The device authentication module belongs to the security subsystem of OpenHarmony. It manages the entire lifecycle of trust relationships between devices, including establishment, maintenance, use, and cancellation, and implements authentication and secure session key exchange between trusted devices. It provides basic capabilities for trusted interconnections between devices that run OpenHarmony.

The device authentication module provides the following capabilities:

  • Device trust relationship management: manages the establishment, maintenance, and cancellation of trust relationships between devices in a unified manner; allows the isolation and controllable sharing of trust relationships created by different services.
  • Device trust relationship authentication: authenticates trust relationships between devices, allows trusted devices to exchange secure session keys with each other, and sets up connections between trusted devices through the DSoftBus.

The device authentication module consists of three submodules: device group management, device group authentication, and account-irrelevant P2P device authentication. The following figure shows the logical architecture of the device authentication module.

Figure 1 Architecture of the device authentication module

In the architecture:

  • Device group management: allows you to manage the trust relationships between the local device and other devices created by different services in a unified manner, create trust relationships between devices using the provided APIs, create an account-irrelevant device group, add trusted devices to the group, and create a trust relationship between isolated devices.
  • Device group authentication: allows devices to authenticate the trust relationships that have been established between them and exchange session keys.
  • Account-irrelevant P2P device authentication: allows two devices to establish a trust relationship based on a shared secret, and exchange a session key for secure communication based on the trusted relationship.

Available APIs

The device group management sub-module abstracts trust relationships established by different services between devices into trust groups and provides unified APIs for creating, deleting, and querying groups. The device group authentication sub-module provides trusted device authentication and end-to-end session key exchange based on the trust groups.
