Title: DISTRIBUTED AUTHENTICATION WITH THRESHOLDS IN IOT DEVICES
Abstract:
Managing authentication of a child device includes receiving, by a host device, sensor data from a child device, deriving simplified authentication data from the sensor data based on a capability of the child device, storing the simplified authentication data in an authentication profile for the child device, and transmitting the simplified authentication data to the child device, wherein the simplified authentication data is sufficient to allow the child device to authenticate a user without the host device.
