This paper aims to show that it is possible to improve security for over the air update functionalities in an automotive scenario through the use of a cryptographic scheme, called “Attribute-Based-Encryption” (ABE), which grants confidentiality to the software/firmware update done Over The Air (OTA). We demonstrate that ABE is seamlessly integrable into the state of the art solutions regarding the OTA update by showing that the overhead of the ABE integration in terms of computation time and…

On the Feasibility of Attribute-Based Encryption on Smartphone Devices
This paper implemented AndrABEn, an ABE library for Android operating system, and implements two main ABE schemes: Ciphertext-Policy Attribute-Based Encryption, and Key- Policy Attribut-BasedEncryption, confirming the possibility to effectively use ABE on smartphone devices.
On the Feasibility of Attribute-Based Encryption on Constrained IoT Devices for Smart Systems
The performance evaluation shows that the adoption of ABE on constrained devices is feasible, although it has a cost that increases with the number of attributes, and highlights how ABE has a significant impact in the lifetime of battery-powered devices, which is impaired significantly when a high number of Attributes is adopted.

Attribute-based encryption and sticky policies for data access control in a smart home scenario: a comparison on networked smart object middleware
This paper compares the advantages and the drawbacks in terms of performance and robustness of such two techniques by means of their integration within the prototype of an IoT middleware, named networked smart object.
Ciphertext-Policy Attribute-Based Encryption
A system for realizing complex access control on encrypted data that is conceptually closer to traditional access control methods such as role-based access control (RBAC) and secure against collusion attacks is presented.
Server-Aided Revocable Attribute-Based Encryption
This paper proposes a notion called server-aided revocable ABE (SR-ABE), in which almost all workloads of data users incurred by user revocation are delegated to an untrusted server and each data user only needs to store a key of constant size.
Achieving Secure, Scalable, and Fine-grained Data Access Control in Cloud Computing
This paper addresses the problem of simultaneously achieving fine-grainedness, scalability, and data confidentiality of access control by exploiting and uniquely combining techniques of attribute-based encryption (ABE), proxy re-encryption, and lazy re- Encryption.
ABE-Cities: An Attribute-Based Encryption System for Smart Cities
ABE-Cities encrypts data before storing it in the cloud and provides users with keys able to decrypt only those portions of data the user is authorized to access, while ensuring fine-grained access control on data by means of Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE).
