Abstract:The Internet of Things (IoT), with its numerous systems of interconnected devices gathering and analysing data about the world, is seeing adaptation in increasingly many areas of society, including smart homes, remote healthcare and autonomous industry. As these new areas of application are bringing with them new risks associated with illegal access and malicious behaviour, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure the security of IoT systems. While a variety of security challenges and solutions are present, one of the core features in ensuring the security of IoT systems is authentication. Traditionally, single-factor authentication has been used to secure computer systems. However, with the ability of a single factor to ensure security decreasing, multi-factor authentication (MFA) is emerging as the new standard. As IoT systems face challenges not present in traditional systems, such as using devices with limited power and memory, and a variety of IoT-specific schemes have been proposed in the literature, there is a need for an overview of MFA schemes applicable in IoT systems. In this paper, individual analyses of MFA schemes for IoT, as well as a comparative table of all the schemes, are presented. These contain the schemes’ core features, strengths and weaknesses, and are brought together to form a comparative analysis focused on providing people wanting to implement MFA for IoT with the necessary understanding to make a well-informed decision.
