The efforts of making our life simpler and easier, with sustainability and environment protection being our main drives, brought about the so-called Internet of things (IoT). One of the biggest challenges in IoT, is secure and seamless interconnection of devices with limited and non-limited capabilities over the Internet,
while utilizing minimum of resources. Group communication has been proven to be more efficient in terms of resource utilization compared with pair-wise communication. However, it does not fulfil the security requirements in the network layer of IoT as yet. This thesis provides a solution that contributes towards security of group communication in the network layer of IoT, using the multicast extension to the security architecture for the Internet protocol (IP) and a group key management protocol that enables dynamic establishment of group security associations and keys, called Group-IKEv2 for IoT.
This thesis work presents the design and implementation of Multicast IPsec with Group-IKEv2 for IoT, discussing vital components that should be taken into consideration during design and implementation phases. Experimental results that indicate the performance and security limitations of the considered
system are presented as well.
