Abstract

The use of Internet of Things (IoT) has introduced genuine concerns regarding data security and its privacy when data are in collection, exchange, and use. Meanwhile, blockchain offers a distributed and encrypted ledger designed to allow the creation of immutable and tamper-proof records of data at different locations. While blockchain may enhance IoT with innate security, data integrity, and autonomous governance, IoT data management and its allocation in blockchain still remain an architectural concern. In this article, we propose a novel context-aware mechanism for on-chain data allocation in IoT-blockchain systems. Specifically, we design a data controller based on fuzzy logic to calcula..
