Special Session on Advancing Security in Distributed Ledger Technologies

Special Session 3: Beyond the Blocks: Advancing Security in Distributed Ledger Technologies

Session Chair Name

Dr. Velliangiri Sarveshwaran

Aim & Scope

This session title highlights the evolving landscape of security challenges and solutions beyond traditional blockchain frameworks. While blockchain technology has laid the foundation for decentralized systems, emerging distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) present new opportunities and risks. This session aims to explore innovative security approaches tailored to various DLT architectures, including directed acyclic graphs (DAGs), hashgraphs, and tangles. By going "beyond the blocks," attendees will gain insights into cutting-edge security strategies essential for safeguarding the next generation of distributed systems, fostering collaboration, and shaping future research directions in the field.
