Blockchain ResearchBlockchain augmented with cryptographic protocols enable multiple organizations to safely handle confidential data.
Fujitsu Research of America (FRA) develops blockchain-based security technologies to safely and securely handle confidential data between multiple organizations. Blockchains are inherently resistant to data modification—once recorded, the data in a block cannot be easily altered retroactively. The most prominent characteristic of a blockchain is that it provides information sharing with high transparency and reliability—without requiring management by a specific trusted organization.
Blockchain has enormous untapped potential to realize digital transformation – in streamlining complex multi-party operations, in leveraging the power of multitude where no trust exists and in democratizing processes that require the stewardship of a few controlling entities today.
- Hyperledger Cactus: is a blockchain integration tool designed to allow users to securely integrate different blockchains. Fujitsu is a founding member of this project, in collaboration with Accenture. In particular, Fujitsu has open-sourced its ConnectionChain technology to standardize blockchain integration in this project.
- Hyperledger Ursa: is a shared cryptographic library, it enables implementations to avoid duplicating other cryptographic work and hopefully increase security in the process. The library is an opt-in repository (for Hyperledger and non Hyperledger projects) to place and use crypto. Hyperledger Ursa consists of sub-projects, which are cohesive implementations of cryptographic code or interfaces to cryptographic code.
