Secure Ownership Transfer for the Internet of Things

Martin Gunnarsson, Christian Gehrmann

Abstract

With the increasing number of IoT devices deployed, the problem of switching ownership of devices is becoming more apparent. Especially, there is a need for transfer protocols not only addressing a single unit ownership transfer but secure transfer of a complete infrastructure of IoT units including also resource constraint devices. In this paper we present our novel ownership transfer protocol for an infrastructure of IoT devices. The protocol is light-weight as it only uses symmetric key operations on the IoT side. The ownership transfer protocol is carefully security evaluated both using a theoretical analysis and with automatic protocol verification. In addition, we show the feasibility of the ownership transfer protocol through a proof of concept implementation including performance figures.
