Foundation of Proof – Exploring the Cryptography behind Blockchain

Extended Learning
Learning Level: Intermediate

In this 90-minute webinar we will take a closer look at the technology that is used behind blockchain protocols with a focus on the cryptographic measures that provide proof that data has been unchanged. We will also explore the leading ideas around of ‘Zero Knowledge Proofs’ and how they can be used in a regulated environment to support data integrity without sharing any data.

Learning Objectives

  1. A basic understanding of hash algorithms and how they are used within blockchains
  2. Introduction to Zero Knowledge Proofs and how these can create privacy on public networks
  3. The role that ancillary technologies play in supporting blockchain based systems
