  journal={Proceedings of the Seventh International Conference on the Internet of Things},
As the Internet of Thing (IoT) matures, a lot of concerns are being raised about security, privacy and interoperability. The Web of Things (WoT) model leverages web technologies to improve interoperability. Due to its distributed components, the web scaled well beyond initial expectations. Still, secure authentication and communication across organization boundaries rely on the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) which is a non-transparent, centralized single point of failure. We can improve… Expand
