Blockchain in the Industrial Internet of Things

Lakshmana Kumar Ramasamy, Seifedine Kadry


Blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT) are separately regarded as highly capable popular technologies. Blockchain is a database used for decentralized transaction purposes. It provides novel directions to store and manage data, whereas the IoT relates to the propagation of linked smart machines through the Internet. A technology significant to the manufacturing business, which is currently experiencing a digital revolution through new equipment and data, leading to the Industrial Internet of Things, or the IIoT. The IIoT has advanced swiftly, but privacy issues and safety vulnerabilities remain concerns. Incorporating blockchain technology with its decentralization and embedded cryptographic principles with the IIoT creates Blockchain for Industrial Internet of Things (BIIoT) which can overcome these security requirements and motivate the further development of Industry 4.0. This book gives a detailed survey of BIIoT and discusses all relevant aspects of this concept, including structural design and open research directions.

Key features
  • The first book of its kind to addresses the emergent Blockchain in the Industrial Internet of things (BIIoT)
  • Explores basic and high-level concepts of Blockchain techniques and advanced aspects in various domains.
  • Includes an overview of the mining, consensus algorithms, smart property key themes required for implementation in various domains.
  • This book provides fundamental data structures and algorithms used to build a typical Blockchain.
  • Helps programmers begin their journey with the public and private Blockchain development
