Towards Security and Privacy Framework for

Smart Objects



The extension of the Internet to smart things is estimated to reach 50 to 100 billion devices by 2020, defining the so-called Internet of Things (IoT).  However, the large-scale use of IoT creates the need to address trust and privacy functions adequately. In that sense, the vision of sensors must evolve into an integrated view of smart objects forming part of our personal space, and as being shared, borrowed and, in general, having temporal associations with the users and their personal identities, with these aspects addressed while considering security and privacy rules.

This presentation will focus on key research efforts  at Operational Aspects of Authentication, Authorization, Access control and Privacy management, taking into account approaches like Distributed Capability-Based Access Control (DCapBAC) and its integration with authentication protocols. Following overviews of these research areas, this paper will address how these mechanisms are integrated into a security framework for IoT scenarios that would be compliant with Architecture Reference Models (ARM).
