In the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem the volume of data generated by devices in the user’s environment is constantly increasing and becoming of particular value. In such an environment the average user is bound to face considerable difficulties in understanding the size and scope of his/her collected data. However, the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) require data subjects to be able to control their personal data, be informed and consent to its…

A Blockchain-Based Platform for Consent Management of Personal Data Processing in the IoT Ecosystem
TLDR
The paper provides a prototype implementation of the proposed ADVOCATE platform, a user-centric solution that allows data subjects to easily manage consents regarding access to their personal data in the IoT ecosystem and assists data controllers to meet GDPR requirements.
A Dynamic Intelligent Policies Analysis Mechanism for Personal Data Processing in the IoT Ecosystem
TLDR
The Intelligent Policies Analysis Mechanism (IPAM) of the ADVOCATE framework is proposed, which, in an intelligent and fully automated manner, can identify conflicting rules or consents of the user, which may lead to the collection of personal data that can be used for profiling.
Developing GDPR Compliant User Data Policies for Internet of Things
TLDR
It is described how Blockchain technology can be used to develop an audit trail of data generated in IoT devices, enabling GDPR rules to be verified on such a trail, and how to translate a set of such rules into smart contracts to protect personal data in a transparent and automatic way.
GDPR Compliance Verification in Internet of Things
TLDR
Three smart contracts are proposed as a practical solution to support automated verification of operations carried out by devices on user data, in accordance with GDPR rules, and the performance and scalability costs are evaluated using a Blockchain test network.
OConsent - Open Consent Protocol for Privacy and Consent Management with Blockchain
TLDR
A protocol and a platform based on Blockchain Technology that enables the transparent processing of personal data throughout its lifecycle from capture, lineage to redaction and how different access control policies might be created and enforced through a public blockchain including real time alerts for privacy data breach.
A Review of Distributed Access Control for Blockchain Systems Towards Securing the Internet of Things
TLDR
The details and applicability of centralized and distributed access control schemes to blockchain systems under the IoT ecosystems are introduced and discussed and challenges and research directions related to the application of all those presented blockchain systems to IoT are discussed.
Gateway Supported Security Enhancement in the Internet of Things(IoT)
TLDR
A robust digital signature an encryption mechanism is proposed for the purposes of authentication and secure management of privacy preferences and the blockchain network is adopted as the underlying architecture of data processing and maintenance to resolve privacy disputes.
Securing the Rights of Data Subjects with Blockchain Technology
TLDR
A technical solution to this problem is presented by installing a blockchain-based application to submit and track requests for data access securely whilst preserving data protection for the subjects to be able to file complaints and ultimately ensure the given data protection rights.
Dwarna: a blockchain solution for dynamic consent in biobanking
TLDR
Dwarna is a web portal for ‘dynamic consent’ that acts as a hub connecting the different stakeholders of the Malta Biobank: biobank managers, researchers, research partners, and the general public, to create an immutable audit trail of research partners’ consent changes.
Intelligent Mediator-based Enhanced Smart Contract for Privacy Protection
TLDR
An intelligent mediator-based enhanced smart contract for privacy protection is proposed, which performs the tasks, which are mediation transactions, authorization, and transaction record management, with blockchain-based personal information management.

Blockchain for the Internet of Things: A systematic literature review
TLDR
A Systematic Literature Review on the blockchain is conducted to gather knowledge on the current uses of this technology and to document its current degree of integrity, anonymity and adaptability, and to found 18 use cases of blockchain in the literature.
Privacy-aware and blockchain connected gateways for users to access legacy IoT devices
TLDR
This study proposes the Blockchain Connected Gateways (BC Gateways) to protect users from providing personal data to IoT devices without user consent and store user privacy preferences on IoT devices in the blockchain network.
Towards a reference ontology for security in the Internet of Things
TLDR
A reference ontology (IoTSec) with security concepts of M2M communications to help find secure solutions to the IoT environment is proposed and a case study about the applicability of IoTSec in the industrial scenario is described.
Security, privacy and trust in Internet of Things: The road ahead
IoT Security: Ongoing Challenges and Research Opportunities
TLDR
This paper begins with general information security background of IoT and continues on with information security related challenges that IoT will encountered and points out research directions that could be the future work for the solutions to the security challenges that Internet of Things encounters.
Network Security Situation Awareness Based on Semantic Ontology and User-Defined Rules for Internet of Things
TLDR
Four key sub-domains are proposed to reflect an IoT security situation: context, attack, vulnerability, and network flow, and user-defined rules can compensate for the limited description ability of ontology, and hence can enhance the reasoning ability of the proposed ontology model.
