The Internet Of Things (IoT) is an architecture in which billions of devices with computing capacities and communication interfaces are connected to the internet and perform collaborative tasks. In this context security is a major issue. In this paper, the authors focus on access control services to logical (OPENID) and physical (electronic key delivery) resources, which are deployed in laptops, tablets, mobiles or embedded systems such as electronic locks. In previous works they introduced a TLS stack with a small memory footprint of about 20 KB, which works in most of the secure microcontrollers of the market such as smartcards (defined by the ISO 7816 standards).
