Internet of Things (IoT) security deals with safeguarding the devices and communications of IoT systems, by implementing protective measures and avoiding procedures which can lead to intrusions and attacks. However, security was never the prime focus during the development of the IoT, hence vendors have sold IoT solutions without thorough preventive measures. The idea of incorporating networking appliances in IoT systems is relatively new, and hence IoT security has not always been considered in the product design. To improve security, an IoT device that needs to be directly accessible over the Internet should be segmented into its own network, and have general network access restricted. The network segment should be monitored to identify potential anomalous traffic, and action should be taken if a problem arises. This has generated an altogether new area of research, which seeks possible solutions for securing the devices, and communication amongst them. Internet of Things Security: Fundamentals, Techniques and Applications provides a comprehensive overview of the overall scenario of IoT Security whilst highlighting recent research and applications in the field. Technical topics discussed in the book include: Machine-to-Machine CommunicationsIoT ArchitectureIdentity of ThingsBlockchainParametric CryptosystemSoftware and Cloud Components

Master powerful techniques and approaches for securing IoT systems of all kinds–current and emerging Internet of Things (IoT) technology adoption is accelerating, but IoT presents complex new security challenges. Fortunately, IoT standards and standardized architectures are emerging to help technical professionals systematically harden their IoT environments. In Orchestrating and Automating Security for the Internet of Things, three Cisco experts show how to safeguard current and future IoT systems by delivering security through new NFV and SDN architectures and related IoT security standards. The authors first review the current state of IoT networks and architectures, identifying key security risks associated with nonstandardized early deployments and showing how early adopters have attempted to respond. Next, they introduce more mature architectures built around NFV and SDN. You’ll discover why these lend themselves well to IoT and IoT security, and master advanced approaches for protecting them. Finally, the authors preview future approaches to improving IoT security and present real-world use case examples. This is an indispensable resource for all technical and security professionals, business security and risk managers, and consultants who are responsible for systems that incorporate or utilize IoT devices, or expect to be responsible for them. · Understand the challenges involved in securing current IoT networks and architectures · Master IoT security fundamentals, standards, and modern best practices · Systematically plan for IoT security · Leverage Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to harden IoT networks · Deploy the advanced IoT platform, and use MANO to manage and orchestrate virtualized network functions · Implement platform security services including identity, authentication, authorization, and accounting · Detect threats and protect data in IoT environments · Secure IoT in the context of remote access and VPNs · Safeguard the IoT platform itself · Explore use cases ranging from smart cities and advanced energy systems to the connected car · Preview evolving concepts that will shape the future of IoT security

By 2020, experts forecast that up to 28 billion devices will be connected to the Internet with only one third of them being computers, smartphones and tablets. The remaining two thirds will be other "devices" - sensors, terminals, household appliances, thermostats, televisions, automobiles, production machinery, urban infrastructure and many other "things" - which traditionally have not been Internet enabled. This "Internet of Things" (IoT) represents a remarkable transformation of the way in which our world will soon interact. Much like the World Wide Web connected computers to networks, and the next evolution connected people to the Internet and other people, IoT looks poised to interconnect devices, people, environments, virtual objects and machines in ways that only science fiction writers could have imagined. In a nutshell the Internet of Things (IoT) is the convergence of connecting people, things, data and processes is transforming our life, business and everything in between. Secure and Smart Internet of Things explores many aspects of the Internet of Things and explain many of the completed principles of IoT and the new advances in IoT including using Fog Computing , AI and Blockchain technology.
