Day 4

IoT Workshop

The Internet will soon connect us to the physical world through personal health monitors, proximity networks, smart homes, smart cars, and automation networks. These new networks provide tremendous opportunity, but also bring tremendous risks. Today, hackers steal credit card numbers; tomorrow, they will be able to control your home, steal your personal medical data, and track you as you walk down the street. Existing approaches to secure computing systems are insufficient for these new cyber-physical applications, as they have very different trust models and network architectures, bridging pervasive local area networks, personal mobile devices, server storage, and web-based applications.


This workshop is organized by Prof. Philip Levis will present research by the Secure Internet of Things Project, a collaboration between Stanford University, UC Berkeley, and the University of Michigan. It will consist of talks by faculty and students on embedded computing, hardware, security, operating systems, applications, networking, and new design technologies to help the Maker movement.
