Abstract:With the number of inter-connected devices, expected to be almost 30 billion by 2030, the IoT technologies already became a part from everyday life, various areas like public health, smart cars, smart grids, smart cities, etc. Therefore, the companies started to implement and improve the Digital (DT) Twin technology. It is not widely understood and secured, that is why we are going to provide current state of the art for the authentication protocols in the IoT and the Digital Twins relationship. We investigate whether the DT and IoT devices communicate efficiently and securely. This is done by doing extensive literature review of what are the IoT authentication schemes we currently have. Additionally, we aim to deliver good insight on the DT history and its current state, and how it can be deployed in IoT platform. Moreover, we prepared a simulation of a real scenario to show how DTs can be used with real-time data provided from real IoT devices and they authenticate. Lastly, we performed multiple tests with various authentication options, that the simulation platform provides, and compare them to find the one with the best performance. The tests are performed on two different IoT boards - Raspberry Pi and Arduino.
