Flexible Crypto System for IoT and Cloud Service

As various IoT devices appear recently, Cloud Services such as DropBox, Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure Storage, etc are widely use for data sharing across the devices. Although, cryptographic algorithms like AES is prevalently used for data security, there is no mechanisms to allow selectively and flexibly use wider spectrum of lightweight cryptographic algorithms such as LEA, SEED, ARIA. With this, IoT devices with lower computation power and limited battery life will suffer from overly expensive workload and cryptographic operations are slower than what is enough. In this paper, we designed and implemented a CloudGate that allows client programs of those cloud services to flexibly select a cryptographic algorithms depending on the required security level. By selectively using LEA lightweight algorithms, we could achieve the cryptographic operations could be maximum 1.8 faster and more efficient than using AES.
