A Trust Evaluation Gateway for Distributed Blockchain IoT Network
As the number of Internet of massive Things (IoT) applications in vehicles, factory machinery, smart buildings and city infrastructure grows, a secure and automated solution of enabling a mesh network for transactional processes is an important demand. However, the trust evaluation among those unknown IoT devices which communicate and trade to each other is still the high demand in distributed BC IoT network. The idea of the trust evaluation gateway is first proposed for distributed BC IoT network. Finally, the three types of trust evaluation functionfor Machine to Individual (M2I), Machine to Machine (M2M), and Individual to Individual (I2I), selectively, are proposed and provided an appropriate solution for solving the online authentication problem in distributed BC IoT network.
