Recently, the concept of IoT (Internet of Things) has gained tremendous attention in both research and industry. In the near future IoT will affect all industries and everyone’s daily life. In particular, it will be part of every home turning our houses into smart houses, in which we have multiple users with complex social relationships between them using the same smart devices. This requires usable authentication and sophisticated access control specification mechanisms that are currently lacking. In this research, we introduce an extended generalized role based access control (EGRBAC) model for smart home IoT. EGRBAC is a dynamic, fine grained, and suitable for constrained home environment model. Moreover, we demonstrate how EGRBAC can be enforced in smart homes. We further provide a security analysis for EGRBAC model. Finally, we provide a corresponding proof-of-concept implementation for three use cases in Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT platform, followed by a conclusion and future enhancements section.
