IoT sensor readings are ingested by an edge platform in many different protocol formats. Using EdgeX Foundry (an open source edge platform) this disparity can be normalized into a common representation. Even so, this data may not be secure or tracked until it gets to the enterprise. Can you securely store and track IoT sensor data at the limited-compute-resource edge with distributed ledger? Yes! In this session, come learn how to secure and track data entering the IoT edge using distributed ledger technology. Specifically, see how data brought into the EdgeX Foundry can be signed and stored on an IPFS distributed file system and then an immutable pointer to the data can be placed into a distributed ledger along with any necessary identity/wallet information. This solution helps minimize storage needs of the ledger, provides an extra layer of security to your IoT solutions and can pave the way for eventual data monetization via querying/reporting capabilities
