WILMINGTON, Mass., April 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Security Innovation, an authority in software security assessment and training, today announced Mick Ayzenberg, the company’s Blockchain Center of Excellence lead, will teach a 2-day course on August 3rd and 4th at BlackHat USA 2019 in Las Vegas.
As Blockchain platforms become more developed, companies are beginning to investigate how this emerging technology might improve their business. However, every new technology comes with risks to consider with respect to construction and integration. The course, titled Intro to Hacking Blockchain Applications and Smart Contracts, focuses on the methodologies used when developing smart contracts for Blockchain enabled DApps (Decentralized Applications), with specific attention to Ethereum and Solidity. Leveraging a Smart Contract CTF (capture the flag) product built by Mr. Ayzenberg, attendees will learn and apply techniques to exploit vulnerabilities in these technologies.
“A lot of projects are experimenting with Blockchain and smart contracts,” said Mr. Ayzenberg. “There is very interesting research happening right now that could solve a lot of existing problems in terms of scalability, such as layer two solutions and zero knowledge proofs. Training those who design and implement these systems is paramount to ensuring our Blockchain future remains secure and protects privacy.”
