Abstract

Among the security issues in the environment of the Internet of things (IOT), the security of information source is a privilege to be concerned. To protect data collection and control devices in IOT, first of all, ones shall ensure the authenticity of information source. To address the uncertainty problem of information sources in IOT, identity authentication technology is essential. In this study, we suggested an enhanced bidirectional authentication scheme that is suitable for Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) communications among devices or between devices and control devices in an IOT environment. Specific improvement measures included three aspects: back-up terminals, a condition monitoring device to increase authentication properties, and an alarm mechanism. The enhanced bidirectional authentication protocol presented in this article has the characteristics of excellent performance in security and privacy protection, which could authenticate data contents, even positions and other data properties, and resist the replay or denial of service attacks; at the same time, it could overcome the defect of data asynchrony between the front end and the back end, providing users with excellent forward security. The simulation experiments showed that system reliability was greatly enhanced by adopting the proposed protocol.
