Designing Security Solutions for Edge, Cloud, and IoT

  • Online

This course not only analyzes the new challenges in edge computing, but also presents two novel edge-based security solutions for IoT applications. First, EdgeSec designs a novel security service that is deployed at the Edge layer to enhance the security of IoT systems. Second, the secure and efficient smart data collection framework enables secure data readings from smart grid devices based on a two-phase authentication protocol.

What you will learn:

  • Describe security challenges in Edge Computing
  • Explain Edge-based security design
  • Discuss solutions for security challenges

This course is part of the following course program:
