After several years of quiet incubation of the Bitcoin project, Blockchain is now a word known to the general public and pervasive in the industry.
More recently, researchers and industry are exploring the space of application of distributed ledgers beyond financial and monetary solutions, looking for alternatives to overcome the limitations of these technologies such as scalability and power consumptions, thus multiplying the number of projects and initiatives.
It remains unclear at this point what is and what should be the role of regulators and standardization bodies but in order to enable application of distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) in critical ICT services, ETSI is calling for a public discussion on the value of DLTs for the security and trust in the world wide ICT ecosystems.
The objective of this event is to:
- Understand Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) technical principles
- Understand how the Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) address cybersecurity threats and in which cases they are effective
- Investigate use cases and applications of DLT
- Investigate how ETSI can use such technologies within services and technologies it standardizes
- Discuss security features and security/privacy weaknesses of DLT
- Investigate what ETSI can do in the standardization of DLT in complement to other standardization initiatives
- Investigate to what extent ETSI standardization is impacted by these technologies
This event is of interest to any organisation having a stake in distributed ledgers developments and standardisation.
