The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a popular research topic in recent times. IoT networks enable billions of small devices to be integrated into the Internet and numerous applications ranging from automation of cities to home based health solutions for the elderly population. IoT network with numerous application areas also includes difficulties such as reliability, low power and low latency. Such low-powered Internet-based devices need to be configured with the security requirements needed to address the security problems that the Internet creates. In addition, security requirements must address such unique challenges through limited processing power and through a micro controller that consumes as little power as possible.
