Abstract
In this article we consider tasks related to ensuring the integrity and availability of information in the Internet of Things (IoT) sphere. Such systems include sensors and similar devices, which are the sources of data, access points, which transmit data from sensors to the Internet and servers, which store received data and grant access to users. When storing data on a server and providing access to it, it is necessary to ensure its integrity and availability to users. To this end, it is proposed to apply a distributed ledger technology (DLT). One of the applications of DLT for data protection is energetics. Here we consider a system for processing and storing data on the production and consumption of electricity in a decentralized power grid. A review of currently existing projects related to the use of distributed ledger technologies in the energy sector is carried out. An important obstacle to the use of DLT in the IoT is the contradiction between, on the one hand, high memory computational requirements of the DLT, and, on the other hand, limited resources of IoT nodes. Further research directions are proposed that are associated with overcoming this obstacle in applying distributed ledger technologies in the energetics.
