Security in IoT Networks Using Blockchain Technology

T. Sureshkumar and Dr.M. Vijayakumar

Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of the devices that senses the data from the surroundings and communicating through the internet for the further processing. The IoT devices produce a wide variety of the data and such data may face a several number of security attacks. The development of the IoT demands a high standard of security in terms of privacy, veracity, consistency and other security features. Because of the resource and the memory restrictions, the security mechanisms used for the ordinary networks cannot be much efficient. For such reasons, instead of a centralized approach, the distributed data base system called the blockchain (BC) approach is used. This produces better results in terms of security factors such as security, privacy etc. when compared with the other security mechanisms that are in practice.
