Abstract

Blockchain and Internet of Things are considered as most disruptive technologies of the decade. Internet of Things has established its existence in several areas including manufacturing, smart home system to IT enabled Services on the other several use cases are available for blockchain mentioning its successful application in finances to supply change management, electronic health care record etc. Researchers are also trying to integrate blockchain and Internet of Things. This paper introduces the primary work carried to integrate blockchain and internet of things. To integrate blockchain and internet of things it is essential that all the participating devices work in an environment that allows them to communicate and initiate transactions thereby allowing the successful creation of block and blockchain.The major contribution of this paper includes development of a private blockchain that allows various users of system to perform their activities as per the rules or smart contracts defined while they are the part of blockchain. We have developed a private blockchain framework that utilizes a novel method to create the blocks and blockchain using SHA-256 algorithm, QR Codes and stores the information in blockchain at a particular timeframe. The proposed private blockchain framework is explained in terms of use case taken for marking attendance of students using mobile phones and teacher’s laptop which participate in the blockchain creation.
