Recently, Kalra and Sood proposed an authentication scheme based on Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) to have embedded devices and cloud servers communicate securely using HTTP cookies. After analyzing their scheme, it is found that there are five issues that are not properly addressed. In this paper, the details and further discussions are given.
