IoE Privacy & Security

  • TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, May 15, 2014 TIME: 17:00-18:00 LOCATION: ALPSEE

Security and Identity Challenges for the Internet of Everything

The Internet of Things (IoT) concerns the connection of physical devices (cars, thermostats, smartphones, home lighting, tide sensors, smart meters, etc) to the Internet. There are more devices connected to the Internet than people on the planet, and the prediction is that there will be 50 billion IoT devices by 2020.

The IoT brings with it many security challenges, and this session will explore these challenges as well as looking at some emerging solutions. Of course these challenges fall into existing security and identity challenges but are exacerbated and modified by the specific aspects of the IoT. This session will concentrate on those aspects.

For example, standard approaches for security and identity, such as PKI, may not be appropriate or suitable for memory and CPU constrained devices. Even when the device can handle asymmetric encryption, the key distribution may be a significant issue.

The session will cover identity, confidentiality, denial of service, privacy and other aspects and specifically how those are different in the IoT space.

This session is aimed at professionals who understand identity and security issues and wish to understand how those concepts apply in the IoT space. It will also be relevant to IoT specialists looking to understand security issues.
