Internet of Things (IoT) and Automotive Security Workshop (IASW)

Enter the nascent era of the Internet of Things (IoT), where small embedded devices loaded with sensors collect information from their surroundings, process it and relay it to remote locations for further analysis. While IoT manufacturers are aware of the security implications, security in IoT devices is either neglected or treated as an afterthought. This is often due to the short time to market (TTM) and reduction of costs driving the device's design and development process. Furthermore, concentrating on the software-based protection schemes often leaves the hardware unintendedly vulnerable, allowing for new attack vectors on the hardware and the hardware-software interface. Overall, there is a lack of security-oriented IoT design methodologies dedicated to highly-secure IoT system deployment. To solve this problem, systematic analysis using standard assessment strategies and metrics on security and privacy concerns on IoT and automotive systems becomes a necessity.

Time: May 5, 2017, 8:30am – 2:00pm

Location: The Ritz-Carlton, McLean, VA, USA [Co-located with HOST 2017]

Registration Fee: $75 (including breakfast and lunch box)
