Hyperledger Fabric (HLF) blockchains architecture was designed from the ground up to be highly extensible with plug & play modules in order to meet most business cases. The many permutations of these modules, also make it hard to decide what to use & how to configure them properly. In most cases this is not well documented, nor are the best practices easy to find, & hence seldom followed. This results in unsafe, buggy, & slow systems not worthy of what one expects of any enterprise application, blockchain none-withstanding!
In this session, we will address the challenges of privacy & security by presenting the best patterns & methodologies, of how to implement enterprise grade HLF blockchain implementations. Further more we will cite real world examples illustrated with diagrams, code-patterns & in some cases short demos or video segments.
If you attend this session, you can expect to:
* Obtain a deep understanding of the privacy mechanisms in the current HLF version 1.4* Learn about the security aspects of HLF & IBM Blockchain platform with respect to choosing the right mix of pluggable modules, configuration as well as cloud topology. Get a good feel of how important it is to consider the impact of hardware choices on security for your particular blockchain use case.* Find out what kind of businesses & verticals that are adopting some or all of these privacy & security mechanisms in the real world today.
