All About IoT Security

  • Course Program

This course program was developed by IEEE Educational Activities with the support from IEEE Internet of Things Technical Community. As Internet of Things (IoT) devices and systems become increasingly commonplace in our interconnected and digitalized society, there will be a greater emphasis on the security of such devices and systems partly because of the data sensed, collected, disseminated, processed, and/or stored by and in these devices and systems. In addition, these devices and systems may also be targeted and abused as tools to facilitate other nefarious activities. Hence, this course program is designed to provide the audience a broad overview of IoT security, starting with malware (botnet detection and malware analysis) followed by vulnerabilities, network monitoring, setting up of testbeds and application of blockchain in IoT security.

What you will learn:

  • Examine IoT Security Technology
  • Consider how IoT botnets grow their networks
  • Discuss IoT Malware forensics
  • Demonstrate the importance of a taxonomy when designing an IoT system in terms of security
  • Understand the need for IoT testbed and IoT network traffic datasets
  • Examine the application of blockchain to IoT
