Receiving code distributed by a base station at a target device via a network, via one or more distribution servers arranged between the base station and one or more devices on the network. The base station maintains a first blockchain having a state determined by a most recently committed block in the first blockchain. The target device receives the code, a defined list of devices connected to the network, and the hash value for the code and the defined list of devices via the one or more distribution servers. It also receives a broadcast communication including a current state of the first blockchain for receipt by target device, the validity of the hash value evaluated for the preceding state of the first blockchain is based on access to a second blockchain. The second blockchain is validated by blockchain miners at the destination devices so as to confirm the validity of blocks in the second blockchain and in response to the verification that the target device is included in the list of network connected devices, executing the code at the target device.
