In this paper, we present a basic system for controlling IoT devices in remote environments with the following requirements: (1) in a situation where an operation center broadcasts information to IoT devices, e.g., wireless environment, only the designated devices can identify operations sent from the center; (2) the devices can detect manipulation of the broadcast information and hence prevents maliciously generated operations from being executed. We formalize a model of the basic system and its essential requirements and propose anonymous broadcast authentication (ABA) as its core cryptographic primitive. We formally define the syntax and security notions for ABA and show provably-secure ABA constructions.
