Abstract: In the last decade internet of things (IoT) technology becomes useful in almost every application fields. IoT-cloud-based architecture is insufficient to handle the requirement of IoT like latency, bandwidth, and volume of data. Fog computing can address those problems by providing processing and services to end-users at the edge network. In centralised system computation and processing was done in a centralised way. Some of the issues in that centralised system are malicious behaviour, node capture, and failure. The solution for this would be if multiple parties do the computation then the decision can be reliable, trustworthy. In this paper, authors first used IoT-fog-cloud architecture to explain the need to multi-party computation in IoT applications. Secondly, authors review existing work in term of the basic working principle of multi-party computation and already used applications area. Lastly paper described the solution approach to perform the secure multi-party computation in term of blockchain technology.

Keywords: internet of things; IoT; fog computing; cloud computing; multi-party computation; security; blockchain; distributed.
