By 2020 there will be more than 50 billion IoT devices in every imaginable area of daily life. How secure will they be?
The Internet of Things will be everywhere – in industrial installations, in cars, in the public space, at home and in the human body.
It also means that vast new amounts of data will be generated. Data that will give new insights and new possibilities for the future. In this enormous big data scenario trust remains an issue. How do we know, that IoT data really is delivered by a specific sensor? How can we be sure this data hasn't been tampered with?
The ubirch secure IoT infrastructure uses strong cryptography to address these issues. We've implemented a complete cryptographic public/private key pipeline that starts with the smallest sensor and ends in the blockchain.
Security by Design
The ubirch platform ist designed from the start to ensure that IoT data is trustworthy and secure.
It keeps track of the identity of IoT devices.
It checks the integrity of incoming data.
It prepares the data for further use with machine learning and external services.
It anchors or stores it in the blockchain for timestamping and immutablity.
