Immutability, decentralization, consensus and cryptography support blockchain’s claims of security. At the same time, according to a study by MIT, there have been 72 publicly reported security breaches between 2011 and 2018. The very features that make a blockchain secure have been used in new and novel ways to expose its weaknesses. Financial and infrastructure service providers are upbeat about blockchain’s security but the security community continues to stand by its mantra that nothing is secure. How secure is the blockchain solution when compared to traditional systems? This panel will examine the realities of blockchain security and evaluate its potential to replace and enhance existing security mechanisms. It will go beyond the hopes and hypes to uncover the realities, challenges, applications and opportunities for security in a blockchain.
