Hashing It Out #21: Mythril - Bernhard Mueller

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

The famous Bernhard Mueller joined us today to talk about the fantastic work being done to beef up his already amazing tool, Mythril. The new Mythril platform beefs up the symbolic analyzer as well as adding static analysis tools and linters (Maru), a dynamic analyzer and input fuzzer (Harvey) and an API for easy integration into a developer's processes. We dive into what brought Bernhard to write Mythril and how it's taken off as a premier auditing tool. We also get into the future of security tools and how the processes being developed today will inform best practices of the future.

Hashing It Out #11: NuCypher - John "Tux" Pacific & David Nunez

In this episode, we dive into NuCypher. NuCypher is an encryption library for managing key access on decentralized networks. We talk about proxy re-encryption, how access is granted, and the creation of their node network. We also discuss the topic of fully homomorphic encryption and the role of privacy in future decentralized applications.

Hashing It Out #10: TrueBit - Harley Swick

TrueBit is one of the more impressive decentralized projects, and we're really excited to have had the chance to interview Harley Swick, core developer on the project. We talk to him about TrueBit, how it works, it's significance, how it differentiates itself from other off-chain computation projects. We go over some of the many, many applications of decentralized off-chain computation projects and how they can improve world resource utilization. Amazing and really exciting stuff!

Hashing It Out #9: Rick Dudley

The prodigious Rick Dudley talks with us about his work as a consensus subject matter expert. He lends us his experience and wisdom in consulting for the creation of Byzantine Fault Tolerant systems. We also delve into what it takes to build a completely decentralized public data storage system and why it's such a difficult problem.

Hashing It Out #8: Mahnush Movahedi

We talk with Mahnush Movahedi of DFINITY to explain the fundamental innovation behind DFINITY's consensus system. She explains how threshold relay works, how groups are determined in consensus, and how cryptographic deterministic randomness drive consensus as a fast and light-weight substitute for Proof of Work. We learn about how this impacts the architecture for state and network protocol design. This episode really shows why Mahnush, a PhD Yale postdoctoral computer scientist with a focus on multiparty computation, would choose DFINITY as the project to join to innovate on consensus protocols.
