Abstract: Internet of things is now everywhere and even if people are aware of it or not, it is part of our everyday life. For something that is so much in pace with our life, iot collects a lot of information about our day today life, which in case of a data leak or hijacking could lead to catastrophic effects in the society. Still iot devices are not manufactured keeping in mind the security factor. This paper dives into the problem of spoofing attacks dealt by iot devices and comes up with an authentication mechanism, which uses variants of elliptic curve cryptography to protect against such said attacks without exhausting the devices in case of computational power and storage area. The experimentation clearly revealed the strength of the scheme to mitigate spoofing attacks on the iot home networks.
