Internet of Things

 

The advancement of pervasive and ubiquitous computing devices embedded into everyday objects has given rise to the Internet-of-Things (IoT). It is estimated that by the year 2020 about 30-50 million sensor and actuator devices will be connected to the Internet.  This includes a wide variety of applications such as wearable devices, home automation, smart cities/factories, health care, and automotive employments.

IoT devices are typically low-powered, battery enabled devices, that do not offer the computational resources for cryptographic-heavy security solutions. As IoT advances, we must address significant challenges such as large-scale data aggregation, end-user privacy, device security, and manufacturer’s intellectual property protection.
