Abstract [en]

Real-world things are increasingly becoming fully qualified members of the Web. From, pacemakers and medical records to children’s toys and sneakers, things are connected over the Web and publish information that is available for the whole world to see. It is crucial that there is secure access to this Web of Things (WoT) and to the related information published by things on the Web. In this paper, we introduce an architecture that encompasses Web-enabled things in a secure and scalable manner. Our architecture utilizes the features of the well-known role-based access control (RBAC) to specify the access control policies to the WoT, and we use cryptographic keys to enforce such policies. This approach enables prescribers to WoT services to control who can access what things and how access can continue or should terminate, thereby enabling privacy and security of large amount of data that these things are poised to flood the future Web with.
