Device identity is recorded and validated on an immutable ledger
Identity is essential to trust and security. The Atonomi trust environment harnesses the power of blockchain technology to provide an immutable record of identity for IoT devices.
Developers and manufacturers can download the Atonomi Embedded SDK so each of their unique device identities can be written to the blockchain and continually validated by Atonomi.
The very small footprint of our embedded SDK means that developers and manufacturers can provide the security of Atonomi identity registration and reputation tracking on the small, resource-constrained, devices that make up the IoT.
This immutable device identity helps open a new world of trusted machine-to-machine interactions—which are increasingly required for the rapidly growing Internet of Things.
Reputation is calculated and recorded based on monitored transactions.
By tracking device reputation, Atonomi helps detect and identify poorly performing or compromised devices. This helps organizations maintain service levels while protecting against the dangers of devices that have been hacked or in other ways compromised. Atonomi uses machine behaviors, records and analyzes device interactions, and constantly searches for changes and other aberrations.
Our Reputation feature generates device scores based on unique behavioral signatures representing varying degrees of security, commercial, service, and other quality measurements.
Together with our immutable identity, reputation is a key enabler of a future consisting of trusted devices securely interacting in an autonomous manner.
Trust and reputation enable security which in turn enables interoperability among IoT devices. Trusted interoperability of IoT devices is essential for the secure exchange of data and commerce at scale. By facilitating trusted interoperability between devices, Atonomi solves a fundamental problem of security in IoT and facilitates an innovation hub for the developer community.
Industrial IoT devices often need to extend autonomous interoperability to include resources beyond the domain of the manufacturing facility. Smart cities are employing automation to seamlessly connect IoT devices and resources to lower power consumption, reduce traffic congestion, enhance air quality, increase safety, and improve overall livability across many different device types and manufacturers.
Atonomi’s blockchain-based tokenization of identity and reputation services enables fluid interactions between IoT devices across the Atonomi trust environment.
We tokenize the identity and reputation of devices on the Atonomi, leveraging Ethereum, while utilizing the Atonomi token as a means to drive ecosystem participation. Key participants such as OEM/device manufacturers, distributors, device owners and auditors will receive Atonomi tokens for participating in the Atonomi trust environment.
An open platform that encourages third-party development
Atonomi has been designed for others to build upon and extend the services to meet the additional needs of new and existing market segments. The identity validation and device reputation features can be integrated into services such as smart cities, industrial IoT, healthcare, smart homes, and a world of other opportunities. Atonomi’s extensibility enables device developers and OEMs to create their own custom, vertical-specific solutions while integrating the identity and reputation tracking of Atonomi.
Download the Atonomi Embedded SDK
Atonomi Embedded SDK
It’s easy to give your IoT devices the trust and security of blockchain-based immutable device identity and reputation tracking. Just download our Atonomi Embedded SDK from GitHub.
With a footprint of less than 100 KB (just 60KB for most devices) the Atonomi Embedded SDK is a testament to the precision coding of our developers. With our long experience working within IoT, we know that to meet deployment demands IoT devices frequently are resource constrained, measuring memory and storage in kilobytes, not megabytes or gigabytes.
