Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE) is a powerful cryptographic tool that allows fine-grained access control over data. Due to its features, ABE has been adopted in several applications, such as encrypted storage or access control systems. Recently, researchers argued about the non acceptable performance of ABE when implemented on mobile devices. Indeed, the(More)
In recent years, the growing belief that the current IP-based Internet is becoming obsolete prompted several research efforts that aim to design potential next-generation Internet architectures. Named Data Networking (NDN), an instantiation of the content-centric approach, is one such effort. In contrast with their IP counterparts, NDN routers maintain a(More)
Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a new networking architecture that aims to provide better decoupling between network control (control plane) and data forwarding functionalities (data plane). This separation introduces several benefits, such as a directly programmable and (virtually) centralized network control. However, researchers showed that the(More)
The Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is a key component of future Smart Grids, which allows fine-grained and real-time monitoring of the energy consumption of private houses or entire buildings. In an AMI, intelligent devices, namely Smart Meters (SMs), communicate with a Utility Provider (UP) for both management and billing purposes. However, this(More)
The large spread of sensors and smart devices in urban and rural infrastructures are motivating research in the area of Internet of Thing (IoT), to develop new services and improve citizens' quality of life. Sensors and smart devices generate large amount of measurement data from sensing the environment, which is used to enable services, such as control(More)
Large numbers of smart devices are permeating our environment to collect data and act on the insight derived. Examples of such devices include smart homes, factories, cars, or wearables. For privacy, security, and safety, ensuring correctness of the configuration of these devices is essential. One key mechanism to protect the software integrity of these(More)
—The Internet Protocol (IP) is the lifeblood of the modern Internet. Its simplicity and universality have fueled the unprecedented and lasting global success of the current Internet. Nonetheless, some limitations of IP have been emerging in recent years. Its original design envisaged supporting perhaps tens of thousands of static hosts operating in a(More)
Software Defined Networking (SDN) is an alternative networking paradigm that provides flexible network management through the separation between data plane and control plane functionalities. This separation results in extensive communication between control and data plane, which can result in a severe bottleneck for the whole network, under high traffic(More)
