What happens if your data needs to be more secure than merely stored in a file? Cryptographic data structures are in the focus of the public – called blockchain or distributed ledger technology (DLT). But why are these data structures now so hyped? And what is behind the hype, i.e., Bitcoin? I got interested in the topic from the perspective of developing reliable industrial production systems for car manufacturers producing your individualized dream car, and I will present our research and application with the internet of things (IoT) and DLT.

The talk will be conducted in English
