The Internet of Things (IOT) is presently a fast catching paradigm in which the everyday objects are manufactured with essential capabilities such sensing, networking and processing. These capabilities enable them to communicate with one another and with other devices and services over the Internet to complete some objective. One of the most important issues is security. When devices are given the freedom to talk to each other, then there are immense possibilities of misuse. In this paper, we propose a secure communication approach for device-to-device communication. It is an Identity-based encryption approach which includes revocation of keys if misuse is detected. The proposed method takes into consideration the high probability of misuse and hence malicious devices are identified and eliminated. This paper presents the design of the proposed approach along with a first level implementation using Java and MsAccess.
