Abstract

From purposing the idea of delving deep into the world of Internet of things (IOT) and blockchain (BC) security and trying to determine if blockchain could be a solution for millions of IOT devices currently in circulation that have little to no security implementation that may contain sensitive user data. IOT devices in 2021, are now imbedded into daily life from Smart bulbs to commercial scale operations. The following research has established using a blockchain that enables the use of smart contracts (SC) such as Ethereum (ETH) would allow developers to implement security rules or policies that were never intended to be implemented into mass produced IOT devices.
