Title: Security Challenges in the Internet of Things and Potential Solutions

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Thorsten Holz, Ruhr-Universität Bochem


Abstract


We are in the midst of the shift towards the Internet of Things, where more and more (legacy) devices are connected to the Internet and communicate with each other. This paradigm shift brings new security challenges and unfortunately many current security solutions are not applicable anymore, e.g., because of a lack of clear network boundaries or resource-constrained devices. In this talk, we will highlight some of the research challenges ahead and also present potential solution. We will focus on both attacks and defenses, the typical Yin and Yang of computer security.

Professor Holz will also take part in the panel session.
