[FIOT rec] Prabhakaran Kasinathan (Siemens) – Keynote “Using Blockchain technology for Cybersecurity”
On Tuesday, Nov 30, 2021, at 1 pm CET, Prabhakaran Kasinathan, Research Scientist, Cybersecurity Technology, Siemens AG, Munich, Germany gave a keynote entitled “Using Blockchain technology for Cybersecurity” at the 4th Future-IoT.org Ph.D. school that is under the motto “IoT meets Cyber and Security”.
Securing distributed and collaborative business processes that involve Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) devices or services in a cross-organizational context is a challenging task. It becomes even more difficult when the involved parties do not trust each other completely. This keynote presents some real-world industrial use cases where there is a need to enforce cross-organizational business processes without a trusted third party and how state-of-the-art technologies and research addresses the problem.

About the Future-IoT.org PhD schools
The Future-IoT.org Ph.D. school series takes place once a year since 2018. The previous editions are “IoT meets Industry (2018, St Malo)”, “IoT meets AI (2019, Munich)”, “IoT meets Security (2020 in the cyberspace)“.
This year’s edition has the title “IoT meets Cyber and Security“. Software drives the critical infrastructures around us like water or energy supply, communication, transportation, banking, production, or health care. This year’s edition focuses on different aspects of software cyberspace, including cybersecurity.
The series is organized by IMT Atlantique and the Technical University of Munich as a flagship event of the German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future. The French-German series is kindly supported by the Deutsch-Französische Hochschule / Université Franco-Allemande.
Future-IoT.org connects academia and industry. Therefore, the series is in collaboration with leading industry partners from France and Germany. The Future IoT summer school offers an exciting mix of lectures, hands-on tutorials, and hackathon challenges. There is also a lot of room for getting to know each other, networking, and exploring our hosting city!

The German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future and the chair Cyber CNI in collaboration with the OCIF team, the IRISA lab, the IMT, the IMT Foundation, the Pôle d’Excellence Cyber, the Brittany region, and many more organize the 4th Future-IoT Ph.D. school – this time a winter school. The school is under the motto “IoT meets Cyber”. So it is about software and algorithms in the Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems.
The 4th Future-IoT winter school takes place from Nov 29-Dec 3, 2021 in Rennes, France. The event will be hybrid, on-site, via zoom, and via YouTube and LinkedIn. Please inform your friends and check the program at https://school.future-iot.org/. We are looking forward to welcoming you!
This year’s edition focuses on different aspects of software cyberspace – the algorithms that move the things around us -, including cybersecurity. Software drives the critical infrastructures around us, such as water and energy supply, communication, transportation, banking, manufacturing, and health services.
The 4th Future-IoT school takes place in Rennes, only 1,5h by train from Paris. The city and the added value of the on-site participation with the hackathon with people on-site, much better networking, and last but not least the opportunity to get to know the city make this the best option. At the same time, you can also interactively participate and network via zoom, or you just follow and interact over YouTube and LinkedIn.
Please inform your friends about the event and participate yourself! On-site for the full experience, via Zoom for half of the experience, and via YouTube and LinkedIn for the keynotes only.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Rennes!
