Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), deployed in distributed Internet of Things (IoT) applications, measure data, process, exchange information, and function collaboratively with other sensor nodes and end-users, which can be internal or external to the network. To maintain the reliable connectivity and the accessibility of distributed IoT, it is vital to establish secure links for end-to-end communication with a strong pervasive communication mechanism. However, due to the resource constraints and heterogeneous characteristics of the sensor devices, traditional authentication and key management schemes are not effective for such applications. Here we propose a pervasive lightweight authentication and keying mechanism for WSNs in distributed IoT applications in which the sensor nodes can establish secure links with peer sensor nodes and end-users. The established authentication scheme is based on implicit certificates and it provides application level end-to-end security. A comprehensive description of the scenario based behaviour of the protocol is presented. With the performance evaluation and the security analysis, it is justified that the proposed scheme is viable to deploy in the resource constrained WSNs.

OtherContinuing from the outstanding success of IEEE IEMCON 2016, we are proud to present IEEE IEMCON 2017 which will provide an opportunity for researchers, educators and students to discuss and exchange ideas on issues, trends, and developments in Information Technology, Electronics and Mobile Communication. The conference aims to bring together scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds to emphasize dissemination of ongoing research in the fields of in Information Technology, Electronics and Mobile Communication. Contributed papers are solicited describing original works in the above mentioned fields and related technologies. The conference will include a peer-reviewed program of technical sessions, special sessions, business application sessions, tutorials, and demonstration sessions. All accepted papers will be presented during the parallel sessions of the Conference and papers will be submitted for publication at IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
