Blockchain is a new application of computer technology generated from Bitcoin, which is in nature a decentralized database. As the fundamental technology of Bitcoin, blockchain is a series of data blocks associated using cryptographic methods, which are used to verify the validity of the information (anti-counterfeiting) and generate the next block. Public, consortium and private blockchains are widely used in finance, IoT, logistics, insurance and other sectors. After the release of the first China standard on blockchain: Blockchain—Reference Architecture, the stakeholders involved became more and more aware of the significance of blockchain standardization. As a result, SESEC IV will hold Webinar 08 to briefly introduce the development of China standardization in the area of blockchain.
On September 10, 2019 (Tuesday), SESEC IV will hold its Webinar 08 on “Current Status of China Blockchain Standardization” between 9:30 – 10:30am, Brussels time. SESEC will invite Ms. Jianong LI and Ms. Lin SUN, experts from CESI (China Electronics Standardization Institute), to give a one-hour introduction in English.
Ms. Jianong LI, an engineer in the Software Engineering and Evaluation Center in CESI, is the lead author of China blockchain technology and application development white paper (2016) and Research report on China blockchain technology and application development (2018). With experience in the development of blockchain standards, she engaged in the planning and editing of China’s national standard Blockchain and Distributed Ledger-Reference Architecture, which serves as the basis for ISO/CD 23257.
Ms. Lin SUN, also an engineer in the Blockchain Research Department at the Software Engineering and Evaluation Center in CESI, is one of the experts of ISO/TC 307 WG6 Use Cases. She is an expert of the IEEE Data Format for Blockchain Systems (C/SAB/DBC) working group and the co-author of Research report on China blockchain technology and application development (2018).
