Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper we outline the challenges of Web API management in Internet of Things (IoT) projects.Web API management is a key aspect of service-oriented systems that includes the following elements: metadata publishing, access control and key management, monitoring and monetisation of interactions, as well as usage control and throttling. We look at how Web API management principles, including some of the above elements, translate into a world of connected devices (IoT). In particular, we present and evaluate a prototype that addresses the issue of managing authentication with millions of insecure low-power devices communicating with non-HTTP protocols. With this rst step, we are only beginning to investigate IoT API management, therefore we also discuss necessary future work.
