Secure and Low-Power Authentication for Resource-Constrained Devices

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to an interconnected world where physical devices seamlessly integrate into a global network and become active participants of business, information, and social processes. Deploying such Internet-connected smart objects is challenging, since they need to be correctly configured with appropriate network and security credentials. This is exacerbated by the fact that they have minimal input capabilities and may be in inaccessible locations.

This Best Paper Award winning article, describes how to employ 3GPP Generic Bootstrapping Architecture (GBA) to ensure secure authentication and communication.
