OBJECTIVE

- Learn the Blockchain mathematical foundations and issues as well as related techniques specific to trust management in a distributed environment

PUBLICS

Researchers and engineers working in the field of energy, transport, Internet of Things, Finance, etc. 
Attendees are invited to download and fill out the survey from our web site to adapt the programme to their expectations

PRE-REQUIREMENT

Basic knowledge about computer security and notions of cryptography is useful. Although not mandatory. Audience should have basic knowledge in algebra and algorithmic programming 

TRAINING PROGRAMME

The « blockchain» technology appeared with the « Bitcoin » crypto-currency in 2008, whose principles are described in the founding article of Satoshi Nakamoto (Nakamoto). This breakthrough innovation was seen as an opportunity to revisit the relationship of trust in digital services, first in the financial sector and then in different business verticals of the industry. Today, the initial model has generated a diversity of « blockchain » technologies as well as a wide variety of use cases that are no longer confined to cryptocurrencies. This diversity opens up new subjects of investigation at the crossroads of mathematics, computer science and society's digital transformation.

During the 3 days of this session of the Interface program, academics and industry will meet to share a common understanding of these « blockchain » technologies, starting from basic concepts to go to advanced cryptographic primitives that allow one to manage the confidentiality of data in particular in a distributed environment
- Introduction to mathematical principles and techniques of the Blockchain
- Use case 1: Identification, authentication
- Data confidentiality, anonymity
- Use case 2: Data management
- Distributed trust, cryptographic catastrophe
- Consensus protocols

Detailed programme available on CIRM website.

This 3-day training session alternates courses, case studies and computer sessions.

EQUIPMENT

Attendees should bring their own laptops. Computers will be also available onsite for those in need.
