A Lightweight Authentication and Key Exchange Protocol with Anonymity for IoT
IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications
The number of IoT devices is growing rapidly, and the interaction between devices and servers is also more frequent. However, IoT devices are often at the edge of the network, which leads their communications with the server to be completely exposed, making it more vulnerable to attacks. Moreover, IoT devices have limited energy and computational resources. Therefore, we propose in this paper a lightweight authentication and key exchange protocol with anonymity for IoT devices. The two-way authentication proposed scheme supports mutual authentication between IoT devices and the server. We verify the security of the protocol through formal and informal analyses. Finally, we compare security and performance with other protocols, which shows that our protocol has the advantages of being lightweight and secure.
