Secure bootstrapping and access control in NDN-based smart home systems


Ensuring homeowners' privacy and security is of vital importance in smart home systems. We adopt a data-centric approach to develop a smart home system over Named Data Networking. We address two specific problems: (a) establishing a trust relationship between a new device and the system, and (b) ensuring only authorized users can access data in the system. Our implementation allows a homeowner to use a smartphone to add new devices and control access at a fine granularity.
