Contemporary developments in providing proper security in the Internet of Things (IoT) have been made signcryption scheme highly suitable for various applications such as smart cities, smart healthcare and smart agriculture. However, security and privacy are the primary concerns in protecting data as it was highly sensitive. This paper is proposing a new Identity based online/off-line signcryption scheme suitable to provide secure message communication among IoT devices, gateway, and the

This scheme provides a security solution for integrating Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) into the IoT. Experimentation was done and finally compared against existing techniques and proved that the proposed mechanism reduces the computation time in online by performing a greater number of operations in off-line signcryption phase. Further, it provides indistinguishability against adaptive chosen ciphertext attacks and existential unforgeability against adaptive chosen messages attacks.
