The Internet of Things (IoT) is experiencing an exponential growth in a wide variety of use-cases in multiple application domains, such as healthcare, agriculture, smart cities, smart homes, supply chain, and so on. To harness its full potential, it must be based upon a resilient network architecture with strong support for security, privacy, and trust. Most of these issues still remain to be addressed carefully for the IoT systems. Blockchain technology has recently emerged as a breakthrough technology with the potential to deliver some valuable properties such as resiliency, support for integrity, anonymity, decentralization, and autonomous control. A number of blockchain platforms are proposed that may be suitable for different use-cases including IoT applications. In such, the possibility to integrate the IoT and blockchain technology is seen as a potential solution to address some crucial issues. However, to achieve this, there must be a clear understanding of the requirements of different IoT applications and the suitability of a blockchain platform for a particular application satisfying its underlying requirements. This chapter aims to achieve this goal by describing an evaluation framework which can be utilized to select a suitable blockchain platform for a given IoT application.

The popularity of smart cars is increasing around the world as they offer a wide range of services and conveniences.These smart cars are equipped with a variety of sensors generating a large amount of data, many of which are sensitive. Besides, there are multiple parties involved in a lifespan of a smart car ,such as manufacturers, car owners, government agencies, and third-party service providers who also produce data about the vehicle. In addition to managing and sharing data amongst these entities in a secure and privacy-friendly way which is a great challenge itself, there exists a trust deficit about some types of data as they remain under the custody of the car owner(e.g. satellite navigation and mileage data) and can easily be manipulated. In this paper, we propose a blockchain supported architecture enabling the owner of a smart car to create an immutable record of every data, called the auto biography of a car, generated within its lifespan. We also explain how the trust about this record is guaranteed by the immutability characteristic of the blockchain. Furthermore, the paper describes how the proposed architecture enables a secure and privacy-friendly sharing of smart car data between different parties in a secure yet privacy-friendly manner.

This is an extended abstract to be presented at the 2nd Symposium on Distributed Ledger Technology - SDLT'2018 at Griffith University. In this research, we have briefly explored the feasibility of three major public blockchain systems suitable for IoT use-cases against a set of chosen criteria.
