Abstract
The Internet of Things (IoT) is considered to have a great potential to impact on everyday life through its connectivity. However, applications for the IoT would be limited without sufficient security guarantees, and security measures for the traditional Internet may not properly address issues regarding the IoT. In this paper, we propose a secure network architecture with key distribution mechanisms using local authorization entities and three groups of entities according to their connectivity with respect to the authorization entity. Our proposed architecture provides security guarantees while addressing IoT-specific issues including resource constraints and heterogeneity of devices. Through security analysis and comparison with previous approaches, we show our proposed approach has advantages for the IoT while providing a comparable level of security as other approaches.
