IoT: Internet of things

Embark on to the next evolution of internet. Connection to devices and creating a human-centric communication with technology.

The Internet of Things Evolution

The next step of the Internet that creates a worldwide infrastructure interconnecting machines and humans. As the Internet became public in the early 1990s, the first wave of its exploitation and deployment was mainly focused on the impact to everyday services and applications that changed the known models for financial transactions, shopping, news feeding and information sharing. It was a revolution that digitized a wide range of services as we knew them, from banking and retail shopping to face-to-face communication and government services. The first two decades of the Internet revolution focused strongly on consumer services and businesses, but human-centric.

The current state

New business models appeared for banking, for online shopping, video communication, etc. for consumers. Business to business models and the cloud have impacted businesses significantly, wiping out large sectors of industry that did not adjust to the fast pace of the revolution. The impact on the economies has been tremendous. Now, more than two decades later, we witness and experience a new way of life because of the Internet’s reach to our homes and work environments.

IoT course overview

The IoT Landscape

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a well-known term. Beyond the hype, IoT has emerged as an important technology with applications in many fields. IoT has roots in several earlier technologies: pervasive information systems, sensor networks, and embedded computing. The term IoT system more accurately describes the use of this technology than does Internet of Things.
  • What Is IoT?
  • Applications
  • Architectures
  • Wireless Networks
  • Devices
  • Security and Privacy
  • Event-Driven Systems

IoT System Architectures

In this module, we will understand the architectures for IoT systems. We will have a look at typical components used for networks, databases, etc. Several protocols are used for data services in IoT systems. Communication protocols may not provide sufficient abstraction for many applications. IoT systems need multi-hop, end-to-end communication.
  • Protocols Concepts
  • IoT-Oriented Protocols
  • Databases
  • Time Bases
  • Security

IoT Devices

The design space for IoT devices is very different from that for mobile or cloud processors. Both mobile and cloud systems require very large chips. IoT devices should operate at extremely low power levels but often not operate continuously. They must integrate processors, memory and storage, communication, and sensors.
  • The IoT Device Design Space
  • Cost of Ownership and Power Consumption
  • Cost per Transistor and Chip Size
  • Duty Cycle and Power Consumption
  • Platform Design

Event-Driven System Analysis

This module describes modeling and analysis methods for Internet of Things (IoT) system design. IoT systems require new types of analysis because events do not necessarily result in immediate actions or maintain their order relative to other events.
  • IoT Network Model
  • IoT Event Analysis

Industrial Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) has already brought a revolution to our understanding of applications in a wide range of human activity. This trend is expected to increase in the near future, as the potential economic impact of IoT is expected to be exponential.
  • Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
  • IIoT Architecture
  • Basic Technologies
  • Applications and Challenges

Security and Safety

The Internet of Things (IoT), including the Industrial Internet (IIoT), refers not only to the connectivity of systems and devices but to the related applications and services that provide monitoring and control of complex systems and services.
  • Systems Security
  • Network Security
  • Generic Application Security
  • Application Process Security and Safety
  • Reliable-and-Secure-by-Design IoT Applications
  • Run-Time Monitoring
  • The ARMET Approach
  • Privacy and Dependability

Security Testing IoT Systems

Systems need to be evaluated for conformance to specifications and requirements, including security, and IoT systems are no exception. Verification and validation techniques are one option to ensure that systems are built according to specifications and requirements.
  • Fuzz Testing for Security
  • White-Box Fuzzing
  • Fuzzing Industrial Control Network Systems
  • Fuzzing Modbus
  • The Modbus Protocol
