Abstract

In the Internet of Things (IoT) heterogeneous technologies concur to the provisioning of customized services able to bridge the gap between the physical and digital realms. Security, privacy and data quality are acknowledged to represent key issues to be tackled in order to foster the large-scale adoption of IoT systems and technologies. One instrumental aspect concerns the ability of the system to preserve security in the presence of external attacks. In such a scenario, the integration of a flexible IoT middleware, able to handle a large number of data streams and of interconnected devices, with a flexible policy enforcement framework is needed and presented in this paper. The proposed solution aims to ease the management of interactions across different realms and policy conflicts. Its effectiveness is validated by means of a lightweight and cross-domain prototypical implementation.
