It's irrelevant, you don't need a seed to publish a MAM message since you don't sign the transaction: Example: https://github.com/iota-community/javascript-iota-workshop/blob/master/code/7.1-mam-public-send.js If your library for some reason requires a seed just make one up, you can just publish to any address without the seed belonging to it. The seed is ...

IOTA is what we call 'quantum robust' because of the signature scheme that it uses. You can find detailed information about signatures on our documentation portal.

Umair's answer is the correct one, but I just wanted to add that it's free to send only data in a transaction. We call this a zero-value transaction. Once a transaction is on the Tangle, anyone can read it as long as it isn't encrypted, for example using a restricted or private channel in Masked Authenticated Messaging. We recently updated the documentation ...

You can use official client libraries for sending transactions to the tangle. Here is an example of sending data to the tangle. An example of reading transactions from the tangle can be found here.

First of all, the IoT is the absolute dream come true for eavesdropping and a complete loss of a person's privacy and anonymity. Fine dining anyone? An open ecosystem which IOTA offers makes it a lot harder to pull something like this off, if only it's a big improvement over proprietary closed source IoT where things can be hidden. All IOTA software is ...

if I may ask, what makes elliptic-curve cryptography more secure than IOTA's approach? The seed is as safe as your other private keys and are affected by your threat model. Please refer to the manufacturer for hardware specific concerns. e.g.: https://support.ledger.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005321449-Check-hardware-integrity https://www.ledger.com/...

According to the document: In contrast to any data stored in the Tangle, the communication layer, therefore, does not necessarily require the use of post-quantum cryptography right now, but it can be swapped when quantum attacks become more imminent in the future. In case of quantum computer attacks become feasible, a dishonest node ...
