In this project, you will study and implement how to scale down the trust required in the financial auditing setting, without compromising a) any of its functionalities and b) the performance significantly.
The applicant will assist in the development of decentralized protocols needed for the automation of various procedures (e.g., the consistency checking amongst cryptographically committed data). They will also assist in the design and implementation of cryptographic components necessary for our developed framework. Last, the applicant will experimentally evaluate said components.
To become familiar with software techniques for deploying cryptographic libraries. To implement cryptographic primitives and integrate them with blockchains systems. Finally, to get introduced into the research challenges of private fintech applications.
