Abstract

Internet of Things (IoT) is a promising networking paradigm that connects various kinds of sensors and exchanges data from smart devices. Since IoT always related to user’s daily life, the problems of security and privacy are of great importance. Presently, the attribute based encryption (ABE) is a popular solution to guarantee the fine-grained sharing of encrypted data in IoT. In this paper, an attribute based keyword search with lightweight decryption in multi-authority (ABKS-LD-MA) is proposed. Our system supports multi-keyword search in cloud by using searchable attribute based encryption. We also integrate the lightweight decryption to searchable ABE scheme that largely reduces the computing overhead for users. Furthermore, our ABKS-LD-MA scheme supports multi-authority scenario, which is more adaptive to the real IoT environment. The experiment analysis shows that our scheme has relatively lowered the communication cost on IoT devices.
