IoT Agent Gateways: Using the IOTA Tangle for Secure Data Transfer
#WednesdayWebinars: IoT Agent Gateways – Using the IOTA Tangle for Secure Data Transfer
Presenter: Jason Fox (Senior Technical Evangelist @ FIWARE)
A software engineer with over twenty years of experience, Jason Fox is the Senior Technical Evangelist at the FIWARE Foundation where he is involved in the Development of FIWARE technologies and technical coaching, assessment and training as well as assessment of FIWARE-ready technologies.
Audience: Any Technical
Within the FIWARE Ecosystem, IoT Agents are used to ensure that devices can send their data to, and be managed from a Context Broker using their own native protocols. There is no restrictions on the transport layer to be used for these communications, it could be anything from HTTP to MQTT to OPC-UA to LoRaWAN and more.
For example, IOTA is an open-source data communication protocol and zero-fee microtransaction system utilizing distributed ledger technology. This allows participants in the IOTA network (“the Tangle”) to securely and immutably encrypt, transfer and store data.
The aim of this webinar is to demonstrate how create a gateway component for an IoT Agent and how connect to devices securely using the IOTA Tangle, using it as a single source of truth and trust in data. Additionally discussing how to pick the most appropriate transport for your use case and avoiding anti-patterns when securing IoT data.
