Hyperledger Ursa is a modular, flexible cryptography library that is intended for—but not limited to—use by other blockchain projects in Hyperledger. Ursa’s objective is to make it safer and easier for distributed ledger projects to use existing, time tested, and trusted cryptographic libraries as well as new cryptographic library implementations being developed. The main advantage is that blockchain engineers can configure it to only include crypto implementations that meet their application requirements.

Attendees will get an introduction to Ursa and the role of a crypto library in the development of open source blockchain. Marta will speak to current development efforts on Ursa, including plans to support pairing-based signatures, threshold signatures, and aggregate signatures, as well as also zero-knowledge primitives like SNARKs. Attendees will also learn about how to tap into Ursa for their own development projects as well as ways they can contribute to the library.
