Abstract
With the development of information technology, the Internet of Things (IoT) has gradually become the third wave of the worldwide information industry revolution after the computer and the Internet. The application of the IoT has brought great convenience to people’s production and life. However, the potential information security problems in various IoT applications are gradually exposed and people pay more attention to them. The traditional centralized data storage and management model of the IoT is easy to cause transmission delay, single point of failure, privacy disclosure and other problems, and eventually leads to unpredictable behavior of the system. Blockchain technology can effectively improve the operation and data security status of the IoT. Referring to the storage model of the Fabric blockchain project, this paper designs a data security storage model suitable for the IoT system. The simulation results show that the model is not only effective and extensible, but also can better protect the data security of the Internet of Things.
