Abstract—Securing the Internet of Things (IoT): The IoT remains a relative unknown in academia despite its burgeoning financial success in the private industry highlights academia’s well-known and problematic struggle to maintain awareness of the private sector and its activities and demands. This research concluded that considering the many features offered by hardware based security implemented by microcontrollers such as PIC24F family, PIC18F ‘K42’, Arduino Mega2560R3, ARM 7/ARM 9 and others, they do not outweigh the implementation of software based security implemented in System on a Chip (SoC) boards such as the Raspberry Pi Zero ($5.00 US), Banana Pi ($9.00 US), C.H.I.P. ($9.00 US), Onion Omega2 ($7.00 US).
Index Terms—IoT, security, embedded security, Curve25519, (Deffie-Hellman), ECC
