Internet of things widens the scope of communication by connecting the physical objects to the Internet. These physical objects are vulnerable to various malicious activities, thus strong security features are required in IoT devices. Low power resource constrained-IoT devices limit the use of computational complex algorithm. In this paper, a lightweight authentication scheme has been proposed for fog-assisted IoT network to authenticate IoT devices at low computation cost. It uses three-way handshake with challenge response mechanism to verify the authenticity of the participating device. The performance is evaluated by using IFogSim tool kit and MATLAB, which shows that the proposed scheme is authenticating the user devices at low computational cost and storage utilization. It takes less handshake duration and average response time between the authenticating devices and the fog devices to improve the quality of service.
