Secure and Trustworthy Communications to Empower Intelligent IoT Systems: A Collaborative Perspective

#security #iot #trust #collaboration

IoT systems play critical roles in supporting diverse vertical applications by connecting heterogeneous devices, machines, and industrial processes. Any potential security risk in IoT systems could lead to catastrophic consequences and even system failure of critical infrastructures, particularly for applications relying on tight collaborations among distributed devices and facilities. While security is the cornerstone for many IoT applications, trust among entities and information privacy are becoming increasingly important. However, existing solutions often feature various distinctive weaknesses, including drastically increased time latency, communication/computation overheads, and privacy leakage, which are extremely undesirable for delay-sensitive, resource-constrained, and privacy-aware IoT communications. To overcome these challenges, this presentation will introduce a series of approaches to achieve cost-effective and reliable security and trust, providing efficient solutions for supporting a wide variety of vertical industry applications enabled by IoT.
