In recent years, the Internet of Things has been widely used for academic and industrial purposes. One of the applications in the field of IoT is Home Automation Systems (HAS). Home automation systems are devices that allow homeowners to monitor and control their home from remote locations. However, smart home systems raise security and privacy concerns. In this paper, we propose a privacy-aware secure identification and authentication model. In our scheme, a middleware-layer design is adapted to build a secure and efficient intercommunication platform and provide a high protection for the users. In order to provide mutual authentication, we proposed a double verification protocol. Meanwhile, for privacy reasons, we introduce a communication model by generating fake proofs in order to hide the identity of the IoT devices. The experiments are conducted for different communication scenarios. The outcomes of experiments are promising that the proposed model can readily be implemented for home automation systems.
