The year 2018 saw increased adoption of consumer and enterprise IoT. These IoT products were faced with multiple IoT attack variants: Wicked, OMG Mirai, ADB.Miner, DoubleDoor, Hide 'N Seek and even a Mirai-Variant IoT Botnet used to target the Financial Sector. The major attack in 2018 was VPNFilter, infecting over a half a million devices from a wide range of known vendors. In 2016, an attack of similar magnitude by the infamous Mirai, was major news and caused havoc on the Internet. Today, while such an attack is relatively big, it is not uncommon or unexpected.
Alon Levin and Brian Russell will examine why many of the new attacks are more advanced compared to what we've seen previously. They will explore today's new attack types and their impacts on emerging IoT technologies. They will discuss the impact of these new sophisticated attack techniques on emerging technologies including autonomous transportation, smart buildings, and collaborative robotics.
