IoT meets AI 2019 – “IoT Security” by Marc-Oliver Pahl (TUM)
At the 2019 IoT meets AI on Day 3, Marc-Oliver Pahl from TU Munich gave a keynote on “IoT Security.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) for the first time allows running algorithms in real-world environments. Examples are algorithm-managed production processes in the industry of the future (industry 4.0), or smart home settings. Both are currently emerging.
Remotely controlled machines can become a SAFETY RISK. A mal-programmed industrial robot arm can easily kill a human co-worker. Appliances such as smart door locks can become a SECURITY RISK, e.g. when enabling hackers to open the front door. Finally, the inherent processing of private data can become a PRIVACY RISK. A self-driving car can easily become an instrument for mass surveillance.
For the given reasons and examples, it is essential to secure IoT systems. This talk highlights challenges and proposes solution for an IoT that is SECURE-BY-DESIGN.
