Virtual resources & blockchain for configuration management in IoT

Mayra Samaniego, Ralph Deters: Virtual resources & blockchain for configuration management in IoT. In: Journal of Ubiquitous Systems & Pervasive Networks, 9 (2), pp. 01-13, 2017.

Abstract

Until now, most systems for Internet of Things (IoT) management, have been designed in a Cloud-centric manner, getting benefits from the unified platform that the Cloud offers. However, a Cloud-centric infrastructure mainly achieves static sensor and data streaming systems, which do not support the direct configuration management of IoT components. To address this issue, a virtualization of IoT components (Virtual Resources) is introduced at the edge of the IoT network. This research also introduces permission-based Blockchain protocols to handle the provisioning of Virtual Resources directly onto edge devices. The architecture presented by this research focuses on the use of Virtual Resources and Blockchain protocols as management tools to distribute configuration tasks towards the edge of the IoT network. Results from lab experiments demonstrate the successful deployment and communication performance (response time in milliseconds) of Virtual Resources on two edge platforms, Raspberry Pi and Edison board. This work also provides performance evaluations of two permission-based blockchain protocol approaches. The first blockchain approach is a Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) in the Cloud, Bluemix. The second blockchain approach is a private cluster hosted in a Fog network, Multichain
