Smart IOT Contracts for Your Supply Chain

Skuchain has been working with a number of organizations to build a framework for how the blockchain can be used as a layer of trust to secure sensor signals and make them actionable.

The framework supports the billions of sensors in the wild, as well as many of the leading Hardware Security Modules (HSM’s) and the newer sensors that contain self-signing secure elements.

We are leading an active development effort to build out a Smart IOT Contract toolset that allows you to design, author and deploy primitives for a supply chain that effectively processes real-time, actionable signals in a secure and trusted manner.

If you’d like to learn more about how you and your company can join in this effort, please fill out the form.

In May 2017, a group of five enterprises and six startups gathered to advance the blockchain and Internet of Things ecosystem. Members of the group included Cisco, Foxconn, Gemalto, Bosch, Skuchain, Chronicled and Slock it.

Together, we launched an IoT “thing” registration API supporting Ethereum, Quorum, and Hyperledger blockchain implementations.

The protocol allows users to register multiple kinds of weaker identities, including serial numbers, QR codes, and UPC code identities, and bind them to stronger cryptographic identities, which are immutably linked across both physical and digital worlds using blockchain technology.

Blockchain technology is driving a broader trend towards securing digital identities of people, organizations, and physical objects. Machines capable of cryptographically-secured transactions can prevent hacking, data breaches, and more of the problems that plague digital economies today.

The common registration protocol brings industry and commerce legacy systems one step closer to secure interactions with cryptographic networks. This will fundamentally change the approaches to computing that underpin today’s IoT device identities, sensor data, and business logic.

Skuchain is proud to contribute to the work of The Value Chain Innovation Initiative at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. This Initiative brings together faculty, staff, students, and practitioners to advance the theory and practice of global value chain innovation through research and knowledge dissemination.

The Value Chain Innovation Initiative seeks to understand the economic and social impacts of the global dynamics and digital communications that are reshaping business, industries, and ecosystems. Its research focuses on solving problems that are highly relevant to the greater global business community.

We are proud to contribute to the work of the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF), the only organisation that brings consumer goods retailers and manufacturers together globally to help the world’s retailers and consumer goods manufacturers to collaborate, alongside other key stakeholders, to secure consumer trust and drive positive change, including greater efficiency.

CGF and Skuchain both believe that the establishment of standards will be crucial to the successful adoption of blockchain across the global food value chain. With the success of CGF’s Smart Label initiative, Skuchain looks forward to helping CPG companies implement the next generation of tools for transparency, sustainability and efficiency in the supply chain.

We are proud to contribute to the work of the Supply Chain Risk Leadership Council to create best-practices supply chain risk management standards, processes, capabilities and metrics to be adopted within its members’ respective organizations.

With its global reach, CEO leadership and focus on retailer-manufacturer collaboration, CGF is in a unique position to drive positive change and efficiency across the consumer goods industry and around the world.

Using blockchain, these enterprises can then leverage this best practices effort to proactively initiate consistency across industries and their related organizations / councils. Ultimately, our joint goal is to enable standardizations across industries and become “industry integrators” for the betterment of a more efficient and consistent risk management environment.
