Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things (IoT) is widely adopted in many applications that are growing in importance in our daily lives, it is a modern technology with which various physical and virtual devices can communicate and connect over the internet, usually without human intervention. The term IoT refers to the modern proliferation of Internet-enabled devices with embedded computing capability. It is used to detect and collect various information about the physical environment around us, solve our daily problems, and make our lives easier. The IoT health monitoring system is advancing in the early detection of medical problems, emergency notifications, and other health issues. Smartphones have become indispensable to our daily lives, and they are connected to sensors to monitor our health. The IoT healthcare system provides efficient monitoring that helps improve resource management.

All IoT devices are connected to a single central server. That's why the center IoT architecture faces many challenges. These challenges stand as an obstacle to the future development of IoT devices. (For example, if the server goes down, a single point of failure can affect the service quality and availability of IoT devices.) All data generated from IoT devices is stored in one place, making it a desirable clear target for many attackers. Because it contains sensitive and personal information, the data is kept in one place on a remote server, under the full control of a third-party provider, so the protection of data privacy seems doubtful. Moving IoT to Private Blockchain technology would be the right decision.
