Abstract: Internet of Things(IoT) is playing a pivotal role in our daily life as well as in various fields like Health, agriculture, industries etc. In the go, the data in the various IoT applications will be easily available to the physical dominion and thus the process of ensuringthe security of the data will be a major concern. For the extensive implementation of the numerous applications of IoT , the data security is a critical component. In our work, we have developed an encryption technique to secure the data of IoT. With the help of Merkle-Hellman encryption the data collected from the various IoT devices are first of all encrypted and then the secret message is generated with the help of Elliptic Curve Cryptography.
Keywords: Elliptic curve cryptography, Merkle-Hellman encryption.
