Abstract [en]

Nowadays, the concept of Internet of Things has revolutionized the industry, making possible the existence of billions of devices worldwide that constantly produce vast amounts of data. This valuable information may only be processed and filtered by complex applications that will eventually sell the information as products. As a consequence, protection of this data and secure, authorized access turn out to be key priorities in this field. A study about authentication protocols has been carried out, according to certain security factors, giving as outcome that OpenID Connect might be the best solution to the problem. Therefore, an authentication / authorisation module has been developed for an IoT platform to protect its data. Evaluations made for the module stated that the protocol and its implementation assure enough levels of security. Nonetheless, accounting features and a better user privacy management are still open issues that avoid full protection of data in an open technology as the Internet.
