This paper explores blockchain technology's role in bolstering access control security within IoT devices and systems. It demonstrates the security benefits of applying blockchain in IoT systems for access control, comparing it with the current approach. The potential advantages and challenges of using blockchain for access control and database management in IoT networks and devices are thoroughly reviewed. Additionally, we employ a secure database management system to store and manage access control policies. This ensures the integrity and confidentiality of IoT data, emphasizing a robust foundation for safeguarding sensitive information within IoT environments.
