it-sa insights: TeleTrusT-Auditorium IT Security - Blockchain - With standardization against adoption barriers?
From a technical point of view, the blockchain is a decentralized database that is stored on all computers in the trustless network and is constantly synchronized. The public ledger of the block chain creates a continuous, irreversible and indisputable chain of transactions in a global, decentralized network. This makes it possible to cover the information security protection goals: Availability, Confidentiality and Integrity. The redundant distribution of the network nodes ensures fail-safe operation (availability). Public key cryptography provides secure access to the data (Confidentiality). The chained data structure ensures protection against "unnoticed" changes (integrity).
The technical advantages are evident and can be beneficially applied in a wide variety of applications, such as crypto currencies, supply chain management, tracking, certificates of competence or digital identities. The fundamental technical developments have been completed and the actual implementation can be based on solid and robust implementation variants. In fact, productive applications have so far been virtually impossible to find in private and public sector organizations. Dr. Kudra's presentation is devoted to a controversial discussion of how international standardization efforts (e.g. the ISO - International Organization for Standardization or W3C - World Wide Web Consortium) can promote the creation of a robust legal framework and promote market acceptance and penetration.
