Abstract

Background/Objectives: To create a comprehensive fleet tracking system using Internet Of Things (IOT). A fleet tracking system generally provides information on the route that is being used by the vehicle. Other general information like source, destination and driver information can be fed into the system beforehand. Methods/Statistical Analysis: For Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications, it becomes necessary to provide several real-time data such as temperature, pressure and humidity to ensure that the transported perishable goods are in good condition. In this paper, the parameters are monitored using a Raspberry-pi and a Sense Hat. Findings: This paper also aims to provide a security feature that can identify authorised personnel who can get access to the transported goods, using Raspberry pi and a Raspberry pi Camera with night vision to provide the real-time information and security alerts using image processing technology. These data are then fed to a server to provide access to drivers, administrators, vendors and management teams for efficient handling of the services. Applications/Improvements: With the boom in online shopping sector and an increase in demand in the freight transportation services, a security feature that can identify authorised personnel can go a long way in improving security.

... To achieve secure authentication, we visualize a security management access based control technique by perceptively exploiting the transmitter time change attributes (i.e. users' behaviors, communication attributes and hardware attributes) for improving security [75]. Specifically, one attribute is used for primary authentication. ...

The rapid growth of the Internet of Things technology (IoT) in healthcare domain led to the appearance of many security threats and risks. It became very challenging to provide full protection with the expansion in using sensor objects in medical field, this led to the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) definition, the security part in IoMT poses a perilous problem that keeps growing; because of the data sensitivity and critical information. The lack of providing a secure environment in IoMT may lead to patients' privacy issues, not only leaving the data privacy of the patient's at risk but also their lives can be in-danger. In this paper, we providea discussion on both definition and architecture of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and to propose a new authentication approach through machine learning; to enhance the security level. The authentication was developed through adopting both trust management and machine learning at the gateway for recognizing the resource-constraint devices frequencies and the access timing. The main purpose is to examine the dynamic environment of the medical field and achieve an adaptive access control. Gradually, the security improvement will be provided in IoMT systems; to reduce the communication latency, have pro-active approaches over the security risks, and provide data privacy for both the patients and doctors in a healthcare environment.

This paper describes the design, construction and validation of a mobile sensory platform for greenhouse monitoring. The complete system consists of a sensory system on board a small quadrotor (i.e., a four rotor mini-UAV). The goals of this system include taking measures of temperature, humidity, luminosity and CO2 concentration and plotting maps of these variables. These features could potentially allow for climate control, crop monitoring or failure detection (e.g., a break in a plastic cover). The sensors have been selected by considering the climate and plant growth models and the requirements for their integration onboard the quadrotor. The sensors layout and placement have been determined through a study of quadrotor aerodynamics and the influence of the airflows from its rotors. All components of the system have been developed, integrated and tested through a set of field experiments in a real greenhouse. The primary contributions of this paper are the validation of the quadrotor as a platform for measuring environmental variables and the determination of the optimal location of sensors on a quadrotor.

Background/Objectives: Internet of Things (IoT) has made significant changes in the real world and penetrates all aspects of human life. The user acceptance of IoT is enormously high and its widespread usage is because of the availability of smart phones and tablets. Wide adoption of IoT in the applications of each field always collecting sensitive information and provide a larger surface for intruders. So privacy preserved authentication and access controls are big challenges in its research area. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this paper we introduced a novel algorithm based on Zero Knowledge Protocol and Accumulated Hashing to provide secure authentication to sensor enabled mobile devices in IoT. Also for ensuring confidentiality in communication proposed a new method for key exchange using current time. Findings: The proposed method fulfills the requirements of resource and battery constrained mobile devices in IoT when compared with traditional authentication and access control mechanisms for other applications.

In the era of Internet world, passwords are essential to protect our data and the application. Relying on a simple plaintext password would lead to vulnerability. Apart from choosing strong passwords, the authentication model plays a crucial role in Internet Security by protecting the web applications efficiently from various security attacks. Objectives: The aim of the paper is to provide an Efficient Authentication Model and adopt a new technique in generating a dynamic salt from the client. Hence it protects Internet applications from five types of security attacks, namely password-guessing attack, keylogger attack, replay attack, streaming bots, and screen-capture attacks. Methods: The One Time Password (OTP) based image-selection enables the user to protect the Internet application from streaming bots, keyloggers and screen-capture attacks. Findings: The architecture has been designed efficiently to minimize the number of transactions between the client and the server. The dependency on hardware devices for authentication can be completely eradicated by using Efficient Authentication Model (EAM). Hence, the authentication is well-suited for Internet applications requiring higher levels of security. Application: It is a single solution for multiple security problems with minimal cost and highly secured with improved performance. Hence, it can be implemented by banks, financial organization, etc. where security is very significant.
