Recently, we presented the ResearchProof Registry at ITASEC, the main Italian Conference on Cybersecurity, which was held in Pisa between the 12th and the 15th of February.

The Research Proof Registry is the core component of the platform, which allows to store a resource (such as a preliminary research result) and protect it with an internationally valid, legal and verifiable timestamp through a public blockchain, thus proving the authorship of scientific results prior to their dissemination.

The Italian Conference on CyberSecurity (ITASEC) is an annual event supported and organized by the Cybersecurity National Lab.

The 2019 edition has taken place in Pisa and it gathered Italian researchers and professionals working in the field of cybersecurity, from both private and public sectors, and include academia, industries, research institutions, and government.

The Workshop & Tutorial Day consisted of scientific workshops, gathering specialists on hot and advanced topics in cybersecurity.
The Conference included parallel and concurrent tracks with scientific and technical contributions on all the aspects of cybersecurity, including interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary hot topics. There was also a Stakeholder track, that included Keynote Speeches, Invited Talks, Vision Speeches, Panels, and Special Sessions; the Demo track, including prototypes developed by industries, and presentation of research groups; the Start-up track: a stage for domestic cybersecurity startups; and finally, the Vendor sessions track, where commercial products from the event’s sponsors were presented.

Our CTO, Federico Lombardi, also lecturer in Cybersecurity at University of Southampton, presented the project.
