About this book

This book provides a comprehensive survey of the security and privacy research advancements in Internet of Things (IoT). The book lays the context for the discussion by introducing a system model for IoT. Since IoT is very varied and has been introduced in many different contexts, the system model introduced plays a crucial role in integrating the concepts into a coherent framework. After the system model, the book introduces the vulnerable features of the IoT. By providing a comprehensive discussion of the vulnerable features, the book highlights the problem areas of IoT that should be studied concerning security and privacy. Using the vulnerable features as a motivation, the book presents a vast survey of existing security and privacy approaches for IoT. The survey is a good way for the reader to pick up interesting directions of research that have already been explored and also hints at directions that could take additional investigation. Finally, the book presents four case studies that provide a detailed view of how some of the security and privacy concerns are addressed in specific problem areas.

Reviews

“This book gives a well-organized survey on the security challenges and approaches in IoT. The contents include the system model, risk analysis, security mechanisms, and policy. Moreover, the authors also provide case studies of typical IoT applications such as vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), eHealth systems, and smart grids. … This is a very good book for beginners in the area of IoT security. It is also a useful comprehensive study for IoT users, engineers, and managers.” (Zheng Gong, Computing Reviews, March, 2017)
