Keynote: IoT Security: The Gathering Storm

Prof. Andrew Martin
University of Oxford, UK


The Internet of Things (IoT) has begun to touch the lives of many already, and we are reaping benefits in convenience and economic value. Much has been invested in IoT security - and yet examples of insecure IoT devices and configurations are reported almost daily. Relatively few of these reports have come from tangible examples of loss or disruption by malice so far. Is this the calm before the storm? Will the threats be contained, or will they overwhelm the IoT venture? We will consider some of the possible future scenarios, and the possible professional responses to these. It is clear that some profound improvement is needed: but is effort best focused on engineering, design, law, regulation, consumer awareness, or all of these? We will ask what can realistically be achieved, and whether that will be enough?


Andrew Martin is a Professor of Systems Security and Director of Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security at the Department of Computer Science, University of Oxford. Prof. Martin undertakes research and teaching in the area of Systems Security, in the University of Oxford. He was instrumental in setting up the University's Cyber Security Network and helps to lead it, heading Oxford's EPSRC/GCHQ-recognised Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research. He directs the Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security, which admits 16 students each year for inter-disciplinary education and research. His recent research focus has been on the technologies of Trusted Computing, exploring how they can be applied in large-scale distributed systems, particularly cloud computing, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things. He has published extensively in this area, hosting several related international events in Oxford and speaking on the subject all over the world.
