This report addresses some innovative technologies that are included in the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm. The basic idea of IoT is to enable enhanced environments like buildings, campuses or
cities, sharing resources and creating new exciting services. It is made possible by the interaction among heterogeneous devices that cooperate to reach common goals.
Obviously, these opportunities cause new security and management challenges. Ensuring effective access control and data protection can be an important step towards cybersecurity of IoT systems.
This thesis will examine how to express the requirements as policies and how to enforce them in a distributed IoT context, by using RedHat Drools as a policy system.
