DEVICE SECURITY IN INTERNET OF
th – 11th, 2021
About the Short Term Programme
With the rapid advancements in wireless technologies and embedded computing, more and
more physical devices are getting connected to the Internet. The collection of such things is called
Internet of Things (IoT). These devices in the IoT network are constrained in terms of energy,
processing and storage and thus, the traditional computer security solutions are not applicable to
these devices/systems. But, the devices are susceptible to all such attacks that are possible on a
typical computer system/network. In fact the impact of such an attack increases multifold
because of the criticality of IoT applications like a smart grid, or an industrial control system.
More recently, the IoT network has been used to target regular computer systems, enterprises
and the Internet, for example the MIRAI botnet. The constraints posed by these devices, the
ubiquitous presence of the devices, and the ease of setting-up and use of such applications makes
them prone to security vulnerabilities. Therefore, there is a need to understand the security
requirements of IoT devices, attack surfaces and attack vectors on these devices, different types
of attacks, countermeasures, etc., need to be understood to develop security solutions for these
networks. This workshop aims to provide a basic understanding of all the above aspects of
device security in IoT. It will provide a comprehensive understanding on the security
requirements of IoT devices that will help faculty/research-students/master’s and bachelor’s
students to also pursue application development and research in this direction.
