Security has been an important issue in the smart home applications. In home networks with distributed architectures that consist of a broad range of wired or wireless devices, it is likely that unauthorized access to some restricted data or devices may occur. Therefore, it becomes important to consider issues of security, authentication and access control. The authentication and authorization of users in smart environments are the key factors in the security of home networks. User authentication has been traditionally based on PIN, password, key, smart card or biometrics.
