PRO TALK: Inverting the Client Server Paradigm with Blockchain-Secured Edge IoT Gateways

Currently the mindset of the IoT world is that devices are clients to a powerful central server. This is not going to work going forward with billions of potentially insecure devices with our personal information communicating over long distances to servers in the cloud. Hopefully the general public will wake up and demand that they own their data, and will be provided with unbrickable future-proofed IoT products. If that happens the end-user will need to be protected with end-to-end encryption, in-house security products to protect the “lesser” devices and will need the ability to source services from independent providers for their needs (security, storage, etc). This will make the service providers in the cloud clients of our devices on the IoT Edge. The whole client-server paradigm will be inverted, central cloud clients communicating with IoT Edge servers. The inversion quickening has already begun! The unbrickable, free open and modular hardware platform, the Subutai Blockchain Router v2.0 went into production in April of 2018 to specifically lead the inversion. It is the Swiss Army Knife of IoT Gateways. The router has an Arduino Shield header, a Raspberry Pi Hat, and 4-PMOD connectors to interoperate with shields offered for these ecosystems. Thousands of sensors, actuators, controllers, and peripheral buses interoperate with the Subutai Blockchain Router. The router is acts both as an IoT Gateway and a hardware accelerated cloud router. It’s essentially a Subutai appliance with custom circuitry inside programmable logic that also supports an advanced hardware security framework for industrial IoT. The device’s FPGA can also contain a soft core for the Ethereum Virtual Machine to rapidly execute EVM instructions. It is designed to integrate itself and the devices it connects on the edge securely into the blockchain. In this session we will introduce users to the Subutai Blockchain Router and how to create IoT-enabled edge using the Subutai Platform.
