With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), communication between connected machines has become necessity. We simulate the communication of IoT by short-lived instant messaging for group communication. Group communication security requires such measures as group forward and backward secrecy and perfect forward secrecy. We satisfy these security measures by using a group controller and Attributebased Encryption (ABE) to encrypt data on update procedures. The communication overhead is outsourced to a mediating MQ Telemetry Transport broker. Thus, we decrease the costs for group joins and leaves to T(1). The number of attributes used in the system are reduced to O(log(N)), where N represents the maximum number of members. We provide an intuitive approach to fit the maximum number N = 2k members to our requirements and to increase the maximum size of members, if needed by N = 2k+1.
