3-of-3 Multisignature Approach for Enabling Lightning Network Micro-payments on IoT Devices

  title={3-of-3 Multisignature Approach for Enabling Lightning Network Micro-payments on IoT Devices},
  author={Ahmet Kurt and Suat Mercan and Enes Erdin and Kemal Akkaya},
Bitcoin’s success as a cryptocurrency enabled it to penetrate into many daily life transactions. Its problems regarding the transaction fees and long validation times are addressed through an innovative concept called the Lightning Network (LN) which works on top of Bitcoin by leveraging off-chain transactions. This made Bitcoin an attractive micropayment solution that can also be used within certain IoT applications (e.g., toll payments) since it eliminates the need for traditional centralized…

A Survey on Ransomware: Evolution, Taxonomy, and Defense Solutions

A comprehensive survey on ransomware and ransomware defense research with respect to PCs/workstations, mobile devices, and IoT/CPS platforms over the period of 1990-2020 is presented, giving a detailed overview of ransomware evolution and comprehensively analyze the key building blocks of ransomware.



Enabling Micro-payments on IoT Devices using Bitcoin Lightning Network

This paper proposes an efficient and secure protocol that enables an IoT device to use LN’s functions through a gateway LN node to involve the IoT device in LN operations with its digital signature by replacing original 2-of-2 multisignature channels with 3- of-3 multisIGNature channels.

A Ticket-Based Verification Protocol is proposed, which defines two separate logical entities, contract manager and transaction verifier, which limits the need for high-performance embedded systems to only one unit per administrative domain and reduces the processing and networking overhead other IoT devices in that domain.

Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System

This work proposes a solution to the double-spending problem using a peer-to-peer network, where the network timestamps transactions by hashing them into an ongoing chain of hash-based proof-of-work, forming a record that cannot be changed without redoing the proof- of-work.

LNBot: A Covert Hybrid Botnet on Bitcoin Lightning Network

A new generation hybrid botnet that covertly and efficiently communicates over Bitcoin Lightning Network (LN), called LNBot, which achieves better scalibility compared to the other similar blockchain botnets with negligible costs.

P4UIoT: Pay-Per-Piece Patch Update Delivery for IoT Using Gradual Release

P4UIoT—pay-per-piece patch update delivery for IoT using gradual release—introduces a distributed framework for delivering patch updates to IoT devices that can scale better without any overhead and with reduced costs.

The internet of things: a survey
