A Distributed Approach for Secure M2M Communications

By Yosra Ben Saied, Alexis Olivereau and Maryline Laurent


Abstract—A key establishment solution for heterogeneous Machine to Machine (M2M) communications is proposed. Decentralization in M2M environment leads to situations where highly resource-constrained nodes have to establish end-to-end secured contexts with powerful remote servers, which would normally be impossible because of the technological gap between these classes of devices. This paper proposes a novel collaborative session key exchange method, wherein a highly resourceconstrained node obtains assistance from its more powerful neighbors when handling costly cryptographic operations. Formal security analysis and performance evaluation of this method are provided; they confirm the safety and efficiency of the proposed solution.
