<span lang="EN-US">Peer-to-Peer-like Sensor Networks based on XMPP<o:p></o:p></span></h1>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">One of the problems with the Semantic Web, or the Web of Things, is the problem of security and distributed transactions using the HTTP protocol. In the traditional web, the web servers are centralized, and security is
 managed on the same web servers. For the Web of Things, each sensor has the possibility to become a small web server. How do you manage security in a similar distributed environment? HTTP does not have any good solutions by itself, except it supports the use
 of directory services (which are designed for use within intranets and not on the global Internet). The same happens for the Semantic Web or with SPARQL. Another problem is how to bypass firewalls. Normally, sensors are installed in protected environments,
 behind firewalls. This This prohibits access to the sensor directly from outside of the firewall, unless holes are punched in the firewall.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US"><o:p> </o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">To resolve this, most solutions store all information centrally. This later permits the management of security to that centralized location. But, by doing this, you lose the local control and the real-time communication
 with the devices, something that prohibits many different types of applications, and limits the scalability of the implemented solutions. Furthermore, one has to store much more data than what would otherwise be necessary, simply to solve the problem of latency
 (since there is no connection that permits communication in real-time).<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US"><o:p> </o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">Another manner to solve this problem, is to use another transport for HTTP than TCP, for example XMPP. This protocol (standardized by the IETF, like HTTP) gives all participants a global identity, permits authorization
 of messages and, because of this, also distributed transactions, real-time communication, it bypasses firewalls in a secure manner, and is scalable to many billions of devices (today, already billions of devices are using it).<o:p></o:p></span></p>
