NKN Smart Cities Video Released

NKN Smart Cities video published on January 31st, highlights how NKN can be the secure and reliable network for IoT data. With NKN’s network protocol software and signature chain integrated within IoT and network devices, Smart Cities can securely track and validate the transmission of their IoT data.

In addition, NKN’s unique architecture uses random NKN addresses making it difficult for attacks on any one particular node as well as dynamic routing which distributes data across multiple paths making it difficult for attackers to collect all data. The network also offers embedded security protection using a signature chain, a collection of signatures based on public and private keys of every node in the relay path used to track and verify the transmission of IoT data, Finally, NKN has the ability to deploy smart contracts giving City managers the ability to authorize access to IoT devices in order manage devices and data.
