Blockchain security for Internet of Things

Bosch Connected Devices & Solutions


IT Teknik

Conventional models of data security rely on creating harder ‘walls’, adding more factors to authentication for access, using stronger encryption, longer keys etc. 

At the end of the day, they're all suffering from the same fundamental concept: once you enter the system, you can access the data. Compartmentalization is typically minimal or none.

Transport Data Logger (TDL) is a product from Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions which tracks and logs the shipment. By being attached to the shipment and measuring and recording relevant parameters like temperature, humidity, tilt, and shock, the TDL makes the delivery process of goods visible and traceable. These measurements are then documented and visualized through a mobile application.

The purpose of this master thesis is to demonstrate, how using blockchain technology ensures the data security, e.g. the sensor data held securely in the sense that it cannot be tampered. Data protection and privacy is another aspect of data security.


In this Master's Thesis, you will

1. Investigate how blockchain can prevent the sensor data and log from being tampered

2. Make changes to an existing firmware/product (TDL)

3. Demo 


The Master's Theses will be conducted at the Bosch Lund site and is suitable for two persons.
