The main purpose of the issue is to integrate [Remme protocol](https://github.com/Remmeauth/remme-core) to the smart home industry. These intentions could improve cybersecurity layer of `Internet of things` as well as provide more powerful and diverse functionality at the expense of native integration with other `Remme` solutions.
As an owner of the smart home, you want to open an entrance door with one button on your key fob or application on mobile device. Before you are able to use this feature, you should create an account using a special software product. Then register your door and key fob to make authorization between these entities possible.
After you press the open door button on key fob, a door checks if a key fob relates to the same account, then if an account is not blocked, then all validations are passed, you expect the door is opened.
Actually, you could extend the solution to communication between any types of devices:
- garage door,
- digital cameras,
- healthcare devices, etc.
# Guide-level explanation
You open special software to:
- register an account on the blockchain,
- create private and public key for your door,
- create private and public key for your key fob,
- store both public keys as related to the account on the blockchain.
When key fob sends the request to open a door, it sends:
- account key fob relates to,
- public key,
- signature of the data (i.e. account address) to proof the ownership of private key.
When the door receives a request, it checks:
- an account key fob relates to, door relates too (through public keys of the door and key fob),
- door's public key is not revoked,
- key fob public key is not revoked,
- key fob signature.
# Technical notes
We understand there are no a lot of engineers which are too familiar with `IoT`, a lot of cool software engineers haven't experience with physical devices. So there is a brief overview of possible solutions to participate in the challenge:
- use your mobile devices as a key fob — create an application if you a mobile developer,
- develop `website as door`, the site that will show the status (opened/closed) of the door.
# How to turn in your stuff
If you want to participate in the challenge, leave the comment below, please. Do not hesitate to ask questions and or request more details about the issue.
