Privacy-enhancing Federated Middleware for the Internet of Things

Paul Fremantle, Benjamin Aziz

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


OAuthing and IGNITE are federated middleware that together provide an improved model for sharing data from Internet of Things (IoT) devices to Cloud Services. OAuthing provides an identity broker and authorization server that issues OAuth2 anonymised credentials based on upstream identities from the User’s Identity Provider. IGNITE is a cloud-based message router that uses identity and authorization policies from OAuthing to instantiate each user a cloud-based container for sharing their data.

The demonstration will show the post-manufacturing pro- cess to register a device with OAuthing, together with a user “claiming”a device. Once the device is claimed it will be connected to a third-party cloud service, with full user consent to create an policy. We will then demonstrate the policy in action and the creation of a cloud-instance on behalf of the user.
