Topic : A new approach to secure internet of things(IoT) devices using encryption and anonymity capabilities of The Onion Router (TOR)

Authors:Skanda Kumar.B || Nandan goud.B

Abstract:A new revolution of the Internet is the Internet of things (IoT) where various devices and systems are connected to leverage data anywhere, anytime that is expected to spread rapidly, over the coming is estimated that IOT is beneficial for smart home devices as nearly 40 billion connected devices are expected to be in use by 2020 but the biggest problem with such it devices is with limited functionalities is the security. Securing communications between devices and their back-end systems is one of the most severe problems. In some specific IoT cases, VPN can handle the secure connection, but VPN is not always possible. Hence there Is an immediate need for better technologies and innovative methods through which the hot network security can be greatly enhanced by using The Onion Router(TOR )By default, all traffic in the Tor network is encrypted and the identities and locations of traffic sources are very effectively concealed. Thanks to this, someone intercepting traffic from Tor networks is neither able to identify the sender nor view or alter the messages. These features would be useful when securing an IoT system. Tor network is commonly considered only something which is criminal. in this paper the author is trying to look TOR objectively which is perfectly legal and show its positives uses like securing IoT devices preventing any future catastrophic large-scale cyber attacks..

Keywords: TOR; Security; Internet; Network ;IoT; Anonymous communication.
