Blockchain & Digital Integrity : How to generate Trust in the Digital world

Date: Lundi 25 mars 2019 à 17h15

Lieu: CUI / Battelle bât. A, auditoire rez-de-chaussée



How can businesses, people and administrations put their trust in digital-only, dematerialized files and records, such as digital assets, contracts, title deeds or medical records, in the same way as they trust paper-based, printed and signed documents? Starting from the fundamentals of blockchain and cryptography, this conference will focus on practical examples of how to enable Trust in the Digital Era, beyond the Blockchain hype.
Concrete applications will be discussed, using a cutting-edge Blockchain driven digital integrity platform, combining Secure e-Authentication, e-Registries and e-Documents, to guarantee the integrity, security, sovereignty, traceability and auditability of records and documents.
