DecAuth: Decentralized Authentication Scheme For IoT Device Using Ethereum Blockchain
Published 2019 · Computer Science
Internet of Things (IoT) has lots of attention in the last decade. The connected IoT devices are more than the total world population. Due to its low cost, easy to deploy, and simple to implement, application areas are large like smart city, smart home, smart transportation, environment monitoring, agriculture and many more. There exists some security and privacy challenges in IoT system. The device identification is one of the challenges in any IoT application. Authentication is one of the processes to identify the device. Though some work has been done on this problem, most of these are using a centralized system. In this paper, we have proposed a distributed authentication system using the Blockchain technology The implementation of the proposed authentication is done on Ethereum platform for its better results in order to justify it as a superior scheme.
