Description

This subject provides the fundamental knowledge of Internet of Things (IoT) applications, including basic components such as IoT devices, low-powered networking and middleware solutions, and the relevant security and privacy issues regarding these components. Furthermore, students gain an understanding of why traditional cyber security tools and technologies are not suitable for IoT applications, and they learn a set of practical security tools and technologies useful for building secured and trustworthy IoT applications. Students gain fundamental knowledge of secured IoT applications such as bush fire monitoring systems, secured home automation systems, and intelligent and automated vehicular transportation systems. In addition, this subject aims to teach students, through industry-driven projects, to build secure IoT applications using a simulation environment on Contiki (an open-source operating system for IoT). The project derives from real-world applications like smart home, smart office, smart health, smart agriculture, etc. Through the project, students understand the importance of securing IoT devices for a trustworthy environment.
