Research Insight: How blockchain can make the Internet of Things secure

I’ve recently blogged about IoT and blockchain, so I was most interested to come across this conference paper which explains how the latter can be applied to the former.  Fremantle et al (2017) identify that IoT has a number of flaws that make it susceptible to cyber attacks and disruption.  They go on to explain blockchain and how this can be used to address most, if not all, of the issues associated with IoT.
