On security and privacy in IoT environments

IoT systems generate massive volumes of data from a multitude of applications and sensors. Among the top barriers for realising the vision of IoT is enforcing security and guarding privacy in these systems.

Andreas Jacobsson’s conference talk from Øredev’s IoT Conference 2014 outlines some of the major challenges and opportunities related to privacy and security in IoT-based ecosystems. See video embedded below, or here on Vimeo.

The talk in short
Enforcing security and guarding privacy in cyber-physical systems that generate massive volumes of diverse, heterogeneous, complex, and distributed data from a multitude of applications and sensors have been identified as among the top barriers for realising the vision of Internet-of-Things (IoT). In this context of highly connected digital ecosystems, understanding the risks related to the use and potential misuse of information about customers, partners, and end-users, as well as forming methods for integrating security-enhancing measures in system design, is not straightforward and thus requires substantial investigation. The conference talk will outline some of the major challenges and opportunities related to privacy and security in IoT-based ecosystems.

At IOTAP, Jacobsson leads the Intelligent Support for Privacy Management in Smart Homes project.
