ESDRA: An Efficient and Secure Distributed Remote Attestation Scheme for IoT Swarms

Journal Article


Abstract


  • An Internet of Things (IoT) system generally

    contains thousands of heterogeneous devices which often operate in swarms—large, dynamic, and self-organizing networks.

    Remote attestation is an important cornerstone for the security

    of these IoT swarms, as it ensures the software integrity of swarm

    devices and protects them from attacks. However, current attestation schemes suffer from single point of failure verifier. In this

    paper, we propose an Efficient and Secure Distributed Remote

    Attestation (ESDRA) scheme for IoT swarms. We present the first

    many-to-one attestation scheme for device swarms, which reduces

    the possibility of single point of failure verifier. Moreover, we utilize distributed attestation to verify the integrity of each node and

    apply accusation mechanism to report the invaded nodes, which

    makes ESDRA much easier to feedback the certain compromised

    nodes and reduces the run-time of attestation. We analyze the

    security of ESDRA and do some simulation experiments to show

    its practicality and efficiency. Especially, ESDRA can significantly

    reduce the attestation time and has a better performance in

    the energy consumption comparing with list-based attestation

    schemes.
