Machine-To-Machine (M2M) technology has emerged as a rapidly developing technology for large-scale networking of devices without dependence on human interaction. The new form of machine interconnectivity integrates with cloud computing infrastructure through the Internet however, M2M communication poses unique security challenges as the Internet grow steadily and rapidly. The large number connected devices enable attackers to compromise the network nodes through automated and self-propagating malwares such as Distributed Denial of Service attacks (DDoS). This paper presents a cooperative architecture for M2M system security to enable M2M nodes to interface with intelligent devices sensing real-world conditions and control physical devices.
