    In this webinar with guest speaker Thomas Marckx, we will explore the Hyperledger Fabric architecture, security and privacy mechanisms.

    We will see how to get started with blockchain development, and learn the best practices for developing blockchain applications using Fabric.


    • Short recap of distributed ledger technology, compared to centralization and decentralization. Open Public blockchains vs. Permissioned Enterprise blockchains.
    • Where Hyperledger Fabric is among the different blockchain technologies out there.
    • A step-by-step explanation of the concept of membership services and its responsibilities in Fabric.
    • Architecture of Fabric v0.6
    • Security and Privacy in Hyperledger Fabric – how privacy is guaranteed
    • In-depth explanation of how the multi-encryption works.
    • Chaincode of the smart contract and how this can be registered and deployed (CLI, Rest API or SDK) on Fabric v0.6
    • How the consensus mechanisms work (PBFT), and what is planned for Fabric v1.0
    • Blockchain-ops. Run on IBM Bluemix or locally using VM’s or Docker containers.
    • Lessons learned and Q&A.
