This paper deals with the principal aspects emerging from the application of trust techniques to the IoT domains with respect to the particular viewpoint of an IoT environment. We consider intelligent agents technology to add social behavior to the community of the smart objects, and we analyze the fundamental role of the concepts of trust and reputation in this perspective. Also, we analyze the existing architectures for IoT and explain how to integrate IoT with fog/edge computing. Besides discussing the main proposals present in the literature, the key contribution of this paper consists of providing a comparative study of the main current architectures for modeling trust in IoT environments. In this setting, we propose a comparison based on the important characteristics of the IoT layer and the architecture type. Such an analysis allows us to highlight both advantages and limitations of each approach, and to discuss the emerging research challenges.

Abstract

This paper deals with the principal aspects emerging from the application of trust techniques to the IoT domains with respect to the particular viewpoint of an IoT environment. We consider intelligent agents technology to add social behavior to the community of the smart objects, and we analyze the fundamental role of the concepts of trust and reputation in this perspective. Also, we analyze the existing architectures for IoT and explain how to integrate IoT with fog/edge computing. Besides discussing the main proposals present in the literature, the key contribution of this paper consists of providing a comparative study of the main current architectures for modeling trust in IoT environments. In this setting, we propose a comparison based on the important characteristics of the IoT layer and the architecture type. Such an analysis allows us to highlight both advantages and limitations of each approach, and to discuss the emerging research challenges.
