AbstractWith the rapidproliferation of pervasive electronic devices in our lives, the internet ofthings (IoT) has become a reality and its influence on our day to dayactivities is set to further increase with a projected 125 Billion connecteddevices by 2030. However, this poses serious security and privacy issues as wewill no longer have direct control over with whom and what our devicescommunicate. Counterfeit, hacked, or cloned devices acting on a network are asignificant threat. In addition, IoT devices are often low-cost in area,low-power and typically are restricted in both memory and computing power.
This talk will outlinethe challenges in addressing security for resource-constrained IoT devices and discussthe opportunities offered by research solutions proposed at the Centre forSecure Information Technologies (CSIT), Queen’s University Belfast, inproviding effective security for IoT devices. The talk will detail our researchin Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs), Hardware Trojan detection, Side-channelanalysis and post-quantum cryptography.
