Presentation: Security of Internet of Things


Internet of Things (IoT) has huge potentialities for developing new intelligent applications in nearly every field. This is mainly due to its double ability to perform situated sensing (allowing for instance to collect information about natural phenomena, medical parameters, or user habits), and to offer them tailored services. Irrespective of the application field, such applications aim at enhancing the quality of every-day life, and will have a profound impact on the economy and society. They will also cover different aspects: personal, social, societal, medical, environmental, logistics to cite a few.

Since business processes are concerned, a high degree of reliability is needed. In the literature, the following security and privacy requirements are described:

  • Resilience to attacks: The system has to avoid single points of failure and should adjust itself to node failures.
  • Data authentication: As a principle, retrieved address and object information must be authenticated.
  • Access control: Information providers must be able to implement access control on the data provided.
  • Client privacy: Measures need to be taken that only the information provider is able to infer from observing the use of the lookup system related to a specific customer; at least, inference should be very hard to conduct.

Bezpečnosť IoT

Internet vecí je jednoznačne jednou z veľkých tém súčasnosti. V rámci tohto bloku rozoberieme z bezpečnostného hľadiska problematiku zariadení pripojených k internetu.
