报告摘要:Internet-of-Things (IoT) plays an important role as enabler in smart nation applications, especially in the value creation process from big data. As is expected, security has naturally become one main concern in the deployment of IoT devices. Due to the unique features and requirements of IoT, including limited compute resources, power, bandwidth and massive number of deployed IoT objects, and its loosely coupled networked architecture, new strategies and techniques are needed to provide feasible and practical solutions to IoT security. While substantial research efforts have been focusing on the lightweight communication protocols and cryptography/compression engines, one fundamental science question being asked is on the notion of Identity in the Internet-of-Things (or IDoT). In this talk, well first discuss the concept of smart nation systems and the underlying key enabling technologies. The role of IoT Devices in the Digital Economy across Industry Sectors will be discussed. Well then explore the concept of IDoT and analyze why it is so unique as compared to the concept of Identity of Users (IDoU) in traditional networks and systems - typically attribute-based, multi-factor authentication. We will conclude this talk with open research issues in this direction.
