Autonomous connected lights, smart thermostats, weather sensing sprinklers, video doorbells, smart speakers with digitalized voice assistants, self-diagnosing and over-the-air appliance repairs are just some of the use cases expected to drive up to $350 billion in economic value in 2025, according to McKinsey Global Institute. By that same year, Berg Insight forecasts that more than half the households in the U.S. will qualify as smart homes.
With billions of IoT devices being deployed into smart homes, hackers and other bad actors have taken notice. Smart homes represent a huge and varied attack surface to target, and one weak link could enable an intruder from across the globe to enter your personal checking account, your home surveillance system, or your child’s talking teddy bear.
Atonomi helps secure smart homes IoT by enabling device manufacturers to build in blockchain-based immutable device identity and reputation tracking.
Atonomi records and validates trusted device identity and device reputation monitoring on the blockchain to help create a more secure environment for your smart home.
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 smart home device the blockchain-based security of the Atonomi trust environment.
The Atonomi trust environment is designed to work across all types of smart home IoT devices to help ensure trust and security.
With the market for smart home devices expected to reach up to $350 billion 2025, this will be a high-value area for vendors, and the ability to offer security should prove an effective market differentiator. IoT security is already a top concern, and can be expected to only increase in decision making importance. Atonomi gives manufacturers the ability to provide marketplace differentiation by building security into all of their smart home IoT devices.
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.
