Blockchain: The Key to IoT Cybersecurity

IoT endpoints are a top target of cyberattacks. But centralized security architectures like PKI leave deployments susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks. Blockchain at the edge could be the answer.

In distributed systems, public key infrastructure (PKI) presents a number of challenges that leave IoT deployments susceptible to attacks. By leveraging an architecture like blockchain, single points of failure can be eliminated by establishing trust among nodes on a peer-to-peer network.

In this article, developers will learn:

  • How a multi-chain blockchain can help provide IoT networks with distributed edge security
  • Which service can sync local IoT blockchains with distributed ledgers for anomaly detection
  • About enhancing network security for real-time sensors, actuators, and control systems
