The essentiality of having a secure system is indispensable more importantly it is essential to keep that system protected from outside intrusion. The implementation of one technology along with the other is useful to strengthen the functioning of the former or latter. The severity of a breach in a system can compromise the system’s integrity preventing users from its intended use. The unison of Networking with the Internet of Things brings about the efficient working of smart systems and for a system that implements this technology a good build up of security system is essential. This paper discusses about a security mechanism implemented within Representational State Transfer (REST) architecture for a robot navigation system.
