Blockchain is emerging as a disruptive and transformational technology with great potential, benefits, and impact on organizations and government services. Blockchain offers an innovative approach to storing information, executing transactions, performing functions, and establishing trust in an open environment. The pervasiveness of blockchain technology in various fields is changing our lives. Industry, agriculture, health, and even personal life are experiencing a revolution in how personal data are collected, communicated, processed, and stored. In recent years, blockchain technology has begun to be used in full swing. Many consider blockchain a technology breakthrough for cryptography and cybersecurity, with use cases ranging from globally deployed cryptocurrency systems like Bitcoin, smart contracts, smart grids over the Internet of Things, etc. Although blockchain has received growing interest in academia and industry in recent years, the security and privacy of blockchains continue to be at the center of the debate when deploying blockchain in different applications. Therefore, the goal of this workshop is to provide a cutting-edge venue for the scientific community to explore the latest ideas, models, and innovative applications in the domain of security and privacy while deploying blockchain technologies and services to improve the efficiency and transparency of private and public service provisions in a variety of domains.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
– Novel Security Models and Architectures for Blockchain
– Blockchain Attacks on Existing Systems
– Blockchain Authentication and authorization
– Security of Consensus Protocols
