Join us Tuesday 27th February at 4:05 PM, at Oracle Code LA to hear Joris Schellekens' talk "Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology for Documents".
What can you expect?
In this talk, Joris will explain Blockchain, which is a type of Distributed Ledger Technology, where records are organized in blocks and appended to a single chain using cryptography and distributed consensus. Each block contains a time stamp and a link to the previous block, ensuring that data in a block can't be altered retroactively. This makes blockchain a good choice for the recording of events, provenance tracking, and document life-cycle management. Signing a PDF in the blockchain instead of storing a signature in a PDF reduces the complexity of the code for a developer who needs digital signing and verification functionality. The same principle can be used in many other use cases to implement a document workflow, to keep track of the location of a document, and much more.
