Atonomi Launches Identity Registry Network Beta to Enable Secure Interoperability for the Internet of Things
SEATTLE, May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- Atonomi Network now available for developers to bring trust and identity to 
the IoT

Atonomi ( ), the blockchain-based arm of leading IoT 
security provider CENTRI Technology, has announced the official beta launch of 
the Atonomi Network. Once fully tested and deployed, the Atonomi Network is 
intended to be the first blockchain-enabled security protocol to provide device 
registration, activation, validation, and reputation to secure the rapidly 
growing Internet of Things (IoT). A key innovation of the Atonomi Network is to 
root the identity and reputation of devices on the blockchain, enabling trusted 
interoperability between billions of connected devices. Securing the IoT is 
mission-critical for numerous sectors including smart cities, healthcare, 
manufacturing and home automation.

The Atonomi Network beta launch includes a software development kit (SDK) 
available on GitHub, which developers can use to embed the Atonomi Network 
security protocol into IoT devices; a QuickStart Guide to help developers 
understand how to implement the technology and the process for registering a 
device with the network; and smart contracts, which will tie the Atonomi 
Network to the Ethereum blockchain.

Atonomi CEO Vaughan Emery said: "The billions of IoT devices that have already 
been deployed represent a vast attack surface for hackers and other bad actors 
to target. Future projections show ever greater numbers of these devices, 
tightly woven into the infrastructure of our daily lives. We believe Atonomi's 
root-of-trust device identity and reputation tracking are essential to securing 
device interoperability required for the world to enjoy the full potential of 
the IoT."

The Atonomi Network brings blockchain-based secure identity and reputation to 
developers and manufacturers, giving them the ability to secure and validate 
IoT devices across their real-world applications. The Atonomi Network should 
benefit the industrial IoT by enabling manufacturers to securely deploy 
sensors, controllers, and other IoT devices. It aims to promote the growth of 
smart cities by enabling municipalities to safely and securely link IoT devices 
such as smart street lights and traffic sensors; and help healthcare 
organizations protect devices within clinics, as well as devices sent home with 
patients, including insulin pumps and heart monitors.
