RIoT – A Foundation for Trust in the Internet of Things

MSR-TR-2016-18 |

RIoT (Robust Internet-of-Things) is an architecture for providing foundational trust services to computing devices. The trust services include device identity, sealing, attestation, and data integrity. The term “Robust” is used because the minimal trusted computing base is tiny, and because RIoT capabilities can remotely re-establish trust in devices that have been compromised by malware. The term IoT is used because these services can be provided at low cost on even the tiniest of devices.
