This paper addresses a secure caching scheme for information-centric network (ICN)-based wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In order to achieve the above mechanism, we utilize both the public-key cryptography technique and the blockchain technique, which enable data to be safely gathered and the decentralized and crossverified sensing data to be copied and stored. In addition, we propose a protocol design for introducing the proposed structure into an ICN-based WSN system. Furthermore, we formulate statistical models and demonstrate numerical results by performing computer simulations and hardware-based experiments.
