A Scalable Model for Secure Multiparty Authentication

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Distributed system architectures such as cloud computing or the emergent architectures of the Internet Of Things, present significant challenges for security and privacy. Specifically, in a complex application there is a need to securely delegate access control mechanisms to one or more parties, who in turn can govern methods that enable multiple other parties to be authenticated in relation to the services that they wish to consume. We identify shortcomings in an existing
proposal by Xu et al for multiparty authentication and evaluate a novel model from Al-Aqrabi et al that has been designed specifically for complex multiple security realm environments.
The adoption of a Session Authority Cloud ensures that resources for authentication requests are scalable, whilst permitting the necessary architectural abstraction for myriad hardware IoT devices such as actuators and sensor networks, etc. In addition, the ability to ensure that session credentials are confirmed with the relevant resource principles means that the essential rigour for multiparty authentication is established.
