PLATFORM TECHNOLOGIES & APPLICATIONS : Smart Nation - IOT Security

Smart Cities, SECURED Nations
(Concurrent Track)

Intelligent devices are anticipated to be deployed widely in our smart nation or other smart cities. These intelligent devices, known widely as Internet-of-Things, when not adequately protected can be attacked through the hardware, the wireless network, the operating systems and other devices or systems they are connected to. In mild cases, it would be just damages at the device level, while in serious cases it could cripple infrastructures or even endanger human safety. In this session, we will share some of these security challenges and also platforms/technologies to address them.
