SOME SECURITY FEATURES OF SELECTED IOT PLATFORMS
IoT (Internet of Things) is certainly one of the leading current and future trends for processing in the current distributed world. It is changing our life and society. IoT allows new ubiquitous applications and processing, but, on the other hand, it introduces potentially serious security threats. Nowadays researchers in IoT areas should, without a doubt, consider and focus on security aspects. This paper is aimed at a high-level review of the existing IoT enabling standalone middleware solutions and frameworks in terms of potential application areas, architecture and components, communication APIs as well as support for key security features including access control, support against attacks on service, device authorization and data filtering. On the one hand, it allows the developer to choose the middleware best matching their needs. On the other hand, it can serve as a starting point for further research on middleware security features based on the provid ed security related open areas and challenges.
