Abstract

More and more devices are being connected to the Internet as a result of the Internet of Things’ (IoT) rapid expan- sion. Most of these devices are considered resource-constrained devices with limited CPU, memory, and power resources. On the other hand, protecting all of these devices from potential cyberattacks is equally essential. For such devices, the traditional cryptographic schemes are often too heavy. Therefore, signcryp- tion was invented. Signcryption performs signing and encryption at the same time and is theoretically more efficient compared to traditional schemes. However, to our knowledge, no work has been done comparing the performance of signcryption schemes with traditional cryptographic schemes in a practical manner. This research will implement multiple signcryption and tradi- tional cryptographic schemes on a resource-constrained device and measure computational costs, power draw & communication overhead. These measurements will be analysed and used to create a comprehensive comparison. The research will add to the scientific body of knowledge of comparisons between signcryption and traditional cryptographic schemes.
