In concert with advances of wireless technologies in facilitating internet connectivity of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, mobile edge computing can provision and distribute computing resources at the cloudlets to efficiently process a high volume of IoT data. Among the IoT applications, multi-party data sharing among IoT devices, wireless access nodes and cloudlets is becoming increasingly critical, not only because the data collected by each single IoT device will often stay unmined, but also because of the security concern. As IoT applications' dependence on the cloud environment grows, the rich resources at cloudlets often become the attack targets, and the IoT data that are stored or processed using the cloud resources will be jeopardized. For the internet of important things, we have investigated how to efficiently and securely share the data among multi-party. In particular, for a group of cooperative IoT devices, by leveraging the cloud resources available at the wireless access points, a secure cache site with fast data uploading rate is chosen for each user. To minimize the overall data downloading time, the multi-party multi-path data delivery scheme is also designed such that each user can efficiently retrieve the data belonging to other parties.
