Collaborative Research Title: Secure Internet of Things

The ability to connect, communicate with, and remotely manage an incalculable number of networked, automated devices via the Internet is becoming pervasive, from the factory floor to the hospital operating room to the residential basement. The transition from closed networks to enterprise IT networks to the public Internet is accelerating at an alarming pace—and justly raising alarms about security. As we become increasingly reliant on intelligent, interconnected devices in every aspect of our lives, how do we protect potentially billions of them from intrusions and interference that could compromise personal privacy or threaten public safety? These challenges call for an urgent need for efficient authentication and fine-grained access control mechanisms, requiring advanced cryptographic methods. Furthermore, an important aspect to consider when it comes to resource-constrained IoT devices is providing flexible key management protocols; which motivated researchers to develop efficient security solutions for IoT systems.
