Abstract
The challenges posed by the Internet of Things (IoT) render existing security measures ineffective against the emerging IoT. These challenges include heterogeneity, operation in open environments, and scalability. In this paper, we propose SST (Secure Swarm Toolkit), an open-source toolkit for construction of an authorization service infrastructure for the IoT. The infrastructure uses local authorization entities, which provide authorization services to address heterogeneous security requirements and resource constraints in the IoT. The authorization services can be accessed through software interfaces provided by the SST infrastructure, called accessors. The accessors enable IoT developers to integrate their devices with authorization services without needing to manage credentials and cryptographic operations. To demonstrate that SST guarantees necessary security properties, we have performed a formal security analysis using an automated verification tool. Furthermore, we show the scalability of our approach with a mathematical analysis, in addition experiments to evaluate security overhead under different security profiles supported by SST.
