FIPS 140-2 Perspectives on IoT Devices in a Blockchain Setting (E12b)
IoT devices are quickly becoming an important force in contemporary Internet-based networks. The security of IoT deployments is a developing process and challenges remain. Another emerging technology with security potential is the Blockchain 2 development, particularly Blockchain decentralized ledger services. We examine how IoT and Blockchain components can provide secure intelligent networks whose enhanced functionality meet the evolving needs of business, manufacturing and other sectors. A key component is the HSM device that offers strong cryptographic protection for essential crypto-variables and executables. FIPS 140-2 perspectives are offered on component validations.
