SmartenIT member Corinna Schmitt (UZH) was invited to Distributed Network Service and Management Laboratory at the Computer Science Department, New York City College (NY, USA) to present here research on Internet of Things and related security issues. This research is currently under standardization of IETF in the pending work group ACE. It deals with establishing an end-to-end security solution by supporting a two-way authentication in networks with constraint devices together with a pre-shared key solution if no Trusted Platform Module is supported by the used hardware. The authentication and authorization approaches are scope of the external liaisons plan with the EU project FLAMINGO, where UZH is partner.

Summarizing the relevant impact of the invited talk at the New York City College (NYCC) it can be stated that NYCC is very interesting in the presented solution as well as in upcoming cooperation in Internet of Things when addressing data access and cloud solutions. The followed discussion within the audience and in individual meetings showed that it has to be investigated how to bring trust into communication and that it is important to use standards, as well as supporting independency to layers below the application layer. The solution should also be applicable to different scenarios, network sizes, and hardware.
