Abstract

The establishment of the Internet of Things (IoT) is gathering pace. The “things” will be counted in their billions, however interoperability problems may compromise the interconnectivity aspect. Isolated “things” are common and often make use of proprietary communication and security protocols that have not been subject to public scrutiny. By contrast the World Wide Web has well established technology and protocols and so there is interest in the so-called Web of Things (WoT) that would allow the “things” to communicate using standard web protocols. However, with so many readily accessible nodes we considered that the WoT should be underpinned by attack/tamper-resistant security modules that are compatible with the WoT protocols. This paper considers the use of the Smart Card Web Server (SCWS) capability to practically secure the WoT. Finally, the use of a SCWS is extended to provide a means of secure, local Single Sign-On (SSO).
