Abstract : In recent years, technologies play a vital role in day to day activities, of which cloud computing and Internet of Things form a primary role. The integration of these two technologies would be a huge advancement wherein there is a large pool of embedded devices communicating with the cloud. However, there are a lot of issues when we go for this integration. One of the main concerns is security, where device authentication and data privacy plays a vital role. In this paper, a mutual authentication scheme using Elliptic Curve Cryptography has been proposed. The proposed scheme has been analyzed against the work of Kalra et al. and the possible drawbacks with resolutions have been presented. The proposed scheme is verified using AVISPA and is proved to be strong against several attacks which prove it is more secure, powerful and efficient. © Academic Press. All rights reserved.
