The Internet of Things (IoT) is the latest Internet evolution that incorporates a diverse range of things such as sensors, actuators, and services deployed by different organizations and individuals to support a variety of applications. The...

Secure Data-Centric Access Control for Smart Grid Services Based on Publish/Subscribe Systems
Li Duan, Dongxi Liu, Yang Zhang, Shiping Chen, Ren Ping Liu, Bo Cheng, Junliang Chen
Article No.: 23
DOI: 10.1145/3007190

The communication systems in existing smart grids mainly take the request/reply interaction model, in which data access is under the direct control of data producers. This tightly controlled interaction model is not scalable to support complex...

Password-Authenticated Group Key Exchange: A Cross-Layer Design
Yuexin Zhang, Yang Xiang, Xinyi Huang
Article No.: 24
DOI: 10.1145/2955095

Two-party password-authenticated key exchange (2PAKE) protocols provide a natural mechanism for secret key establishment in distributed applications, and they have been extensively studied in past decades. However, only a few efforts have been...

Authentication Protocol for an IoT-Enabled LTE Network
Neetesh Saxena, Santiago Grijalva, Narendra S. Chaudhari
Article No.: 25
DOI: 10.1145/2981547

The Evolved Packet System-based Authentication and Key Agreement (EPS-AKA) protocol of the long-term evolution (LTE) network does not support Internet of Things (IoT) objects and has several security limitations, including transmission of the...

Advanced Security Testbed Framework for Wearable IoT Devices
Shachar Siboni, Asaf Shabtai, Nils O. Tippenhauer, Jemin Lee, Yuval Elovici
Article No.: 26
DOI: 10.1145/2981546

Analyzing the security of Wearable Internet-of-Things (WIoT) devices is considered a complex task due to their heterogeneous nature. In addition, there is currently no mechanism that performs security testing for WIoT devices in different...

Intelligent Intrusion Detection in Low-Power IoTs
Ahmed Saeed, Ali Ahmadinia, Abbas Javed, Hadi Larijani
Article No.: 27
DOI: 10.1145/2990499
