IOTA, Block Chain & HyperLedger for distributed IoT
Summary:Internet of Things are evolving into a heterogenous distributed system thanks to ever-increasing importance and flexibility of edge IoT system. This gradual move from Cloud based IoT to edge based IoT is enforcing several new security requirements- as edge based IoT is a distributed system of local database and local computation and can’t be effectively managed by a central management system. Therefore there is a growing demand for distributed management for distributed edge database and computation system. Security essentials required for distributed management of a IoT network, can’t be addressed by conventional security measures. This requires Distributer Ledger technology (DLT) to be adopted to manage distributed IoT system.
One of the principle use case for managing distributed IoT system has to do with prevention of fraud tempering in IoT based regulation system. In a Smart City Situation, Air pollution or water pollution monitoring system must be fraud-prof at several levels and must be handled as a distributed management system. In smart transaction between the cars and energy grids, IOTA is emerging as only viable technology.
This course will introduce essential of distributed IoT system and why and how IOTA/ BlockChain are becoming integral part for decentralized IoT system security.
Target Audience:Security Experts, Engineers and Researchers- working in emerging issues of IoT security.
Duration: 1 ( 10 hours / day)-Total 10 hours.
Overview:Estimates for Internet of Things or IoT market value are massive, since by definition the IoT is an integrated and diffused layer of devices, sensors, and computing power that overlays entire consumer, business-to-business, and government industries. The IoT will account for an increasingly huge number of connections: 12 B by 2019 and 100B+ by 2025. In the consumer space, many products and services have already crossed over into the IoT, including kitchen and home appliances, parking, RFID, lighting and heating products, and a number of applications in Industrial Internet.

The underlying technologies of IoT are nothing new as M2M communication existed since the birth of Internet. However what changed in last couple of years is the emergence of number of inexpensive wireless technologies added by overwhelming adaptation of smart phones and Tablet in every home. Explosive growth of mobile devices led to present demand of IoT.
As DLT become more understood in recent years and its capability to solve enterprise business use cases become evident, technologist have been exploring Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) ( such as Blockchain or IOTA) to solve use cases that have been daunting industries for years. Unlike existing technologies, one of the key features of DLT is its unparalleled capability to provide, traceability, accountability and immutable records that can be accessed at any point in time. One application area of interest for DLT is securing heterogenous networks. The technology has to be secured, immutable and offer real time transaction.
Course Objective:1. Give introduction of migration of centralized cloud based IoT to decentralized edge based IoT ( with example of smart car charging, P2P energy grids)
