Study of Privacy, Accountability and Ownership in IoT

The Internet facilitates enormous opportunities to modern computing world where not only humans but also machines even tiny sensing devices can communicate and collaborate with each other. It is projected that in near future there will be over 50 billions of connected objects that will create a business of 350 billions of euros. In this landscape, an innovative Internet infrastructure referred as the Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as a promising infrastructure, which will be able to integrate information related to the real world (from objects) and the virtual world (computer applications). In simple terms, IoT scenarios require integration of several complimentary technologies, where information related to the real world and the virtual world will be retrieved, combined, processed, analysed, and distributed anywhere and anytime, providing new and exciting applications, challenges and opportunities. The objective of this project is aimed at conducting extensive research in the security and privacy issues in IoT based on collaborative research through the exchanging visits between French researchers and Indian researchers, supervision of scholars and development of software/hardware modules by their domain expertise for continuing further research in the area.

Security and Privacy Infrastructure for "Internet Of Things" Scenarios and Applications

The rapid advancement of multi-sensory mobile devices and Internet-enabled "things" equipped with sensors and ubiquitous connectivity opens scope for building smart houses, smart cities, and green planet using Web services and Internet. Internet of Things (IoT) is a technological vision aimed at building the smart societies. Security is an important concern in IoT infrastructure, where intelligent things cooperatively interact with each other using Web services and Internet. The objective of this project was to conduct research and development in security and privacy infrastructure for IoT.
