We invite you to Dr. Kapil Singh (IBM, New York) talk “Decentralized Ecosystems for IoT Security and Lifecycle Management”.
The seminar will take place online on 26th October (Tuesday) at 5.30 PM.
Please join via https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85842147879?pwd=NWsxVnBac3padDA0U2wvSndsMnNUdz09 (meeting ID: 858 4214 7879, passcode: 920817).
The exponential growth of connected IoT devices controlling critical pieces of infrastructure poses new problems in security and lifecycle management. This rapid evolution of the IoT landscape with devices ranging from smart homes to smart automobiles poses new challenges for device lifecycle and security management: large density of inter-connected devices, heterogeneity of devices and control models, and a complexity of the trust domains involved in the IoT ecosystem. Our work develops a novel architecture for secure device lifecycle management using a decentralized management and control overlay network based on blockchain. This coupled with new device capabilities such as software and hardware based TPMs provides an efficient end-to-end security and management solution for IoT deployment.
