The increasing number of devices in the age of Internet-of-Thing (IoT) has arisen a number of problems related to security. Cryptographic processes, more precisely the signatures and the keys, increase and generate an overhead on the network resources with these huge connections. Therefore, in this paper we present a signcryption framework to address the above problems. The solution highlights the use of aggregate signcryption and certificaless approach based on bilinear pairings. The use of signcryption with aggregation and certificateless authentication reduces the time consumption, overhead and complexity. The solution is also able to solve the key staling problems. Experimental results and comparative analysis based on key parameters, memory utilization and bandwidth utilization have been measured. It confirms that the presented work is efficient for IoT infrastructure.
