Securing Critical IoT Infrastructure with Blockchain

Securing Critical IoT Infrastructure with Blockchain

The rapidly growing world of connected smart devices presents enormous security risks and the existing security solutions find it hard to keep pace. Be it Smart Cities with sensors and digital management systems for energy, utilities, transportation, etc, or smart homes and offices with a host of connected and smart devices, connected cars, UAVs or even Industrial control systems.

A new Blockchain solution leverages digital signature based identity and authentication for humans, machines and data, thereby securing connected devices tightly ring-fencing critical infrastructure.

The next-gen military-grade security system can protect critical infrastructure and connected devices in the Internet of Things field. A Singapore and India-based startup provides a security system to protect smart cities, autonomous mobility technology devices, and other IoT systems against cyber-threats.

Block Armour released IoT Armour, its Blockchain-enabled security solution designed specifically for connected devices, related critical infrastructure and IoT networks. 

The technology supplies an enhanced Software-Defined Perimeter using private permission Blockchain and TLS technology. Digital signatures allow users to authenticate and authorize recognized devices within an IoT network, securing communication between such devices within the network and preventing untoward or unauthorized devices to hack into these now protected networks, according to iotforall.com.

Abhijit Dhongade, CTO of Block Armour said: “Emerging technology offers opportunities to secure sensor networks, IoT devices and smart infrastructure in bold new ways. And we are proud to lead the way.”
