Abstract: Challenges presented by ever increasing volumes of smart objects are huge in terms of security and privacy of data generated out of these objects. These challenges range from the usage scenario with other objects and dedicated servers which act as a middleman among various networks such as internet and wireless sensor network. In this paper, attempt has been made to highlight a simple use case of a composite server in a XEN-based virtualised system. Security threats like sniffing and spoofing are isolated and analysed with respect to a novel key transfer method between host and guest operating system in XEN-based virtualised system. In addition, secure and trust model to cater the said security threats like sniffing and spoofing is also presented. The performance of the proposed system in terms of CPU usage and network bandwidth is also shown.

Keywords: smart objects; security; privacy; XEN; IOT; sensor.
