    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.67, No.1, pp. 1103-1119, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.014035

    Abstract The Internet of Things (IoT) is where almost anything can be controlled and managed remotely by means of sensors. Although the IoT evolution led to quality of life enhancement, many of its devices are insecure. The lack of robust key management systems, efficient identity authentication, low fault tolerance, and many other issues lead to IoT devices being easily targeted by attackers. In this paper we propose a new authentication protocol called Authenblue that improve the authentication process of IoT devices and Coordinators of Personal Area Network (CPANs) in an Industrial IoT (IIoT) environment. This study proposed Authenblue protocol as a… More >

    Robust Attack Detection Approach for IIoT Using Ensemble Classifier

    V. Priya1, I. Sumaiya Thaseen1, Thippa Reddy Gadekallu1, Mohamed K. Aboudaif2,*, Emad Abouel Nasr3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.66, No.3, pp. 2457-2470, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.013852

    Abstract Generally, the risks associated with malicious threats are increasing for the Internet of Things (IoT) and its related applications due to dependency on the Internet and the minimal resource availability of IoT devices. Thus, anomaly-based intrusion detection models for IoT networks are vital. Distinct detection methodologies need to be developed for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) network as threat detection is a significant expectation of stakeholders. Machine learning approaches are considered to be evolving techniques that learn with experience, and such approaches have resulted in superior performance in various applications, such as pattern recognition, outlier analysis, and speech recognition.… More >

    Internet of Things Enabled Intelligent Energy Management and Control System for Heavy Equipment Industrial Park and Fuzzy Assessment of Its Schemes

    Jia Zhu*

    Energy Engineering, Vol.118, No.2, pp. 379-397, 2021, DOI:10.32604/EE.2021.014178

    Abstract In order to solve the problems of poor information flow, low energy utilization rate and energy consumption data reuse in the heavy equipment industrial park, the Internet of Things (IoT) technology is applied to construct the intelligent energy management and control system (IEMCS). The application architecture and function module planning are analyzed and designed. Furthermore, the IEMCS scheme is not unique due to the fuzziness of customer demand and the understanding deviation of designer to customer demand in the design stage. Scheme assessment is of great significance for the normal subsequent implementation of the system. A fuzzy assessment method for… More >
