An Attribute Based Encryption Scheme to Secure Fog Communications

M AKHIL, G.S Udaya Kiran Babu


Fog computing is deemed as a highly virtualized paradigm that can enable computing at the Internet of Things devices, residing in the edge of the network, for the purpose of delivering services and applications more efficiently and effectively. Since fog computing originates from and is a non-trivial extension of cloud computing, it inherits many security and privacy challenges of cloud computing, causing the extensive concerns in the research community. To enable authentic and confidential communications among a group of fog nodes, in this paper, we propose an efficient key exchange protocol based on ciphertext policy attribute-based encryption (CP-ABE) to establish secure communications among the participants.
