Abstract: Although the IoT opens the door to endless possibilities, but it is also associated with many risks because all devices connected to the internet involve the use of data points. Therefore, it is essential to ensure IoT security and privacy. A review of existing research works highlights the usage of traditional security scheme based on cryptography for data transmission among IoT nodes and gateways. The proposed system proposes an integrated model that combines lightweight encryption technique with robust and cost-efficient authentication mechanism. The proposed system introduces digital signature-based authentication and complexity minimization in order to resist the involvement of any kind of unknown attacks. The simulation outcome of this model exhibits reliable security, faster response times and energy savings for IoT nodes.
