报告摘要: Blockchain, the technology behind Bitcoin, has drawn widespread attention in recent years. As a popular “secure by design” technology, Blockchain has great potential to enable a wide range of distributed applications across a broad spectrum of industries. While blockchain promises decentralization, irreversible record keeping, public verifiability, transparency, and user anonymity, etc., some of these properties are not guaranteed and they come at a very high price. At the same time, excessive overhead and performance deficits may place a fundamental limit on the use of blockchain in many applications. In this talk, we will first examine some fundamental properties of blockchain. We will then introduce “PrivacyGuard”, a blockchain-based private data usage control system that enforces data usage control and thus prevents second-hand data misuse, like the case happened in the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal. PrivacyGuard seamlessly integrates two technologies, smart contract and trusted execution environment (TEE), to overcome the contract execution efficiency problem with a novel trustworthy off-chain contract execution engine.
