Internet of Things is nowadays growing faster than ever before. Operators are planning or already creating dedicated networks for this type of devices. There is a need to create dedicated solutions for this type of network, especially solutions related to information security. In this article we present a mechanism of security-aware routing, which takes into account the evaluation of trust in devices and packet flows. We use trust relationships between flows and network nodes to create secure SDN paths, not ignoring also QoS and energy criteria. The system uses SDN infrastructure, enriched with Cognitive Packet Networks (CPN) mechanisms. Routing decisions are made by Random Neural Networks, trained with data fetched with Cognitive Packets. The proposed network architecture, implementing the security-by-design concept, was designed and is being implemented within the SerIoT project to demonstrate secure networks for the Internet of Things (IoT).
