The Internet of Things (IoT) is already a reality: the estimated number of connected objects is currently over 15 billion. Some projections estimate this number will increase to 30 to 80 billion in 2020. If the areas of the Internet of Things applications are diverse in industry, health, transportation or recreation, the issues are known and common. Examples:
- Identification and authentication: how to ensure that an action order received by an object comes from its owner?
- Confidentiality: how to ensure that measurements made by a sensor are not intercepted by a third party?
- Integrity and authenticity: how to verify the authenticity of a product, of a piece of software?
- Protection of Privacy: how to allow the privacy of personal information?
