Method and system for secure resource management utilizing blockchain and smart contracts
This disclosure relates to a resource management system of a computing network. The design of the resource management system is an edge-Internet of Things (IoT) framework based on blockchain and smart contracts. The resource management system integrates a permissioned blockchain to link the edge cloud resources with each account for an IoT device, resource usage, and behavior of the IoT device. The resource management system uses credit-based resource management to control the resource of the IoT device that can be obtained from the edge server. Smart contracts are used to regulate behavior of the IoT device and enforce policies.
