Scalable Secure Authentication in Mesh-enabled Networks for Smart Cities
The proposed solution will address the aforementioned challenges by attempting to provide scalable authentication and encryption mechanisms. A combination of software and hardware based approaches can be used to provide enhanced security to constrained IoT nodes with respect to their timing and power demands. Technologies such as Bluetooth or 802.11ax mesh networking could be critical to smart city implementations, and will be investigated. We are proposing a smart city friendly complete proof-of-concept implementation.
