Sharing User IoT Devices in the Cloud
Internet of Things (IoT) is the set of technologies that can interconnect anything, from daily life objects to more sophisticated networked devices. The IoT paradigm is constantly increasing the number of devices owned by end-users. Following the social networks paradigm, IoT-centric social networks would allow sharing of devices between users that would provide useful information captured by sensor devices or giving ways to make remote actions on user devices. This paper proposes an IoT centric social device network based on a Cloud computing model which provides a virtual execution environment thanks to its decentralized nature, high reliability and accessibility from anywhere and at any time. The paper describes an approach that allows easily reusing highly distributed IoT resources by building services on top of them. Applications are built by composing those services and deploying into service platforms distributed and hosted in the Cloud that grants secure access to the data shared by these devices in compliance.
