Internet of Things: towards the development of a smart yet secure world

Abstract:

The Internet of Things (IoT) revolution is turning everyday objects into smart ones. Such smart things are able to interact among themselves and with the environment they are placed in order to fulfill a given goal. As a result, a global network infrastructure is being created, supporting the provisioning of innovative and customized services to individuals and businesses in different application domains. The resulting system may include an extremely large number of heterogeneous devices, moving up integration and scalability challenges to be addressed. Moreover, the increasing diffusion of IoT enabled services raises several risks associated to security and privacy, which include: data confidentiality and authentication, access control, trust among users and smart things, and policy enforcement. Traditional security countermeasures cannot be directly applied to IoT technologies due to the different standards and communication stacks involved.

The talk focuses on the security challenges arising in IoT enviroments, where the notion of interconnected smart objects has a primary role. To cope with the emerged issues, a flexible and cross-domain middleware platform must be set up with the final goal of managing the huge amount of IoT data and promptly dealing with security threats in the IoT dynamic environment. New challenges, related to the strictly resource constraints and limited dimension of the devices, are further presented by the revolutionary Internet of Nano-Things (IoNT) concept, which goes beyond the already diffused “smart things” towards real application of “smart nano-things”. The talk discusses more broadly how security solutions can contribute to the design and develop robust IoT and IoNT neworks, and suggests exciting open areas for future research
