October 26, 2020

Let’s pick up from where we left off with the previous article on CordaCon 2020 developer highlights — day one. Take your pick of these exciting talks from the second day of our annual flagship event CordaCon 2020.

Beyond Blockchain: How Confidential Computing is the Last Piece of the Market Transformation Jigsaw — R3 CTO Richard Brown

Confidential Computing provides the missing piece of the puzzle:

  • Conclave uses Confidential Computing and Intel SGX to provide assurance to users that data will be processed in a secure and tamper-proof way.
  • Conclave enables service providers to build new privacy-preserving solutions for market-level collaboration.

Conclave: Multi-party Computation Made Easy — R3 Lead Platform Engineer Mike Hearn

Imagine a sealed bid auction in which:
1. User 1 proposes a bid to the enclave (recorded on the ledger).
2. User 2 proposes a bid to the enclave (recorded on the ledger).
3. User 3 (auctioneer) receives the output from the enclave (the winner) and stores it on the ledger.
As a result, User 3 never sees the bids.

Performance — Now, Then and What’s to Come — R3 Software Engineer Dimos Raptis

Performance-related improvements:

  • Tuning options for Artemis to control flush/ack frequencies.
  • p2p message compression.
