Abstract: More and more devices are connected to the internet today. However security solutions are insufficient to well secure all these things. IoT devices are limited in terms of processing, storage and energy. So using classical cryptography solutions to secure IoT communications is not the best choice. In a previous work we proposed a new security approach for IoT communications system. Our proposed architecture used multi-agent systems to secure smart home environment. As generalisation, in this paper we present a generic approach touching on securing different IoT applications using multi-agent systems and KQML language. We get inspiration from the cross compilation concept to secure IoT communications. So the main goal of this paper is to clear up the proposed idea. In addition we perform a detailed explanation of the security process to secure the communication between groups of IoT devices in different environment.
