Title: Hacking Things: Security and Privacy Challenges in Internet of Things

Abstract: Current Industrial trends aim at connecting the unconnected from the Internet of Things (IoT) to Industrial Internet. Analysts predict billions of connected cyberphysical systems, enabling new services and experiences. These trends will improve customer value through increased individualization and more efficient production by taking advantage of machine-to-machine communication and integrating production and business IT. On the flipside, these systems will be appealing targets of attacks. Attacks on IoT systems are crucial since they can have disastrous consequences in the physical world. Due to safety criticality and the vital role of emerging and envisioned personal, business, government and economic IoT systems, leaving security as an afterthought is perilous. However, currently very little efforts have been made to secure these smart devices and the network connecting them. The growing number and complexity of these systems and the scope of attacks raise new challenges and require networking, security and privacy as well as embedded systems communities to seek for practical and sustainable solutions.
