Computer Security And The Internet Of Things

0 0

Computers are now integrating into everyday objects, from medical devices to children's toys. This integration of technology brings many benefits. Without the appropriate checks and balances, however, these emerging technologies also have the potential to compromise our digital and physical security and privacy. This talk will explore case studies in the design and analysis of computer systems for several types of everyday objects, including wireless medical devices, children's toys, and automobiles. I will discuss the discovery of security risks with leading examples of these technologies, the challenges to securing these technologies and the ecosystem leading to their vulnerabilities, and new directions for security and privacy. For example, I will discuss efforts (in collaboration with UC San Diego) to compromise the computers in an automobile from a thousand miles away, and the implications and consequences of this and other works. I will also discuss directions for mitigating computer security and privacy risks, including both technical directions and education.
