Abstract: This study includes blockchain technology that handles each mobile database like one block. First, every block detects its data range. The system then links sensor information for every block to blockchain technology. Every block node stores the sensor data for the entire wireless network after the connection of each block is completed. The module also simultaneously supplies a web server. The internet of things (IoT) topology is used to build up this mobile web server. A blockchain is a concatenated transaction record that is cryptographically protected. To preserve the integrity of wireless sensor networks, they need protection against multiple security infractions. Each block of the suggested technique includes the encrypted risk value of the previous block, the current timestamp, and wireless network sensing data. The proposed system, therefore, collects and analyses sensor data to optimise the setup of the wireless sensing network.

Keywords: wireless sensor network; blockchain; security; data privacy.
