Abstract

Nowadays, the integration of Cloud Computing and the Internet of Things (Cloud-IoT) has drawn attention as new technologies in the Future Internet. Cloud-IoT accommodates good solutions to address real-world problems by offering new services in real-life scenarios. Nonetheless, the traditional Cloud-IoT will be probably not going to give suitable service to the user as it handles enormous amounts of data at a single server. Furthermore, the Cloud-IoT shows huge security and privacy problems that must be solved. To address these issues, we propose an integrated Fog Cloud-IoT architecture based on Multi-Agents System and Blockchain technology. Multi-Agents System has proven itself in decision-making aspects, distributed execution, and its effectiveness in acting in the event of an intrusion without user intervention. On the other side, we propose Blockchain technology as a distributed, public, authentic ledger to record the transactions. The Blockchain represents a great advantage to the next generation computing to ensures data integrity and to allows low latency access to large amounts of data securely. We evaluated the performance of our proposed architecture and compared it with the existing models. The result of our evaluation shows that performance is improved by reducing the response time.
