CS4203 P01 - Report on Blockchain Technology, Application, and Issues

First practical done as part of CS4203 “Computer Security”, which I took during my 5th year. The aim of the practical was to write a report describing what blockchain is and how it works, along with 2 separate areas of research or commercial interest. The description of the separate areas had to discuss functionality, current and potential applications, and security concerns or problems.

In addition to the above, the practical was to be done in a style of an industrial report to a line manager who was aware of cryptography and general computer security, but who might not have been aware of current trends, tools, or techniques.

My submission achieved a grade of 19.0/20.
