Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • Blockchain-IOT Based Secure Data Sharing for Precision Agriculture with Optimal Clustering and Hybrid Encryption Algorithm   Order a copy of this article
    by T.Senthil Murugan  
    Abstract: Precision agriculture is a farming management technique that uses technology such as Internet of Things (IoT), remote sensing, and information technology to improve crop yields and efficiency. To effectively utilise the resources in precision agriculture, a new novel deterministic Blockchain-IoT based secure data sharing model is introduced. The system would use optimal clustering and a hybrid encryption algorithm to ensure the privacy and security of the data being shared. The new optimisation algorithm referred as SSA-RFO, which combines the concepts of Salp swarm algorithm (SSA) and red fox optimisation algorithm (RFO) is utilised for optimal cluster head selection. Moreover, hybrid encryption algorithm would use a combination of symmetric and asymmetric encryption to protect the data from unauthorised access. The proposed model has been validated over the existing works in terms of accuracy, specificity, sensitivity, precision as well.
    Keywords: Precision agriculture; Red Fox Optimization Algorithm (RFO); Data Encryption Standard (DES).
