The Internet of Things (IoT) architecture is expected to evolve into a model containing various open systems, integrated environments, and platforms, which can be programmed and can provide secure services on demand. However, not much effort has been devoted towards the security of such an IoT architecture. In this paper, we present an IoT architecture that supports deploying dynamic security policies for IoT services. In this approach, IoT devices, gateways, and data are open and programmable to IoT application developers and service operators. Fine-grained security policies can be programmed and dynamically adjusted according to users' requirements, devices' capabilities and networking environments. The implementation and test results show that new security policies can be created and deployed rapidly and demonstrate the feasibility of the architecture.
