2022 Annual Symposium on the Convergence of Trusted Computing and Blockchain Security
On January 12, the "2022 Annual Joint Conference for Converging Trusted Computing and Blockchain Security and Workshop on the Development of Privacy Computing Technology and Application Practice" was successfully held online. The conference was hosted by the Turing Institute of Artificial Intelligence and presented by Safeheron Lab. Participants included Professor Ma Wenping from Xidian University of Electronic Science and Technology, Yuansuan Technology, Fant Technology, including new partners, SlowMist Technology and ConsenLabs. Representatives from various companies gathered virtually to discuss the development and future prospects of the blockchain privacy computing industry. This is the second joint lab conference since the Turing Institute and String Ice Technology formed a partnership in March 2022.
Vice President Gao Yu of the Turing AI Institute delivered a speech that emphasized the growth of the Turing AI Institute's team of ecological partners under the guidance of Professor Andrew Yao, the founder of Secure Multi-Party Computation (MPC) theory. He specifically noted the contributions of joint lab partners like Safeheron Lab in driving the blockchain security industry forward with their skill and expertise, particularly in areas such as ecosystem synergy, industry background, and government relations. Gao also stressed the importance of continuing to work hard in these areas. From a global perspective of integrating trustworthy computing and blockchain, Gao stated that the joint lab is focused on practical outcomes and that there should be increased data circulation and value sharing among the lab's members to empower partners of the ecosystem and better prepare them to face the market and the future together.
During the keynote discussion, members of the joint lab delivered a number of speeches. Professor Ma Wenping from Xidian University of Electronic Science and Technology presented a significant report on "Design and Implementation of HMAC Algorithm Based on MPC Theory" and highlighted the important breakthroughs made through the collaboration between industry, academia, and research, specifically mentioning that Safeheron Lab and Xidian University of Electronic Science and Technology have achieved preliminary results in their research on "MPC - HMAC Multiparty Signature Algorithm Implementation." Currently, iString is working with Xianbing Technology to improve the security, stability and efficiency of the MPC - HMAC Multiparty Signature Algorithm based on its correct implementation.
In his speech, Wade Wang, the founder of Safeheron Lab, discussed how digital security storage and transfer will be a major challenge for companies in the future, and highlighted that addressing digital security challenges related to cryptography and privacy technology is a key area of focus for Safeheron Lab. He also noted that the research report "Design and Implementation of HMAC Algorithm Based on MPC Theory" by Professor Ma, which is the privacy algorithm topic of Safeheron Lab, has significant theoretical and practical value and provides important guidance for the privacy computing-based commercial products launched by Safeheron.
Max He, Co-founder and Chief Scientist of Safeheron Lab, presented the accomplishments of "Safeheron Lab for Privacy Computing and Digital Security" in 2022 and engaged in a detailed discussion with Professor Ma on the research topics of both parties. He highlighted Safeheron Lab's impressive achievements in 2022, which include the deep application of trusted computing technology, the completion of an algorithm puzzle and basic platform coverage, numerous international certifications such as ISO27001, and a significant improvement in technology branding.
Yu Xian, the founder of SlowMist Technology, then presented the 2022 Blockchain Security and Anti-Money Laundering Analysis Annual Review from SlowMist's perspective, using data to demonstrate the vulnerability of the blockchain industry and the complexity of its opponents. He also stated that addressing these existing challenges is the goal of the joint lab partners and that the joint lab partners' exceptional scientific research abilities, technical capabilities and results transformation capabilities are expected to further improve blockchain security.
Founder of imToken, Qiu Haibin, spoke about how to lower the threshold for users while ensuring the security of funds in terms of blockchain infrastructure construction. He also shared his thoughts on the private key depository method for the next generation wallet. He highlighted that security incidents have been increasing and the issue of user fund security needs to be resolved urgently, and that RongSense Technology has begun working on TSS-based Wallet 3.0 and is dedicated to providing users with a better private key storage solution.
Professor Ma's scientific research report provided a valuable topic for the conference's discussion session and members of the partners actively shared their insights on the research and product application development of trusted computing technology, including blockchain security. They reached a broad consensus that Turing partners should not forget their original intention, adhere to the theoretical guidance of Professor Andrew Yao's MPC, always shoulder the responsibility of promoting the development of blockchain security, and promoting the transformation of scientific and technological achievements of trusted computing. They should also focus on benefiting the industry with first-class products. Additionally, the exchange of information among Turing partners will strive to be continuous and normalized, gradually forming a warm, learning and development-oriented healthy atmosphere, and working together to deepen the integration of trusted computing and blockchain security.
