Feasibility Assessment of a Fine-Grained Access Control Model on Resource Constrained Sensors
AbstractUpcoming smart scenarios enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT) envision smart objects that provide services that can adapt to user behavior or be managed to achieve greater productivity. In such environments, smart things are inexpensive and, therefore, constrained devices. However, they are also critical components because of the importance of the information that they provide. Given this, strong security is a requirement, but not all security mechanisms in general and access control models in particular are feasible. In this paper, we present the feasibility assessment of an access control model that utilizes a hybrid architecture and a policy language that provides dynamic fine-grained policy enforcement in the sensors, which requires an efficient message exchange protocol called Hidra. This experimental performance assessment includes a prototype implementation, a performance evaluation model, the measurements and related discussions, which demonstrate the feasibility and adequacy of the analyzed access control model.

Description: Expressive policy based access control model for resource-constrained sensors conveying a policy language and a specific codification mechanism as well as an end-to-end security association establishment protocol. This model enables fine-grained access control based in local context and usage. The security and performance evaluation concludes that this access control model is both feasible and adequate for severely constrained devices.
