This paper addresses the Internet of Things. Main enabling factor of this promising paradigm is the integration of several technologies and communications solutions. Identification and tracking technologies, wired and wireless sensor and actuator networks, enhanced communication protocols (shared with the Next Generation Internet), and distributed(More)
Recently there has been quite a number of independent research activities that investigate the potentialities of integrating social networking concepts into Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. The resulting paradigm, named Social Internet of Things (SIoT), has the potential to support novel applications and networking services for the IoT in more effective(More)
The actual development of the Internet of Things (IoT) needs major issues related to things’ service discovery and composition to be addressed. This paper proposes a possible approach to solve such issues. We introduce a novel paradigm of “social network of intelligent objects”, namely the Social Internet of Things (SIoT), based on the notion of social(More)
The future Internet will embody a large number of objects that, through standard communication protocols and unique addressing schemes, provide information and services to the final users. Indeed, billions of objects are expected to take a major active role in the future network, bringing physical world data into the world of digital content and services.(More)
The integration of social networking concepts into the Internet of things has led to the Social Internet of Things (SIoT) paradigm, according to which objects are capable of establishing social relationships in an autonomous way with respect to their owners with the benefits of improving the network scalability in information/service discovery. Within this(More)

Internet of Things (IoT) has been a major research topic for almost a decade now, where physical objects would be interconnected as a result of convergence of various existing technologies. IoT is rapidly developing; however there are uncertainties about its security and privacy which could affect its sustainable development. This paper analyzes the(More)
