Abstract: Internet of things ( IoT) can provide the function of product traceability for industrial systems. Emerging blockchain technology can solve the problem that the current industrial Internet of things ( IIoT) system lacks unified product data sharing services. Blockchain technology based on the directed acyclic graph (DAG) structure is more suitable for high concurrency environments. But due to its distributed architecture foundation, direct storage of product data will cause authentication problems in data management. In response, IIoT based on DAG blockchain is proposed in this paper, which can provide efficient data management for product data stored on DAG blockchain, and an authentication scheme suitable for this structure is given. The security of the scheme is based on a discrete-logarithm-based assumption put forth by Lysyanskaya, Rivest, Sahai and Wolf(LRSW) who also show that it holds for generic groups. The sequential aggregation signature scheme is more secure and efficient, and the new scheme is safe in theory and it is more efficient in engineering.

Key words: industrial Internet of things (IIoT), blockchain, directed acyclic graph (DAG), aggregation signature
