Don't hesitate to make a test by running Mihini on your local computer.

How to activate security with M3DA protocol?

Firstly, you need to compile a module which is not compiled by default. After you, you must do this command:

$ make all agent_provisioning

Note: Here the following list you can define for encryption and authentication:

  • AUTHENTICATION_TYPE = hmac-md5 or hmac-sha1 or none (if you select none for authentication, you must select none for encryption)
  • ENCRYPTION_TYPE = aes-cbc-128 or aes-cbc-256 or aes-ctr-128 or aes-ctr-256 or none

1. Choose the authentication algorithm :

agent.config.server.authentication ='hmac-sha1'

2. Choose the encryption algorithm :

agent.config.server.encryption ='aes-cbc-128'

3. Do not forget to set deviceId (first):

agent.config.agent.deviceId = "tototo"

4. Generate the keys by using Registration password (shareKey) (=> Compute and store the keys)

require 'agent.provisioning'.registration_password 'xxxx'       (needs "make all agent_provisioning" to be executed before)

Usefull commands

If you want to remove the authentication:

agent.config.server.authentication = nil

To remove the encryption:

agent.config.server.encryption = nil

To change the password :

require 'agent.provisioning'.password ='xxxx'                   (needs "make all agent_provisioning" to be executed before)

To remove the password :

* Keys are stored in: /readyagent/build.default/runtime/crypto
* Remove the file: crypto.key

Note: If you do a reset factory on your device, the keys are not deleted.

Create a connection:

airvantage=require "airvantage"
