These dense populations combined with complex infrastructure create huge opportunities to improve billions of lives and generate new businesses. Smart cities are coming—but so are hackers and other bad actors. Adaptive traffic lights, cameras, and parking meters are expected to reduce time in traffic and parking by 15%. Up to 80% of cities in the United States are expected to adopt IoT technology by the year 2025 and create almost $1.7 trillion in economic value globally.
Atonomi helps secure smart cities by enabling device manufacturers and smart city project leaders to build in blockchain-based immutable device identity and reputation tracking with the interoperability required to connect different devices and equipment types.
By 2050, it’s estimated 70 percent of the world’s population will be living in cities. These cities must be smart. And they must be secure. The Atonomi trust environment brings blockchain-based device identity and reputation tracking to help secure the future of sensitive unmanned devices and equipment.
Security is useless if it can’t fit onto your device. The Atonomi SDK is created for devices that measure their computing and storage resources in kilobytes—not megabytes or gigabytes.
Just download our Atonomi Embedded SDK, and give your device the blockchain-based security of the Atonomi trust environment.
The Atonomi trust environment is designed to work across all IoT devices, whether used for smart traffic systems, smart street lighting, smart parking, smart building, smart energy grid, smart water storage, treatment & distribution, smart waste & recycling management, environmental data reporting, smart transit, or a world of other uses. Atonomi can be deployed across all the spectrum of devices.
There are some 19,000 local governments in just the U.S. The value proposition from smart city solutions—are so attractive that small and medium-sized cities are joining large cities in deploying smart city solutions. But all smart cities—from the largest to the smallest—require security. Embedding Atonomi let’s you provide security as a market differentiator.
A key element of the Atonomi trust environment is the precision coding of our Atonomi Embedded SDK. One reason that IoT devices have historically been either unsecured or poorly secured is that by necessity IoT devices are provisioned with limited computing and storage resources. Typical security solutions simply won’t fit.
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.

Immutable root identity, especially when linked with device reputation, enables interaction between known and trusted devices. Atonomi incorporates device identity using Elliptic Curve 25519 public/private key pairs created during either the device development or manufacturing process. The Atonomi embedded SDK uses the key pairs later during device registration with the Atonomi trust environment.
Device manufacturers register device IDs, including the device’s public key, with the Atonomi trust environment. The Atonomi smart contract includes a device registration function that writes new device IDs to the blockchain. The registered device ID, along with its public key, is later used during device activation.
When the IoT device is purchased by the end user, they receive activation instructions that send them to the Atonomi web portal where they will enter the device identifier for device activation onto the Atonomi trust environment. The Atonomi Embedded SDK, integrated into the application code by the developer or OEM, guides the end user through the activation process.
Devices that have been Atonomi-enabled via the Atonomi Embedded SDK and that have successfully registered and activated on the Atonomi trust environment can begin to utilize the Atonomi Validation functionality. Devices exchange their signed device identifier with other devices with which they want to transact. This enables secure device-to-device interactions.
The Atonomi Embedded SDK provides a device Reputation Service that relays quality of service data from interactions between devices on the Atonomi trust environment. The device reputation uses an algorithm to generate a behavioral score. Interactions are tracked by reputation auditors, and analyzed using AI and machine learning to detect aberrations signaling a compromised devices.
