Critical Controlling for the Network Security and Privacy Based on Blockchain Technology: A Fuzzy DEMATEL Approach
Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI)
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been considered in various fields in the last decade. With the increasing number of IoT devices in the community, secure, accessible, and reliable infrastructure for processing and storing computed data has become necessary. Since traditional security protocols are unsuitable for IoT devices, IoT implementation is fraught with privacy and security challenges. Thus, blockchain technology has become an effective solution to the problems of IoT security. Blockchain is an empirical data distribution and storage model involving point-to-point transmission, consensus mechanism, asymmetric encryption, smart contract, and other computer technologies. Security and privacy are becoming increasingly important in using the IoT. Therefore, this study provides a comprehensive framework for classifying security criteria based on blockchain technology. Another goal of the present study is to identify causal relationship factors for the security issue using the Fuzzy Decision-Making Trial-and-Evaluation Laboratory (FDEMATEL) approach. In order to deal with uncertainty in human judgment, fuzzy logic is considered an effective tool. The present study’s results show the proposed approach’s efficiency. Authentication (CR6), intrusion detection (CR4), and availability (CR5) were also introduced as the most effective and essential criteria, respectively. © 2023 by the authors.
