Protecting the Internet of things from cyber threat
The Internet of things (IoT) uses advanced technologies in systems architectures, communications networks, protocols, data processing and storage. Its economic stakes are considerable and its development interests all sectors of activities: consumer markets, industry, services and utilities (energy, water treatment or transport). However, in all these areas, cybersecurity is a fundamental concern. The IoT, because of its connection to the IP world, its geographical scope and its scalability, presents specific vulnerabilities. By 2016, the attack has progressed faster than defense and new threats have emerged, facilitated by the proliferation and diversity of connected objects. The conference SEE 2017 will therefore examine the specificities of the Internet of things and propose ways to build a response adapted to justify trust in the future connected objects.
Since 2013, SEE has set up two working groups within its Business Circle, bringing together government, industry and academic players with expertise in Smart Grids (SG) cybersecurity and the Internet of things (IoT). The first group published a White Paper on SG cybersecurity in the Summer of 2015, the recommendations of which were updated at Cyberweek 2016. The second group is preparing to issue a second White Paper on the Internet of Things. This White Paper provides a comprehensive overview of IoT technologies and analyzes cybersecurity issues in particular. It makes recommendations to reduce the risks associated with cyberattacks, building on the latest technical developments relevant to IoT.
