Project title: Development of an innovative data security system in biotechnology and diagnostic laboratories based on blockchain technology
Co-financing agreement number:
In 2008 Satoshi Nakamoto has published the article „Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”, which describes cryptographic mechanisms on which the currently used cryptocurrency Bitcoin is based. The article also describes the blockchain technology, which is a distributed system for the transaction record of the new currency. The blockchain mechanism is an alternative for the traditional banks – in blockchain users decide which transactions should be accepted and the anonymity of parts is ensured. The data is stored in the list of records, called blocks, which have chronological order and are impossible to be changed.
As a part of the project, we will conduct research and development in order to acquire new knowledge of applying the blockchain mechanism for providing security of laboratory and medical data.
Project co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund.
