Internet of Things (IOT) is growing by leaps & bounds, many companies are hard at work, building out IOT infrastructure, developing methods of communication between the billions of IOT devices, creating innovative solutions for smart homes, smart vehicles, autonomous drones, etc. Nillion is poised to play a major role in IOT development. My idea is to develop a wide range of IOT locking devices, integrating NMC tech. Allow me present ‘LockPass’, a Nillion enabled solution for potentially millions of IOT locking devices heading our way. You can think of LockPass as being the ‘LastPass’ for physical locks.
Imagine you are at your front door, you have your RFID card ready, you scan your card & the door unlocks, or you may prefer to enter a 4-digit pin to unlock. Simple right? But what if I told you that you could have the same pin for all your locks, i.e. – home, vehicle, door at the office, padlock, you name it, could be any IOT lock. Imagine a future where you only need one key? All powered by Nillion’s NMC Network.
LockPass will provide customizable locking solutions, imbued with ITS, the ultimate data protection, while at the same time offer simplicity of use. Simply open your LockPass app on your phone (or other device), where you will have the option to add a device & set your pin for the device. The LockPass app is dealer node which interacts with the Nillion Network, so all your data entered is protected by Information Theoretic Security (ITS). You would have options to set devices to unlock with Pin Codes, RFID tags (identifier added via the app), or even Biometric scan. Scalability will not be an issue, being that LockPass is integrated into the Nillion Network.
Programmable physical locking devices, offering ITS level security would have many use cases: homes, cars, large organizations with many employees (locks could be programmed with varying levels of access), hotels, school lockers, padlocks, etc. This is an untapped market in which the breakthrough technology of NMC could potentially have a huge impact. There is a market for business, retail, corporations, governments, etc. I envision opportunities for collaboration & partnerships with business & industry as well as potential ‘fee for service’ models.
In summary, IOT ecosystems will create many interesting use cases. LockPass is one such case. The ITS secured / IOT enabled locks, coupled with the easy-to-use app, has enormous potential, due to the convenience & security provided to the user.
