Cyber-assurance for the Internet of Things : Information Assurance for the Internet of Things
about this item
The goal of this book is to present an information assurance (IA) approach to the Internet of Things (IoT). From an information security/IA perspective, the IoT must address the delivery of authentic, accurate, secure, reliable, timely information, regardless of threat conditions, over the distributed and heterogeneous computing and communication systems. The IoT system may range from a hand-held mobile unit to a centralized high performance information processing system consisting of heterogeneous communication systems of both tactical (mobile, wireless) and fixed (wired) communications infrastructures.
The book is written by IA and IoT industry professionals and experts and is geared toward researchers, academics and graduate students who want to improve their understanding of the latest developments of IA for the IoT. IA capabilities protect and defend network availability, protect data integrity, and provide the ability to implement effective computer network defense (CND) for the IoT. IA is imperative so that its confidentiality, integrity, availability, and non-repudiation can be ensured, and that users of that IoT data can be properly identified and authenticated. Since these IoT networks present unique IA challenges, there will be a heavy reliance on the secure communication of urgent and time-sensitive information over these IoT networks. This book will discuss the IA needs of the IoT environment, highlighting key IA IoT issues and identifying the associated security implications so that the general readers can readily grasp the core ideas in this area of research.
