The launching and linking process of heterogeneous objects to the Internet of Things (IoT) is related to some important problems of the identification, authentication for ensuring safety over the wireless connections. The possibilities of connections to the IoT differ in a broad spectrum of different equipment, the functionality of objects, communication protocols, etc. This research study is related to the implementation of safeguard algorithms on the first stages of object identification and authentication before the permission stage for launching into the working area of the IoT. The application domain is related to the requirements for the safety of the multilayered infrastructure of objects by linking to the whole IoT. Such infrastructure became more complex according to the risks of very unsafe possibilities. The aim of this research is to evaluate some safety means related to the identification and authentication stages of objects by integrating them with the functionality of blockchain. The objectives of this research are related to the development of more safety working algorithms by representing the stages of checking of the identity of objects. The results demonstrated integration possibilities of implementing the blockchain functionality for establishing and managing the operational rules for pre-connection stages of objects to the IoT. The paper shows new results of developing protection means for ensuring reliable communication in the transmission of outgoing confidential data and transmission data integrity from different smart objects. As a result, components of necessary functional capabilities of the communication of IoT are developed by intending to ensure the safety and reliability of the wireless connection of objects.
