Abstract

To provide deep understanding of blockchains, this talk will anatomize blockchains from three different views. The historical view will start from cryptocurrencies in the last century, proceed to the creations of bit gold, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Hyperledger Fabric, and summarize with how the blockchains differ from each other. The problem view will list the set of problems that blockchains solve, and describe how a component in blockchains solves a specific problem and how the components work together. The constructs view will start with the name of blockchain, explains why block and why chain respectively, and extends to the fundamental computer science problems they solve. Coming out of the talk, you would learn how components of blockchains solve the problems, both individually and together.

Talk 2: Google gVisor: a Container Runtime Sandbox for Security (Zhengyu He)

gVisor is a new sandbox for containers, by leveraging process-level virtualization and a new user-space kernel written in Go. This talk will start from covering the basics of sandboxes, virtualization, and operating systems, then introduce the motivation of gVisor -- why write a new user-space kernel from scratch -- and the security principles used in the design. The talk will also explain some of the technical details and gotchas, and then conclude with a discussion of the potential use cases.
