    Session Title: Blockchain DLT Security Model


    Blockchain security is sometimes seen as having addressed confidentiality through encryption, integrity through signing, and availability through distributed processing. Non-repudiation is a typical benefit in the use of cryptography as is done in the blockchain. These factors are by no means the complete security picture for consideration within the blockchain.

    This presentation aims to introduce a model that outlines the major security aspects involved in blockchain technology, to guide security professionals in any organisation wishing to adopt or drive implementation of a blockchain.

    This presentation should leave you with:

    • broadly understanding the relevant blockchain security aspects requiring consideration;
    • being able to order those security aspects in a logical way; and
    • relating the various aspects to each other in a way that makes sense and assists in decision making.
