The future Internet of Things (IoT) may be based on the existing and established Internet Protocol (IP). Many IoT application scenarios will handle sensitive data. However, as security requirements for storage and communication are addressed separately, work such as key management or cryptographic processing is duplicated. In this paper we present a framework that allows us to combine secure storage and secure communication in the IP-based IoT. We show how data can be stored securely such that it can be delivered securely upon request without further cryptographic processing. Our prototype implementation shows that combined secure storage and communication can reduce the security-related processing on nodes by up to 71% and energy consumption by up to 32.1%.
