IoT Device Security in a Zero Trust Environment

Aug 24, 2022


The mission of the Cybersecurity Assurance and Policy (CAP) Center at Morgan State University is to provide the defense and intelligence community with the knowledge, methodology, solutions, and highly skilled cybersecurity professionals to mitigate penetration and manipulation of our nation’s cyber-physical infrastructure. Internet of Things (IoT) devices permeate all areas of life and work, with unprecedented economic effects. Critical infrastructures in transportation, smart grid, manufacturing, health care, and many others depend on embedded systems for distributed control, tracking, and data collection. While protecting these systems from hacking, intrusion, and physical tampering is paramount, current solutions rely on unsustainable patchwork solutions. Transformative solutions are required to protect systems where the ubiquity of connectivity and heterogeneity of IoT devices exacerbate the attack surface. Our research focuses on the convergence of IoT, 5G, and artificial intelligence in the context of the Zero Trust networks. We will present our security-in-depth approach to provide secure and resilient operation.
