IEEE The emergence of the mobile Internet of Things (IoT) has made our lives smarter, relying on its various mobile IoT devices and services provided. However, with the explosively emerging mobile IoT services, malicious attackers can access them in an unauthorized way. In this paper, we designed an Efficient Anonymous User Authentication (E-AUA) protocol between the users and servers based on multi-server architectures, which contain multiple servers to address the problem of network congestion in mobile IoT. Furthermore, the E-AUA protocol was designed with a dual messages mechanism with strong anti-attack ability, lower communication and computation costs. Comparing with the state of the art protocols, our E-AUA protocol reduced both communication and computation costs. We also provided a security analysis to demonstrate that our E-AUA protocol is secure and meets a variety of security requirements in a motivated mobile IoT scenario.
