Nowadays, the combination between Cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT) is pursuing new levels of efficiency in delivering services, representing a tempting business opportunity for IT operators of increasing their revenues. However, security is considered as one of the major factors that slows down the rapid and large scale adoption and deployment of both the IoT and Cloud computing. In this paper, considering such an IoT Cloud scenario, we present an architectural model and several use cases that allow different types of users to access IoT devices.
