LATe: A Lightweight Authenticated Time Synchronization Protocol for IoT

Renzo E. Navas, Laurent Toutain
2018 2018 Global Internet of Things Summit (GIoTS)  
Time synchronization is fundamental for a wide variety of IoT applications. Time is also fundamental to provide security services such as certificates or OAuth-token validation. Having a secure source of time is a fundamental problem, and the first step to provide other services for applications. There is no standardized lightweight and secure time synchronization solution suitable for IoT. We propose a Lightweight Authenticated Time (LATe) Synchronization Protocol. Our proposal is based on
