Securing the Internet of Things from the Bottom Up Using an Immutable Blockchain-Based Secure Forensic Trail

Authors:

Keywords: Corporate Systems; Internet of Things; Immutable Forensic Trail; Blockchain; Distributed Ledger Technology

Abstract:
It has traditionally been the case that the Internet of Things represents the weak link in the corporate information system chain. While research has tried to improve the status quo, this has, this brings a new challenge to the table. Corporate systems, while generally much stronger than Internet of Things systems, are not, in themselves, totally secure. This is especially true of cloud-based systems. This major flaw arises because of the difficulty in safeguarding the forensic trail of corporate systems. The first thing the attacker does as soon as they have penetrated a corporate system, is to delete all the evidence of their entry from the forensic records of the corporate system, and there is usually very little to prevent this from happening. This is why it is such a challenge for authorities to trace attackers and bring them to account. The forensic trail is often the least protected part of corporate systems, but is arguably the most important from a compliance point of view. We show how it is possible to secure the forensic trail for corporate systems users who adopt these secure IoT approaches, by adopting the straightforward approach we suggest here to protect the forensic trail through the use of Blockchain. This will allow corporates to ensure the overall system can be secured, but more importantly, will provide a means to fight back against the attackers.
