Since 2019 the Blockchain Lab is part of the Institute for Internet Security if(is) headed by Prof. Dr. (TU NN) Norbert Pohlmann. The international and interdisciplinary research team has a diverse skill set to deliver high quality research and enable industry partners to use blockchain in a secure and contemporary manner. Our research is fundamental, aimed for evaluation of blockchain technologies, implementation and uses cases across private, governmental and organizational level. The research includes context analysis for certain scenarios or technologies, empirical research (deploying, testing, evaluation), literature research and analysis. The goal is always to create or validate safe & secure concepts with different blockchain technologies which are in compliance with current data privacy guidelines and the GDPR. We are the competence center for Blockchain and try to establish blockchain technologies as enablers of new business models and efficient business processes. Blockchain technology as a collaboration tool. The blockchain technology generates an encrypted chain of networked data blocks. In these tamper-proof, distributed and redundant data structures, all transactions in the time sequence are logically traceable, immutable and mapped without a central instance.
Security of Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Technology
The eco Blockchain Governance Framework (eBGF) is an initiative to create a framework that will support organisations that have the intention to set up a dedicated public-permissioned, consortial blockchain network.
A transparent documentation of the goals and values as well as the technology of the network will enhance the trust in the consortium and the blockchain. And it will improve the reliability and quality of the network, its services and the community in order to operate a professional, production-grade, public-permissioned blockchain.
The eBGF offers guidelines, recommendations for all relevant topics and links to best practice implementations of consortial blockchain networks. The framework suggests a structure and possible paths for the creation of a specific network governance and possible paths for the actual writing process.
