    The internet of things comes into our daily life. It connected lots of resource-constrained devices, denoted as smart device, in an Internet-like structure. Considering the computing burden, the CoAP protocol is developed for serving the resource-constrained device and maps to HTTP for integration with existing web. In this paper, an access-control protocol will be introduced. The protocol is designed for IoT(Internet of Things) home scenario. Like the most IoT we can see, the IoT home scenario contains lots smart devices which collect some private information from us. To protect those data, an access-control protocol is needed. The protocol is deployed into Contiki OS and evaluated using the powertrace and some other tools. The results shows the protocol we designed takes a little more memory usage than an OAuth based authorisation protocol but smaller power consumption and more suitable for small scale IoT environment.
