Webinar on “IoT Security”(17 July,2019: Webinar)
July 17 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
TSDSI is proud to announce the 18th Knowledge Sharing Webinar under the aegis of India EU Partnership Project on “IoT Security”
IoT / M2M Ecosystem comprises of telecom service providers, M2M application service providers, Sensors, hardware OEMs, supply chain, middleware, deployment and asset management. M2M is driving an increasingly complex relationship between networks, service providers and an exploding number of devices in real time. These devices will be powered and connected by a complicated convergence of networks. Different types of applications have different needs in terms of network resources leading to requirement of different regulatory treatment to them.
IoT / M2M (Machine to Machine communication) is an emerging area for connecting devices; M2M refers to technologies that allow both wireless and wired systems to communicate with other devices of the same ability. M2M uses a device (such as a sensor or meter) to capture an event, which is relayed through a network (wireless, wired or hybrid) to an application, that translates the captured event into meaningful information. We foresee a heterogeneous architecture in future, in which there will be several devices, gateway and back end platforms will be communicating to each other using different communication modes.
As these new service providers develop new and innovative services for particular market segments, they may be unaware of the threats their service may face. In some cases, the service provider may not have developed a service that has connected to a communications network or the internet before and they may not have access to the skills and expertise to mitigate the risks posed by enabling internet connectivity within their devices. In contrast, their adversaries understand the technology and security weaknesses, quickly taking advantage if vulnerabilities are exposed.
