Internet of Things (Iot)

Overview

Advances in mobile and pervasive computing, social network technologies, and the exponential growth in Internet applications and services will lead to the development of the next generation of Internet services that that we refer to as the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT will connect not only computers and mobile devices, but it will also interconnect smart buildings, homes, and cities, as well as electrical grids, gas, and water networks, automotive and airplanes, etc. However, with the use of IoT, we are experiencing big challenges to secure and protect such advanced information services due to the significant increase in the amount of exploited systems; due to the increased attack surface. However, one of the major motivations for building ubiquitous connectivity to legacy infrastructures is the ability to build smart infrastructures to share resources and services. In this project, we will leverage the autonomic management and cyber security techniques being developed at the University of Arizona Center for Cloud and Autonomic Computing (CAC), to design a novel IoT architecture that is secure and resilient against cyber-attacks.


The architecture shown can be used for any IoT aplication, from a Smart Home, to the Smart Grig and Smert Healthcare. The idea is to collect all the information from the IoT end nodes (wearables, wireless sensor nertoworks, mobile devices, etc) and securely put this information in a secure repository in the cloud. The information obtained from the IoT end nodes is managed by our secure gateway where behavior analysis techniques are used to inspect the behavior of end nodes and to grant access to the systems locally or from the cloud.
