Blockchain Theory and Practice
This training covers all the important notions of modern cryptography, including:
We also present the most relevant and recent applications, including:
The two-day variant of the training features hands-on sessions where participants learn how to put the notions and tools encountered previously into practice by being challenged to find, exploit, and fix vulnerabilities in cryptographic software.
This training was designed for novices to blockchain technologies, and starts with the fundamental technical notions:
We then discuss the practical aspects and their risks:
The two-day variant of this training also includes lectures about legal and regulatory aspects of blockchain technology and is organized jointly with experienced lecturers from a well-known Swiss financial institution.
Jean-Philippe (JP) Aumasson is Principal Research Engineer at Kudelski Security, in Switzerland. He obtained his PhD in cryptography from EPFL in 2010. JP designed the popular cryptographic functions BLAKE2 and SipHash, and the new authenticated cipher NORX. He presented at Black Hat, DEFCON, RSA, and other international conferences. He initiated the Crypto Coding Standard and the Password Hashing Competition projects, wrote the books The Hash Function BLAKE (Springer, 2015) and Serious Cryptography (No Starch Press, 2017).

Philipp Jovanovic is a post-doctoral researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), in Switzerland. He obtained his PhD in cryptography from the University of Passau, Germany, in 2015. Philipp designed several cryptographic algorithms and protocols, such as NORX, OPP/MRO, CoSi, ByzCoin, or RandHound. He is actively involved in the development of open source projects like the kyber crypto library or the cothority framework for scalable, decentralized, cryptographic protocols. Philipp is an IC3 member and works as an adviser to the DFINITY project. His research is published regularly at top crypto/security conferences such as IEEE S&P, USENIX Security, or EUROCRYPT, and he is frequently active at non-academic events like the Chaos Communication Congress, Troopers, or dotSecurity. Philipp tweets as @daeinar.
