About

The IoT: Building Arduino-Based Projects course will take you on a journey to become an expert in the use of IoT by developing a set of projects and finally guide you onto securing your IoT environment.

The course begins with exploring the popular HTTP, UPnP, CoAP, MQTT, and XMPP protocols. In the first module Learning Internet of Things, you will learn how protocols and patterns can put limitations on network topology and how they affect the direction of communication and the use of firewalls. This module gives you a practical overview of the existing protocols, communication patterns, architectures, and security issues important to Internet of Things.

The second module, Internet of Things with Arduino Blueprints provides you up to eight projects that will allow devices to communicate with each other, access information over the Internet, store and retrieve data, and interact with users―creating smart, pervasive, and always-connected environments. You can use these projects as blueprints for many other IoT projects and put them to good use.

It has becomes critical to ensure that cyber security threats are contained to a minimum when implementing new IoT services and solutions. Thus, our third module, Practical Internet of Things Security provides a set of guidelines to architect and deploy a secure IoT in your Enterprise. The aim is to showcase how the IoT is implemented in early adopting industries and describe how lessons can be learned and shared across diverse industries to support a secure IoT.

Features
  • Learn the capabilities and differences between popular protocols and communication patterns and how they can be used, and should not be used, to create secure and interoperable services and things
  • Build Internet-based Arduino devices to make your home feel more secure
  • Learn to protect cyber-physical systems and utilize forensic data analysis to beat vulnerabilities in your IoT ecosystem
  • Learn best practices to secure your data from device to the cloud
