A Study on KSI-based Authentication Management and Communication for Secure Smart Home Environments

2018 KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems  
In smart home environment, certificate based signature technology is being studied by communication with Internet of Things(IoT) device. However, block -chain technology has attracted much attention because of the problems such as single -point error and management overhead of the trust server. Among them, Keyless Signature Infrastructure(KSI) provides integrity by configuring user authentication and global timestamp of distributed server into block chain by using hash-based one-time key. In

In addition, we propose a smart home environment that can reduce the storage space by using Extended Merkle Tree and secure and efficient KSI-based authentication and communication with enhanced security strength.
