Researchers at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore have proposed algorithms that generate and store a very small piece of secret information within an Internet of Things (IoT) device.
The information can concisely represent the whole history dataset, and can be retrieved for authentication.
The researchers note this two-step system can be compatible with IoT devices with low computation and small memory.
The researchers found using the data exchanged between the device and the server has very interesting leakage-resilience properties. Since data is constantly generated by the IoT device and sent to the server, the history dataset is always growing. As a result, hackers would have to steal a significant amount of data over an extended period of time, becoming more open to detection in the process.
