  • DLT/Blockchain as a Building Block for Enterprise Transformation

    Distributed ledger technology (or DLT - frequently referred to as "blockchain") has enjoyed a spectacular rise to prominence in recent years. Amidst the excitement and hype, however, much work remains to be done before its promise is realized by enterprises. Drawing upon three decades experience in enterprise solution development for large enterprises and government agencies, the author shares his views in this article about where things stand and what remains to be done. For clarity’s sake, my focus will be on private, permissioned DLT deployments where the parties are known to one another within an enterprise ecosystem.

  • On the Collaborative Governance of Decentralized Edge Microclouds with Blockchain-Based Distributed Ledgers

    Today's commercial model for edge computing services consists in lightweight devices at the network edge connected through the Internet to remote cloud data centers. Microclouds are an alternative vision of edge computing, where the cloud infrastructure runs at the network edge leveraging decentralized resource contributions of a community. But current attempts to build such microclouds lack a collaborative governance system to operate successfully. In this paper we discuss the opportunity to implement with blockchain technologies key services to enable the decentralized collaborative governance of microclouds. A multiagent approach could further contribute to improve the efficiency in the decision making in the collaborative governance service.

  • Streaming Data Payment Protocol (SDPP) for the Internet of Things

    As the deployments of IoT systems grow for a wide range of applications, there are new use-cases emerging where the organizations or individuals that own sensor devices are different from the individuals or organizations that have use for the data from those devices. In such settings it is helpful for the data consumer to be able to effortlessly get data streams in return for monetary payments. The advent of cryptocurrency technologies have made the establishment of bidirectional automatic data micro-payment channels (with data flowing in one direction and micro-payments in the other) feasible. We present an application layer protocol called the streaming data payment protocol (SDPP) which embodies this very idea. The protocol also makes provisions for the data provider to send automated invoices and the data consumer to provide signed receipts for data to be stored on an immutable distributed ledger for auditing and dispute resolution purposes. We present an implementation of SDPP using TCP for data transport and IOTA as both cryptocurrency and a distributed ledger.

  • Exploring Research in Blockchain for Healthcare and a Roadmap for the Future

    Healthcare is a data-intensive domain, once a considerable volume of data is daily to monitoring patients, managing clinical research, producing medical records, and processing medical insurance claims. While the focus of applications of blockchain in practice has been to build distributed ledgers involving virtual tokens, the impetus of this emerging technology has now extended to the medical domain. With the increased popularity, it is crucial to study how this technology accompanied with a system for smart contracts can support and challenge the healthcare domain for all interrelated actors (patients, physicians, insurance companies, regulators) and involved assets (e.g. patients' data, physician's data, equipment's and drug's supply chain, etc.). The contributions of this paper are the following: (i) report the results of a systematic literature review conducted to identify, extract, evaluate and synthesize the studies on the symbiosis of blockchain in healthcare; (ii) summarize and categorize existing benefits/challenges on incorporating blockchain in healthcare domain; (iii) provide a framework that will facilitate new research activities; and (iv) establish the state of evidence with in-depth assessment.

  • Tango: The Beginning-A Semi-Synchronous Iota-Tangle Type Distributed Ledger with Periodic Pulsed Entries

    A central problem with distributed ledger technologies involves the latency that must be incurred in processing and verifying transactions to be accepted as permanent records in the ledger. In many applications, high latency is simply not a tolerable aspect of the governance of the ledger. To help reduce latency, we offer a distributed ledger architecture, Tango, that mimics the Iota-tangle design as articulated by Popov [1] in his seminal paper. A main idea is the introduction of a semi-synchronous transaction entry protocol layer. We model periodic pulsed injections into the evaluation layer from the entry layer.

  • A Vademecum on Blockchain Technologies: When, Which and How

    Blockchain is a technology making the shared registry concept from distributed systems a reality for a number of application domains, from the cryptocurrency one to potentially any industrial system requiring decentralized, robust, trusted and automated decision making in a multi-stakeholder situation. Nevertheless, the actual advantages in using blockchain instead of any other traditional solution (such as centralized databases) are not completely understood to date, or at least there is a strong need for a vademecum guiding designers toward the right decision about when to adopt blockchain or not, which kind of blockchain better meets use-case requirements, and how to use it. In this article we aim at providing the community with such a vademecum, while giving a general presentation of blockchain that goes beyond its usage in Bitcoin and surveying a selection of the vast literature that emerged in the last few years. We draw the key requirements and their evolution when passing from permissionless to permissioned blockchains, presenting the differences between proposed and experimented consensus mechanisms, and describing existing blockchain platforms.

  • Building Secure Infrastructure for Cloud Computing Using Blockchain

    The Blockchain is evolving as one of the most promising and resourceful technologies of cloud infrastructure security. Blockchain is meant to store, read and validate transactions in a distributed database system. It has the ability to enhance security and confidentiality through undisputable shared distributed ledger on cloud nodes. Tampering of Blockchain is enormously thought-provoking due to the use of cryptographic data structures. In this paper we present Blockchain and compare the various platforms on which blockchain can be implemented. The paper illustrates the use of Blockchain applications for building secure infrastructure of cloud computing.

  • Enhancing IoT Security and Privacy Using Distributed Ledgers with IOTA and the Tangle

    The Internet of Things (IoT) devices currently rely on centralized, brokered communication models which call for a number of security flaws and threats. Privacy & security remain a challenge owing to the existing systems being centralized - creating a single point of failure. In this paper, we lay out an architecture for incorporating a concept similar to Blockchain - the technology that underpins the cryptocurrency Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies to provide decentralized security and privacy for IoT devices. Currently, the issue with most IoT devices is that they lack the processing power, storage and computational overhead to run consensus algorithms to be an active part of the Blockchain network. The current issue with the blockchain on the other hand, is its low scalability and low number of transactions per second. We present an innovative approach using a technology called IOTA. This addresses some of the most important problems with existing blockchain infrastructure such as being able to run on lightweight devices with constrained memory. We eliminate transaction fees and the concept of mining which requires a large amount of processing power to compete with other miners. IOTA's main component is the Tangle, a guided acyclic graph (DAG) for transaction storage. We discuss creation of two IoT applications on the tangle - a smart utility meter system and a smart car transaction system which are connected to internet through Low Power Wide Area IoT networks.
