Securing distributed and collaborative business processes that involve Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) devices or services in a cross-organizational context is a challenging task. It becomes even more difficult when the involved parties do not trust each other completely. This keynote presents some real-world industrial use cases where there is a need to enforce cross-organizational business processes without a trusted third party and how state-of-the-art technologies and research addresses the problem.
