A Centralized Trust Management Mechanism for the Internet of Things (CTM-IoT)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an extended network that allows all devices to be connected to one another over the Internet. This new network faces numerous challenges, but mainly security issues. One such issue is how the IoT’s nodes can trust each other when they are connected over the Internet. There is a lack of studies that address the issue of trust management in IoT, or that provide a fully trustworthy framework. This paper proposes and delivers a centralized trust management mechanism for IoT by adding trust modules as a feature of the central trust manager, the Super Node (SN). To deliver a comprehensive approach, the SN includes other modules which are integrated with the whole IoT Trust Management framework to provide trustworthy communication between all nodes.
