In order to establish a secure and decentralized method for verifying physical Machine data within a Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network (DePIN), peaq works on a multi-tiered approach. The following elaborates on each tier, providing an overview for each step in the verification process.
This page delineates a procedure to affirm the integrity and origin of machine-generated data within a blockchain network, emphasizing "Machine-Origin Authentication" as Tier 1 verification in a Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Network (DePIN).
Tier 2 verification strengthens the data integrity framework by validating data through pattern matching. It is designed for scenarios where data does not originate directly from the device but is still crucial for the network's operations.
Tier 3 verification introduces an extra layer of validation by employing oracles. This is particularly useful for data that requires external corroboration or originates from less secure or indirect sources.
