Secure and Robust Cryptographic Authentication Framework for PKI-based IoT Blockchain Infrastructure. (Self Funded) The aim of this project is to propose, design, develop and further implement a remote user authentication framework for an integrated Blockchain and IoT infrastructure. Project is divided into various phases: Phase-I covers detailed and discreet level of literature review and further analysis of various PKI based authentication protocols for Blockchain. Further it reviews various authentication protocols that securely integrates Blockchain with IoT infrastructure. Phase-II further perform a much narrowed and targeted study in order to normalize and identify existing authentication vulnerabilities and security issues within the reviews performed in Phase-I. Phase-III involves proposing more secure and robust authentication framework comprises of several authentication phases covering every aspect of the existing PKI-based IoT Blockchain Infrastructure. Phase-IV covers the design and development of several cryptographic authentication protocols based on the proposed authentication framework. Phase-V discusses the implementation and simulative testing of the designed and developed authentication protocols using authentication protocols validation and verification tools and authentication logics. Phase-VI discusses the Security and Performance analysis of the work along with analysing and comparing the proposed and developed work with the existing studies. This phase further utilize various multicriteria decision analysis models to logically compare the security and performance of the proposed study with the existing and previous studies. Phase-VII covers the final outcome, justification and contribution of the study within its respective domain of Cybersecurity.
