The first edition of the Swiss Crypto Day takes place on 5 September 2019 and is hosted by the crypto group at the University of Bern. It is an informal event to promote research in cryptology in Switzerland and will take place at irregular intervals.
As the third Ph.D. student in the group Ignacio Amores Sesar joins the team. Originally from Spain, he has a background in mathematics and most recently completed his M.Sc. at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. Welcome!
Our paper Trusted Computing meets Blockchain: Rollback Attacks and a Solution for Hyperledger Fabric describes how to run smart contracts on Hyperledger Fabric within an Intel SGX trusted execution environment. It will appear at IEEE SRDS 2019 in Lyon this October. You’ll find the code on github in a Hyperledger Lab.
