Consider a world in which thousands, millions or billions of smart devices are interconnected and exchange information or commands on a continuous basis:
Today, there is no secure and interoperable method in place that can be easily adapted to a variety of scenarios and uses, guaranteeing the identity and access of the various devices.
Thanks to the use of a new authentication engine, it is possible
to switch any device from an untrusted to a trusted state. Authentichain is a new authentication system developed using Blockchain Technology that guarantees:
With Authentichain, it is possible to manage a private network of smart devices that are mutually authenticated and verified. It is also possible to easily extend the network and connect it to other networks (e.g. service providers, specialised technical support, etc.) while guaranteeing the actual identity of the parties involved and the traceability of access.
Authentichain guarantees that:
every device connected to the network is authenticated and certified; the system is decentralised, therefore every device can potentially be considered an autonomous node in the network; every access attempt is verified and traced automatically and without the need for user confirmation; access-related data is stored in the public ledger available on the network and is therefore immutable and easily accessible.
We assume a system in which a significant number of smart devices coexist and are interconnected such as, for example, machines or drones that should or should not have access to various “smart” access points. Using existing authentication systems, it would be very difficult to handle these situations in heterogeneous environments, ensuring an adequate level of security.
Authentichain has made it possible to control vehicles' access to “smart” access points, using RFID identification chips. The solution allows you to:
The current solution was created using the Multichain platform (www.multichain.com) as the core implementation of the blockchain algorithm, adding the necessary features required by the use cases developed. In particular, the advantages of using the Multichain platform are attributable to:
The Authentichain architecture implies:
Property: a Blockchain accelerator manages the change of property ownership, in other words the transfer of ownership of any digital or physical asset (e.g. vehicles, equity, houses, etc.). Through the registration of a transaction in the Blockchain register, the identity of the seller and the buyer, the unique identifier of the asset and the time stamp associated with the transaction are guaranteed and cannot be modified.
Voting: in contexts that require a high level of transparency and security, such as voting in public ballots (e.g. to express a preference in a survey), the Blockchain technology relies on crypto currencies to guarantee both the legal certainty of the vote and the transparency of the process.
IoT (Internet of Things): things rely on the use of the Blockchain technology to manage the authentication and integrity of messaging between themselves, in order to guarantee the use of a safe and reliable IoT network.
Ticketing: ticketing and couponing systems are highly complex. Furthermore, the risk of distributing counterfeit tickets is a major problem even for the more advanced and modern systems. Through the use of a web platform that exploits the specific features of Blockchain technology, it’s possible to create a secure and interoperable couponing/ticketing solution that still ensures the best possible end user experience.
SDN Security: the rise of Software-Defined Networks means that there are new ways for hackers to enter a network or system. Securechain is the solution that introduces security gateway into SDN, whilst creating a forensically auditable and unchangeable log of events. Securechain is built on the Ethereum
Insurances: over the years, complexity and costs related to the management of insurance processes have undermined the profitability of companies and inhibited the distribution of innovative insurance products. A platform was developed which, by integrating with the Ethereum Blockchain, facilitates the setting and enforcement of smart contracts for travel insurance. Insurechain is a solution that facilitates the automation of premium calculations, the management of appraisals and the settlement of certain types of claims, ensuring end-user transparency.
