Blockchain for
Industry 4.0

 

Manufacturing companies are opening their factories to the digital transformation. All kinds of smart manufacturing devices are multiplying. The industry 4.0 needs to manage robots, sensors, clients inputs in real time.

With Vottun interoperable protocol, manufacturers can accelerate their digital transformation with blockchain. Companies can, for example, certify their devices in a permissioned blockchain to prevent hacking, or track their supply chain to optimize multi-party processes.

For the industry, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a techy dream. However, there is a critical issue that IoT developers must solve to make this dream come true: Security. If hackers can gain access to control the IoT ecosystem, they can made devices do unexpected and scary things, such as modify outputs of your operating lines which is a tremendous risk if these changes goes undetected.

The current technical scope for security of the IoT is somewhat limited. It’s reduced to your account name, password, and potentially a Two-Factor Authorization system. Other solutions to security have been explored through biometrics such as facial recognition, fingerprint scanners, and even voice recognition. The idea behind biometric security is that each person has unique facial/vocal/biological characteristics that can’t be duplicated. Therefore this should be leveraged to give only those who have been biometrically identified access to the IoT platform. But here’s the thing: the technology for biometric verification is far from ready.

Blockchain iOT Security with certified devices

With so many challenges, the approach that is gaining traction is to solve the security problem of the IoT through blockchain technology by operating IoT in permissioned private blockchains such as HDAC or the pseudo-blockchain IOTA projects.

With Vottun protocol, manufacturers can certified their devices to be used in these permissioned blockchain iot security and solve the security issue operating in this new “free of hacking” blockchain environment.

Through the use of the Vottun protocol, as you certified your devices, you can define your IoT smart contracts for specific iot and blockchains.

For example, these smart contracts are being utilized by the HDAC token through something called an IoT contract. An IoT contract allows you to turn a HDAC token to be repurposed for a specific function. How can you use them? You can turn an HDAC token to act as the key to access the ecosystem of electronically connected devices within your home or you can turn the HDAC token to function as the unique key to start your car.

Future of iOT using Blockchain

Vottun is one of the best blockchain iot companies because we can predict the future of iot using blockchain. Our Vottun protocol gives you complete control over the ecosystem of devices hosted on HDAC’s platform because they can’t be accessed without the repurposed HDAC token. For example, your future Tesla won’t be able to turn on without the HDAC token that has been repurposed to specifically function as its key.

With Vottun protocol you can manage your devices certificates and smart contracts in HDAC or others IoT blockchains.

This gives you complete control over the ecosystem of devices hosted on HDAC’s platform because they can’t be accessed without the repurposed HDAC token. For example, your future Tesla won’t be able to turn on without the HDAC token that has been repurposed to specifically function as its key.

With Vottun protocol you can manage your devices certificates and smart contracts in HDAC or others IoT blockchains.
