Note from the CEO: Remember public-key infrastructure (PKI)? Yeah, me neither but I guess it was big deal in the late 90’s (last week is so 10 years ago) and was the blockchain of that era. So, maybe (just maybe) this blockchain stuff is a tiny bit overhyped. Just thinking.
“Is history repeating itself with blockchain technology?
Blockchain – the online general ledger or database on steroids – is considered by its proponents to be inherently secure, because it has no single owner or point of control and immutable records of transactions are maintained by independent parties.
However, Luther Martin, distinguished technologist at HPE Security, says we’ve heard all this before – about two decades ago. We recently had the chance to catch up with Martin, who expanded on the similarities between blockchain and another blockbuster technology.”
