What we're about
Upcoming events (4)
Catastrophes have a way of resetting fundamentals, and the fundamental question Indicio has worked on over the past year is: how can we trust digital data? This problem is now endemic to life because all our information is becoming digital.
The exchange of digital information appears on the surface to be efficient, but in actuality is saddled with risk and redundant processes, all in the name of attempting to determine whether information is true and trustworthy. This is costing us a fortune in mitigation, poor user experience, fraud, and theft.
Decentralized identity, specifically Trusted Data Ecosystems, developed through the use of Hyperledger Indy, Hyperledger Aries, Hyperledger Ursa and Cardea, the Linux Foundation Public Health project, solve all of these problems and add value to existing identity systems.
Hyperledger Indy provides tools and libraries for providing digital identities rooted on blockchains or other distributed ledgers. These identities are interoperable across administrative domains and applications. Indy has the power to enable the decentralization of identity and support vertical markets with identity and trusted data solutions.
Ken Ebert, CTO of Indico, and Scott Harris, COO of Indicio will discuss how Indicio designed trusted data ecosystems to easily integrate into existing infrastructure, how easy they are to update, and easy to interoperate among one another—and how an open-source base enables continuous, sustainable improvement and innovation.
Join us for a **remote** Hyperledger meetup on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 hosted by Hyperledger Kansas City.
Tune in to hear Mic Bowman, a principal engineer at Intel Labs, Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee member, and computer science Ph.D. holder, speak on the Private Data Objects lab. Specifically, he will cover how to integrate code from a lab into Fabric.
Private Data Objects (PDO) enables sharing of data and coordinating action amongst mutually distrusting parties. Interaction is mediated through a “smart contract” that defines data access and updates policies that are carried with the object regardless of where it resides or how often it changes hands. The smart contracts policies are enforced through execution in a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE).
PDO provides benefits for both application developers seeking to define and implement privacy-preserving distributed ledgers, and for service providers seeking to provide blockchain services.

Needs a location
Join this session to take a deeper dive into blockchain interoperability and hear real-life examples of how two key Hyperledger projects are addressing challenges.
During two lightning talks, you’ll hear from project maintainers, Venkatraman Ramakrishna, from Hyperledger Labs Weaver, and Peter Somogyvari, Hyperledger Cactus Lead, Accenture, providing an overview of their respective projects.
Venkatraman and Peter will each discuss progress updates, past and current contributions, and plans to ensure these different blockchain interoperability initiatives can work cohesively, while maintaining standardization and avoiding redundancy.
We also encourage attendees to attend the Hyperledger Budapest Meetup event on interoperability using the Perun framework taking place on October 14th from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET. Please feel free to register for this event as well using the link below:
Peter Somogyvari is a technology architect at Accenture where he is one of the maintainers of the top level Hyperledger project called Cactus that aims to be an enterprise grade framework for blockchain integration/interoperability. He was a speaker at Hyperledger Global Forum both in 2020 and 2021.
Venkatraman Ramakrishna (Rama) is a Senior Researcher in IBM Research-India (Bangalore). Following a B. Tech. from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur and an MS and PhD (in ubiquitous computing) from UCLA, he worked in the Bing Infrastructure team in Microsoft, building reliable service deployment software. At IBM Research, he worked in mobile computing and security before changing his research focus to blockchain in 2015. He has worked on enterprise blockchain solutions in trade finance and shared KYC using Hyperledger Fabric, and also on performance measurement and analysis of the Fabric platform. Lately, he has been creating tools and protocols for interoperability between DLT platforms and networks.
Ramakrishna has co-authored a book on Hyperledger Fabric development, presently in its second edition, titled "Blockchain with Hyperledger Fabric: Build decentralized applications using Hyperledger Fabric 2", written several research papers for conferences and journals, and holds several patents from the USPTO.
In this virtual event, Matthew Zand will briefly review the Hyperledger family (DLTs, libraries and tools) and its ecosystem. Then will review key components and architecture of Hyperledger Fabric, followed by reviewing the latest features of Hyperledger Fabric V2. And lastly, he'll discuss best practices for migrating to Hyperledger Fabric V2.
Topics covered in this webinar are discussed in depth in his below book, Hands-On Smart Contract Development with Hyperledger Fabric V2: Building Enterprise Blockchain Applications (which is endorsed by many professionals including Brian Behlendorf).
Matt will also give away 5 free e-books as well as a coupon code for accessing my book for 1 month for free. Direct message Matt on Linkedin for details.
There event will be 45 minutes for presentation, followed by 15 minutes for Q/A
