IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things

Simone Cirani presented a new research paper, co-authored with Marco Picone, at the 2nd IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things in Milan, Italy, on Dec. 14th, 2015.

The paper, entitled “Effective Authorization for the Web of Things,” presents a fully standard-based solution to the management of authorized access to smart objects in the Web of Things. Through the use of standard communication protocols (such as, HTTP and CoAP) and mechanisms (OAuth), it is possible to deploy a scalable and extremely flexible delegation-based solution that can be easily adopted by end-users, by replicating well-known usage patterns.
