Date: Thursday, September 26, 2019, 17:15 h

Location: BIN 2.A.01


This talk will present some of the research work done within the RIPPLE-UBRI research grant awarded by Ripple to the University of Luxembourg. We will address in this topic the performance measurement of Interledger connectors, used to connect multiple ledgers. The talk will introduce the Interledger protocol architecture, highlight the several layers used for payments across multiple ledgers, and address the monitoring of performance and security of a connector using system tracing tools.
