SIoT: Giving a Social Structure to the Internet of Things

  title={SIoT: Giving a Social Structure to the Internet of Things},
  author={Luigi Atzori and Antonio Iera and Giacomo Morabito},
  journal={IEEE Communications Letters},
The actual development of the Internet of Things (IoT) needs major issues related to things' service discovery and composition to be addressed. [...] Key Method Following the definition of a possible social structure among objects, a preliminary architecture for the implementation of SIoT is presented. Through the SIoT paradigm, the capability of humans and devices to discover, select, and use objects with their services in the IoT is augmented. Besides, a level of trustworthiness is enabled to steer the…Expand
Social Internet of Things: Architectural Approaches and Challenges
The key challenges around the software architecture of the various SIoT system described in the literature are analyzed and one of the conclusions is thatSIoT is still at an early stage of development, and therefore, SIoTs systems architecture will be concerned by this fact. Expand
