Security in large-scale IoT networks
The Internet-of-Things (IoT) refers to a collection of devices with embedded computation and connectivity capabilities that collect data from the environment they interact with and share such data with other devices and Internet services.
Whilst the benefits of the IoT technology are significant in many different sectors, this technology also brings several cybersecurity challenges that need to be addressed. These challenges are, in some cases, regardless IoT technology in particular, whereas others are specific to this technology.
In this talk, we will revisit some of these key challenges and discuss potential solutions. Some notable examples will include ensuring unique identity of devices and the complexities when manufacturing and deploying millions of devices across the globe; conducting security monitoring of their behaviour and what it means in terms of real-time detection and response; providing high security assurance to both software, firmware and hardware components in a diverse supply chain ecosystem; or managing obsolescence, vulnerabilities and patching with resource-constrained devices that have a lifespan of many years.
