9th Workshop on Blockchain based Secure Trust Environment Model for Internet of Things (B-STEM- IoT)

9th Workshop on Blockchain based Secure Trust Environment Model for Internet of Things (B-STEM- IoT)

Track ID: Work-07



Internet of Things (IoT) devices have offered new data gathering and processing channels, but they have also raised data privacy and security concerns. IoT data dependability has become a major issue in this setting. Blockchain technology could make the IoT safer. Participants will learn about the Secure Trust Environment Model for Internet of Things (B-STEM-IoT) at this event. The workshop will begin by discussing IoT device trust challenges and how blockchain technology may help. B-STEM-IoT uses a distributed ledger to record transactions in an immutable and auditable manner for all participants. The idea protects IoT data's privacy, security, and accessibility through consensus, smart contracts, and cryptography. Afterwards, the program will examine real-world B-STEM-IoT applications. Participants will study application scenarios in supply chain management, healthcare, energy management, and smart homes. Each group will implement a proof-of-concept B-STEM-IoT paradigm for their use case. Blockchain's use in IoT systems will conclude the program. Participants will be able to share ideas, learn from one another, and discuss ways to progress this emerging profession. Attendees will learn about the B-STEM-IoT paradigm and its possible uses, as well as actionable solutions for constructing trustworthy and secure IoT systems.



The Blockchain based Secure Trust Environment Model for Internet of Things (B-STEM- IoT) model presented in this workshop is a novel approach to creating secure and trustworthy IoT systems. The workshop will explore Blockchain Technology issues and solutions, Internet of Things security standardization, and resource-constrained applications such health care, intelligent communications, and vehicular communication. Internet of Things design, and development involve data management and security considerations. It investigates security, standards, security approach, and process for resource-constrained communication channels. This workshop invites IoT security contributions from linked devices and resource restrictions, network theoretic analysis, security design, and experimentation. To explore IoT security, cryptography, embedded security, and hardware security. This workshop's subjects include: 

  • Advanced Internet of Things (A-IoT): Perspective, Challenges and Future 

  • Blockchain based architecture, design, implementation and management of IoT. 
  • Blockchain Functional security, standards, and certification: Proof of Work, Ledger, Smart Contracts Cryptography 
  • Blockchain Security Techniques and protocols for Connected things 
  • Blockchain Security mechanism for Wireless communication in dynamic environments 



This workshop was inspired by the growing need for secure IoT systems. IoT devices have made data collection and processing easier, but security and privacy concerns have increased. Secure trust settings for IoT devices may be possible with blockchain technology. The B-STEM-IoT concept uses consensus mechanisms, smart contracts, and encryption to protect IoT data's integrity, and confidentiality.


Workshop Format

The workshop will be held online and in-person. The workshop has three sections: 

  • Blockchain technology's ability to solve IoT trust issues. 

  • Presentation and hands-on examination of B-STEM-IoT model elements such consensus processes, smart contracts, and cryptography. 
  • Group work and discussion of B-STEM-IoT use cases 


Intended Audience

This session is for researchers, practitioners, and industry experts interested in using blockchain technology to secure and trust IoT devices. Computer scientists, engineers, and allied professionals can attend the session.
