The perception layer of the IOT contained large sum of environmental data and personal information. Therefore, a strict definition of data access was of great importance for information security and privacy protection of the IOT. Based on the traditional access control model, the concept of attribute was introduced and a proposal of attribute-based access control was proposed. In this proposal, the principal access authority was determined according to the attribute of subject, object, the permission and the environment. The attributed-based access control was superior for its characteristics of strong flexibility, relatively simple control and strong expansibility. It was suitable to the dynamic and large-scale environment and was conducive to solving the problems of access control for the perception layer of the IOT.

Key words: the Internet of things, perception layer, access control, attribute-based, information security, privacy protection
