In recent years, edge computing has emerged as a new concept in the computing paradigm that empowers several future technologies, such as 5G, vehicle-to-vehicle communications, and the Internet of Things (IoT), by providing cloud computing facilities, as well as services to the end users. However, open communication among the entities in an edge based IoT environment makes it vulnerable to various potential attacks that are executed by an adversary. Device authentication is one of the prominent techniques in security that permits an IoT device to authenticate mutually with a cloud server with the help of an edge node. If authentication ...


A Privacy Framework For Decentralized Applications Using Blockchains And Zero Knowledge Proofs, David Gabay Oct 2019

A Privacy Framework For Decentralized Applications Using Blockchains And Zero Knowledge Proofs, David Gabay

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

With the increasing interest in connected vehicles along with electrification opportunities, there is an ongoing effort to automate the charging process of electric vehicles (EVs) through their capabilities to communicate with the infrastructure and each other. However, charging EVs takes time and thus in-advance scheduling is needed. As this process is done frequently due to limited mileage of EVs, it may expose the locations and charging pattern of the EV to the service providers, raising privacy concerns for their users. Nevertheless, the EV still needs to be authenticated to charging providers, which means some information will need to be provided ...


Work-In-Progress: Iot Device Signature Validation, Jeffrey Hemmes Oct 2019

Work-In-Progress: Iot Device Signature Validation, Jeffrey Hemmes

Regis University Faculty Publications

Device fingerprinting is an area of security that has received renewed attention in recent years, with a number of classification methods proposed that rely on characteristics unique to a particular vendor or device type. Current works are limited to determining device type for purposes of access control and MAC address spoof prevention. This work synthesizes multiple sources of information to verify device capabilities in a device profile, which can be used in a number of applications not limited to authentication and authorization. The approach proposed in this paper relies on existing protocols and methods proposed in the literature, using a ...

Smart grid has emerged as the next-generation electricity grid with power flow optimization and high power quality. Smart grid technologies have attracted the attention of industry and academia in the last few years. However, the tradeoff between security and efficiency remains a challenge in the practical deployment of the smart grid. Most recently, Li et al. proposed a lightweight message authentication scheme with user anonymity and claimed that their scheme is provably secure. But we found that their scheme fails to achieve mutual authentication and mitigate some typical attacks (e.g., impersonation attack, denial of service attack) in the smart ...
