What's going on in the world of cryptography in Hyperledger? What tools do we have? How do we use them? What problems are we trying to solve? We have gathered 5 panelists across all different areas of cryptography--from theoreticians to practical implementers--to help try to answer these questions in an interactive discussion. We will summarize the state of cryptography in Hyperledger and then break out into smaller groups to discuss various different topics, including (but not limited to) zero knowledge proofs, Fabric cryptography tools, cryptographic interfaces and tips for using them, post-quantum cryptography, and using cryptography for verifiable credentials. Participants will be free to jump around different groups in order to ensure that all of their questions, comments, and requests for Hyperledger cryptography are answered.
