With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT),businesses have to defend against new types of threat. The business ecosystem now includes the cloud computing infrastructure, mobile and fixed endpoints that open up new attack surfaces, a desire to share information with many stakeholders, and a need to take action quickly based on large quantities of collected data. It therefore becomes critical to ensure that cybersecurity threats are contained to a minimum when implementing new IoT services and solutions. The interconnectivity of people, devices, and companies raises the stakes to a new level; as computing becomes ever more mobile, everything becomes connected to the cloud,and its infrastructure is hard put to it to securely manage the billions of devices that will connect us all to the IoT.

This book shows you how to implement cybersecurity solutions, IoT design best practices, and risk mitigation methodologies to address device and infrastructure threats to IoT solutions.

In this second edition, you will go through some typical and unique vulnerabilities seen within various layers of the IoT technology stack and also learn new ways in which IT and physical threats interact. You will then explore the different engineering approaches a developer/manufacturer might take to securely design and deploy IoT devices. Furthermore, you will securely develop your own custom additions for an enterprise IoT implementation. You will also be provided with actionable guidance through setting up a cryptographic infrastructure for your IoT implementations. You will then be guided on the selection and configuration of Identity and Access Management solutions for an IoT implementation. In conclusion, you will explore cloud security architectures and security best practices for operating and managing cross-organizational, multi-domain IoT deployments.

  • Learn best practices to secure your data from the device to the cloud
  • Use systems security engineering and privacy-by-design principles to design a secure IoT ecosystem
  • A practical guide that will help you design and implement cyber security strategies for your organization
