5GCroCo Lunchtime Webinar 5: Security Guideline for MQTT Protocol

May 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Lunchtime Webinar Nr.5 

Welcome to the 5th in a planned series of 5GCroco Lunchtime Webinars.  These webinars will address different aspects of the technical work of the 5GCroco project in detail with some time for questions and discussions on the work presented.


 Security Guideline for MQTT Protocol

Section 4.5.2 “Security Guideline for MQTT Protocol” of the recently published 5GCroCo Deliverable D3.2 on “Intermediate E2E, MEC & Positioning Architecture” describes ways to put security into the “publish/subsribe messaging protocol”, that was designed 1999 for machine to machine telemetry in low bandwidth environments for TCP/IP networks.

MQTT started as a proprietary protocol, it was released royalty free in 2010 and became OASIS standard in 2014. MQTT stands for Message Queuing Telemetry Transport and was fast becoming one of the main protocols of IOT (internet of things) deployments. MQTT v3.1.1 is in common use, the new version MQTT v5 has been approved in Jan 1018 and is currently in limited use.

The presentation shows methods to put security into MQTT v3.1.1 protocol and pinpoints the advantages and disadvantages for each case that is pictured.

As preparation we suggest reading Section 4.5.2 of 5GCroCo Deliverable D3.2 on https://5gcroco.eu/images/templates/rsvario/images/5GCroCo_D3_2.pdf
