In today’s timeline Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the fast-emerging and versatile technology. They are readily available for access from any part of the world, and they play a crucial role in combining existing home appliance and the internet. The challenge faced in this technology is ensuring the access of IoT devices over the internet using safe and secure procedures. Numerous threats can cause harm to an IoT device or the environment hosting it. In this paper, the aspect of secure access of IoT device over an infrastructure across the internet is focused. An application is designed by following the principles of Federated identity management (FIM) approach for secure access of any IoT devices over a network. After careful research of numerous ideas and published works, we have designed and implemented an application that uses JSON Web Token (JWT) for authentication and showcases greater time efficiency and exerts less computation stress on the IoT devices. An experiment has been performed to compare this with existing research and algorithm. Thus, ensuring faster access to IoT devices over the internet.
