Yang, W and Aghasian, E and Garg, K and Herbert, D and Disiuta, L and Kang, B, A survey on blockchain-based internet service architecture: requirements, challenges, trends and future, IEEE Access, 7 pp. 75845-75872. ISSN 2169-3536 (2019) [Refereed Article]
The emergence of Internet protocol suites and packet-switching technologies tend to considerations of security, privacy, scalability, and reliability in layered Internet service architectures. The existing service systems allow us to access big data, but few studies focus on the fundamental security and stability in these systems, especially when they involve large-scale networks with overloaded private information. In this research, we explored the blockchain-based mechanism that aims to improve the critical features of traditional Internet services, including autonomous and decentralized processing, smart contractual enforcement of goals, and traceable trustworthiness in tamper-proof transactions. Furthermore, we provide a comprehensive review to conceptualize the blockchain-based framework to develop decentralized protocols for the extensive number of Internet services. This comprehensive survey aims to address blockchain integration to secure Internet services and identify the critical requirements of developing a decentralized trustworthy Internet service. Additionally, we present a case study of block-chain based IoT for neuroinformatics to illustrate the potential applications of blockchain architectures. Finally, we summarize the trends and challenges of blockchain architectures that benefit a multitude of disciplines across all internet service fields of interest.
