Spring 2018 Quarterly Chapter Meeting
Date & Time
Tuesday, April 17th 6–8:30pm
Host and Location
RSA Conference Michael Aisenberg, MITRE Ulf Lindqvist, SRI International
Michael will provide a federal and state IOT regulatory action update, including those related to unmaned vehicles and medical devices.
The Internet of Things (IoT), where all kinds of devices – from public infrastructure to wearables – are being equipped with “smarts” and are being wirelessly connected, holds great promise to improve health, safety, and productivity in our society. However, the success of IoT is directly dependent on our ability to provide the right level of security, because the potential consequences of successful attacks could impact human lives and safety and cause death and destruction, directly or indirectly. We need new methods to automatically and continuously assess the level of security of IoT systems and networks, because if we cannot tell how changes to configurations or devices impact overall security, how will we be able to improve security with any degree of confidence? Also, we need to be able to design and select the most effective security mechanisms for large numbers of heterogeneous and often resource-limited IoT devices. This talk describes such challenges and opportunities, based on results from research conducted in the IoT Security and Privacy Center at SRI International.
