Hardware security for Internet of Things

Prof. E. Tlelo CuautleMercoledì, 8 maggio09:00 – 13:00

Nowadays, one can find new mathematical models of systems suitable for cryptographic applications, like chaotic systems. Those systems have been implemented with different kinds of embedded systems like micro controllers, arduino, raspberry Pi, graphical processing units and field-programmable gate arrays. These implementations can be connected to the protocols for Internet of Things to develop engineering applications oriented to provide security of the data being transmitted. The chaotic systems can be connected using MQTT, which is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/”Internet of Things” connectivity protocol. This course will review applications for Internet of Things, and MQTT that was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. Using embedded systems implementations of chaotic systems, the course will show their suitability for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium. In the link http://mqtt.org, one can review applications of MQTT in sensors communicating to a broker via satellite link, over occasional dial-up connections with healthcare providers, and in a range of home automation and small device scenarios. Finally, the course will review implementations of chaotic systems with integrated circuit technology in order to highlight that using MQTT it is also ideal for mobile applications because of its small size and low power requirements.Organizzatore: PhD Program in Information Engineering
