Security and privacy in IoT—New post-doc at IOTAP

Ahmed Elmesiry recently started his post-doc at IOTAP and he will focus on privacy and security within Internet of Things applications, such as smart homes.

Ahmed, what is your research interest?

My research interests lie at the intersection of three main areas: machine learning, applied cryptography, and distributed systems. My work has broadly combined principles of the design, analysis, and implementation of security and privacy for real-world systems and future services. Over the past years, my interests have evolved to include topics in intrusion detection systems, secure e-payment systems, secure mobile agent systems, pervasive computing, and privacy enhancing technologies in a […] Continue reading

Building “Folkhemmet” with the Internet of Things

A drone that tends your garden; a bed canopy that prevents data network signals from getting through; a mattress that adjusts itself based on your body temperature – these are all “things” that can be purchased in a fictive Ikea Catalogue in, perhaps, 10–20 years.

This future-looking catalogue is part of the report “Building Folkhemmet with the Internet of Things”, which explores how Swedish standards, values and participatory design models could help make Sweden an innovation hub for IoT.

In order to get there, many obstacles need to be overcome. The authors argue, for example, that we need interfaces that […] Continue reading
