DDoS Attack: A Wake-Up Call for IoT

Presented by

Professor Ahmed Banafa, SJSU College of Engineering, IoT Expert

About this talk

Welcome to the world of Internet of Things wherein a glut of devices are connected to the internet which emanates massive amounts of data. Analysis and use of this data will have real positive impact on our lives. But we have many hoops to jump before we can claim that crown starting with a huge number of devices lacking unified platform with serious issues of security standards threatening the very progress of IoT. The concept of IoT introduces a wide range of new security risks and challenges to IoT devices, platforms and operating systems, communications, and even the systems to which they're connected. New security technologies will be required to protect IoT devices and platforms from both information attacks and physical tampering, to encrypt their communications, and to address new challenges such as impersonating "things" or denial-of-sleep attacks that drain batteries, to denial-of-service attack. But IoT security will be complicated by the fact that many "things" use simple processors and operating systems that may not support sophisticated security approaches. Join this webcast for a review of what this month's DDoS attacks on Dyn mean for the world of IoT, connected devices, and the networks and infrastructures supporting them.
