smart contracts broadly useful. Persistence prevents tampering, but makes errors irreversible. Transparency supports behavioral assurances, but at the cost of confidentiality.
