Cyberphysical Security for the Masses: A Survey of the Internet Protocol Suite for Internet of Things Security

H. Tschofenig, E. Baccelli

Internet of Things (IoT) deployments expand as IoT security lags. This article surveys IoT security protocols standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force and discusses remaining gaps. Although these standardized IoT security protocols do not completely secure IoT devices, they go a long way.

Fast Keyed-Verification Anonymous Credentials on Standard Smart Cards

Jan Camenisch and Manu Drijvers and Petr Dzurenda and Jan Hajny

Cryptographic anonymous credential schemes allow users to prove their personal attributes, such as age, nationality, or the validity of a ticket or a pre-paid pass, while preserving their privacy, as such proofs are unlinkable and attributes can be selectively disclosed. Recently, Chase et al. (CCS 2014) observe that in such...More>>


Secure Firmware Updates for Constrained IoT Devices Using Open Standards: A Reality Check

K. Zandberg, K. Schleiser, F. Acosta, H. Tschofenig, and E. Baccelli

While IoT deployments multiply in a wide variety of verticals, most IoT devices lack a built-in secure firmware update mechanism. Without such a mechanism, however, critical security vulnerabilities cannot be fixed, and IoT devices can become a permanent liability, as demonstrated by recent large-scale attacks. In this paper, we survey...More>>

A Secure Publish/Subscribe Protocol for Internet of Things

Lukas Malina, Gautam Srivastava, Petr Dzurenda and Jan Hajny

The basic concept behind the emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) is to connect as many objects to the Internet as possible in an attempt to make our lives better in some way. However, connecting everyday objects like your car or house to the Internet can open up major security...More>>

Advances in Usability of Formal Methods for Code Verification with Frama-C

André Maroneze, Valentin Perrelle, Florent Kirchner

Industrial usage of code analysis tools based on semantic analysis, such as the Frama-C platform, poses several challenges, from the setup of analyses to the exploitation of their results. In this paper, we discuss two of these challenges. First, such analyses require detailed information about the code structure and the...More>>
