IOTURVA: Securing Device–to–Device (D2D) Communication in IoT Networks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


We present IoTurva, a platform dedicated to securing Device-to-Device (D2D) communication in IoT networks. IoTurva targets an alarming and yet unexplored region in IoT security, where the interactions and dependencies across heterogeneous IoT devices are extremely hard to secure and regulate. Different from existing proposals that mostly tackle conventional device-to-infrastructure communication for IoT, our solution embeds the security functions within the connectivity for IoT devices and can provide selective network isolation at device-level granularity. To demonstrate IoTurva, we have implemented a prototype and evaluated it through several live scenarios in the testbed. Our results show that IoTurva is responsive and can effectively control cross-device dependencies and D2D interactions in IoT networks.
