A one of a kind device, this camera gives you a glimpse of what is possible when IOT (Internet Of Things) and blockchain are fused together. Previous security measures were actually relatively insecure, and Ucam’s blockchain technology allows it to bridge this security gap, making it the first product on the market that truly offers unparalleled security while still remaining competitive with regular cameras in price. This game-changing device is priced affordably at $50.
Ucam has received the CES Innovation Award 2020 for Cybersecurity & Privacy.
Ucam achieves this through blockchain-based login, end-to-end encryption, and edge computing to ensure that users are the only ones who can access their videos and data. Ucam replaces traditional password-based login with blockchain-based login, ensuring users that they are the only ones who can access their camera and videos. As the owner, you are able to authorize who can view videos, what videos can be viewed, and how long these videos can be viewed. Your keys, your data!
Ucam uses end-to-end encryption with your private key, which is known only by you, to fully encrypt all of the videos and data collected by your Ucam. This means that these videos and data obtained by your Ucam is fully privatized and secure.
All of Ucam’s processing is performed "on the edge," meaning on your Ucam device or mobile phone. By utilizing this method of computing, the only place where your videos are ever decrypted is on the devices that you own, allowing for far more security and control of your data and videos.
IoT and blockchain are at a critical intersection. Blockchain technology is now easily adaptable and scalable to billions of devices in the IoT ecosystem. Never before has this been possible, and only recently did blockchain technology reach the level where any device can be incorporated on blockchain without a lengthy integration process and/or prohibitively expensive development costs. Thankfully, the technology is now reaching a point of plug and play simplicity.
