IoT 2019 - Advancements in Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) for the Internet of Things (IoT)



VenueOnline, Online Online



Topics/Call fo Papers

Internet of Things (IoT) is paving the way for different kinds of devices to be connected and properly communicate at a mass scale. However, conventional mechanisms used to sustain security and privacy cannot be directly applied to IoT whose topology is increasingly becoming decentralized. Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) on the other hand comprises varying forms of decentralized data structures that provide immutability through cryptographically linking blocks of data. To be able to build reliable, autonomous and trusted IoT platforms, DLT has the potential to provide security, privacy and decentralized operation while adhering to the limitations of IoT devices. The marriage of IoT and DLT technology is not very recent. In fact many projects have been focusing on this interesting combination to address the challenges of smart cities, smart grids, internet of everything and other decentralized applications, most based on blockchain structures. In this special issue, the focus is on the new and broader technical problems associated with the DLT- based security and backend platform solutions for IoT devices and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Distributed ledger theory in IoT.
• Identity management in DLT for IoT.
• Novel IoT applications based on DLT including blockchains.
• Experimental studies based on DLT-based IoT schemes.
• Scalability, Security, Privacy, Storage optimizations in DLT for IoT.
• Auditability and privacy compliance of sensor data using DLT.
• Use of DLT in cloud, edge and fog computing.
• DLT applied to smart cities, smart grids and internet of everything.
