TNABC Miami 2018: Securing the Internet of Things with David Fragale of Atonomi

TNABC Miami 2018: Securing the Internet of Things with David Fragale of Atonomi

There’s a joke in the computer world that goes “The ‘s’ in IoT stands for security”. The “Internet of Things” age may grab plenty of tech media attention, but too few bother to think about how to keep it all secure and trustworthy. Atonomi Product VP David Fragale spoke with Bitsonline at the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami about how Ethereum and blockchain tech can bring all the different systems together.

Atonomi: A Blockchain-Based IoT Security Protocol

One big problem with IoT security is the sheer number of devices and protocols out there, many by competing manufacturers. Rather than uniting the “things”, these competitors have produced “silos and disparities of data” that can make securing the network a challenge… or a nightmare.

Atonomi wants to develop a unifying protocol to get all these devices talking to (and trusting) each other. But at the same time, they want it decentralized rather than under the control of a central authority. Fragale, who’s spent time in blockchain forensics and transaction tracking, explains how it’s supposed to work.

Growth of the North American Bitcoin Conference

North American Bitcoin Conference TNABC logoThe North American Bitcoin Conference (TNABC) is regarded as the original major Bitcoin event in the USA, and possibly the world. Held annually in Miami every January since 2013, it staked that city’s claim as Bitcoin’s fun and business capital — growing from a few hundred bitcoin enthusiasts into a gathering of thousands, including several high-profile industry leaders. It’s a must-attend event on the blockchain calendar.

Produced by Dr. Moe Levin’s Keynote Events team, it now covers all disruptive blockchain technology issues — including smart contracts, ICOs, fintech, regulation and investment. TNABC also has international sister events, such as World Blockchain Forum in London.
