Abstract

The advent of embedded systems has completely transformed the information landscape. With the explosive growth in the use of interactive real-time technologies, this internet landscape aims to support an even broader range of application domains. The large amount of data that is exchanged by these applications has made them an attractive target for attacks. Thus it is important to employ security mechanisms to protect these systems from attackers. A major challenge facing researchers is the resource constrained nature of these systems, which renders most of the traditional security mechanisms almost useless. In this paper we propose a lightweight ICmetrics based security architecture using lattices. The features of the proposed architecture fulfill both the requirements of security as well as energy efficiency. The proposed architecture provides authentication, confidentiality, non-repudiation and integrity of data. Using the identity information derived from ICmetrics of the device, we further construct a sign cryption scheme based on lattices that makes use of certificate less PKC to achieve the security requirements of the design. This scheme is targeted on resource constrained environments, and can be used widely in applications that require sufficient levels of security with limited resources.
