Fundamentals and Architecture of Internet of Things


Relay Technology for 5G Networks and IoT Applications

Relaying technologies have been actively studied in mobile broadband communication systems, and were considered in the most recent standard releases of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), including “Long Term Evolution Advanced” (LTE-A) networks. This chapter provides an in-depth review of the relay technology that is being considered for future 5G networks. The article first introduces and compares different relay types that use LTE-A standards, and presents the relay benefits in terms of performance and operational costs. It then highlights future relay deployment strategies that have been discussed by the 3GPP, which supports multi-hopping, mobility, and heterogeneity. In addition, it also proposes efficient deployment strategies, along with their impact on network performance. Finally, the chapter explains a few of the associated challenges that lie ahead for relay application, and provides a video streaming application.

Two-Way Authentication for the Internet-of-Things

This chapter introduces the first fully implemented two-way authentication security scheme for Internet-of-Things (IoT) based on existing Internet standards, specifically the Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocol. By relying on an established standard, existing implementations, engineering techniques, and security infrastructure can be reused, which enables an easy security uptake. The proposed security scheme uses two public key cryptography algorithms, RSA (Rivest, Shamir und Adleman) and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), tailored for the resource heterogeneous nature of IoT devices. The two-way authentication solution presented is designed to work over standard communication stacks that offer UDP/IPv6 networking for Low power Wireless Personal Area Networks (LoWPANs). A prototype implementation of DTLS is presented here in the context of a system architecture, and the scheme’s feasibility (low overheads and high interoperability) is demonstrated through extensive evaluations on the DTLS-supporting platform OPAL as clusterhead with children of different IoT hardware platforms.

MAC Protocols in Body Area Network-A Survey

Body area networks represent the natural union between connectivity and miniaturization. Formally, it is defined as a system of devices in close proximity to a persons body that cooperate for the benefit of the user. These networks are appealing to the researchers due to their wide range of application areas such as remote health monitoring, fitness monitoring, triage, biosensors etc. However, typical properties of body area network bring the necessity to achieve an efficient medium access protocol in terms of power consumption and delay. Various medium access protocols with different objectives were proposed for wireless sensor network by many researchers. This chapter throws light on some features that make body area networks different from wireless sensor networks. A comparative study of various medium access protocols for body area networks is also presented.

Distributed Systems and Security in Internet of Things


Secure Distributed Group Rekeying Scheme for Cluster Based Wireless Sensor Networks Using Multilevel Encryption

Recently evolution in various devices, aid unrealistic dreams of connection between them and people on a large scale comes true and accelerates the idea of the Internet of Things (IoT). Sensors are playing an important role in this way. Conversely wireless sensor networks take the advantages to build a bridge and become an edge for IoT. By enhancing the usage of wireless sensor networks in many fields such as military, having a secure environment for communication within sensors is becoming more obligatory. Wireless sensor networks can be affected by active or passive attacks. One of the important concerns to reach to the aim of the IoT after deploying WSNs is its security. In this chapter, a model that is dealing with a variety of passive attacks, including node capturing and eavesdropping, which make data to be eliminated or changed is proposed. Due to the resource constrained of WSNs, secured schemes that use in ad hoc and wired networks are not appropriate. Additionally, to ensure environmental security and reduce usage of limited resources of sensors, a novel scheme using dynamic key management and encrypted data security is proposed. In order to prevent invader’s access to encrypted data, generating a new key during re-keying model is developed. For this purpose, a random number is sent as a pattern instead of regular sending a new key to a group of sensors for encryption. Index of an array, which is pre-distributed among sensors is determined through location of 1’s in the binary representation of the pattern, involve keys, which used in encryption or decryption. The results show that the complexity of time is $$O(K*N)$$, where K is the size of the array, which its keys use in encryption or decryption, and N is the length of the text that should be encrypted or decrypted. Furthermore, by paying more time linearly the security of the network is increased exponentially for the larger scales of networks.

Recognizing Attacks in Wireless Sensor Network in View of Internet of Things

Wireless sensor networks are wide spreading, dominating, and has a far-reaching range of utilizations such as battlefield scrutiny, traffic scrutiny, forest fire detection, flood detection etc. Both industry and academia are targeting their research works for the sake of advancing their functions. The safety of a wireless sensor network is negotiated due to the random distribution of sensor nodes in exposed environment, memory restraints, power restraints and unattended nature. Furthermore, providing confidence between every couple of communicating nodes is a demanding issue and is of prime importance in internet of things. Under these conditions this chapter spotlights variety of attacks and their symptoms thoroughly. The chapter analyzes them based on trusting based protection techniques including classical techniques such as fuzzy, Bayesian, game theory etc. Modern techniques such as clustering, bio-inspired computing, key establishment based techniques are stressed upon to provide maximum protection for each node in the wireless sensor network.

Challenges of Distributed Storage Systems in Internet of Things

Internet of things presents a general concept of the strength of different network devices to sense and collect important information from the world around it, and then it share this information across the internet where it accessed, processed and utilized for various other interesting purposes. This concept of internet of things will be an integrated part of the future internet. But in order to gain more benefits, it is essential to store heterogeneous data captured by various devices for further analysis. But it requires vast amount of storage space which cannot be handled using traditional centralized storage system. So it is achieved using the concept of distributed storage systems and the growth of these storage devices impose many challenges related to topologies and interconnection protocols, data consistency, error handling, security and privacy, etc. Ensuring security and privacy to the users is a major challenge considering the sensitive, personal or confidential nature of the data stored in the system.

Internet of Things Based Intelligent Elderly Care System

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that most common cause of injuries to elderly people increases every year due to fall events. Human fall events are one of the most important health problem among the elderly people whos aged 65 and above, which could probably result in a significant barrier to their independent living. This chapter presents a method for fall activity detection based on Motion Projection Profile (MPP) features extracted from temporal difference image to represent a various levels of a person’s posture. Falls are detected by analyzing the projection profile features consist of the measure of motion pixel of each row, column, left diagonal and right diagonal of the temporal difference image and gives adequate information to recognize the instantaneous posture of the person. The experiments are carried out using publicly available fall detection dataset and the extracted MPP feature set are modeled by the various machine learning methods like Support Vector Machine (SVM) with polynomial kernel, SVM with Radial Basis Function (RBF) kernel, K-Nearest Neighbor (KNN) and the Decision tree (J48) algorithm are used to classify the fall activies. Experimental results show that SVM with RBF kernel is an efficient to recognize the fall activity with an overall recognition accuracy of 89.55% on the fall detection dataset, which outperforms other machine learning methods.
