© 2021, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.Multi-fogcloud, which comprises the cloud system, is a centralized system in which regional fogclouds are managed by a master fogcloud. In a multi-fogcloud, authentication for a regional fogcloud requires sending of an authentication request to the master fogcloud. When regional fogcloud requires excessive authentication, the master fogcloud experiences traffic failures and delays. In this paper to resolve this problem, we suggest a multi-fogcloud authentication system based on blockchain. This system distributes excessive levels of authentication requests through the region fogcloud to resolve problems. It improves authentication speeds by consolidating distributed multi-fogclouds across the blockchain network. We verify the performance of the multi-fogcloud based on blockchain through comparison with the existing multi-fogcloud system.
