As the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) expands into ever more areas, issues with security become critical.  Some of the greatest benefits to be gained come from connecting systems and sensors on the factory floor to corporate systems and multiple sites. The downside is that this leaves these systems, which are critical to the business, open to intrusions, potentially negating the benefits. There are two areas of vulnerability. The first is disruption of operations. The second is the theft of data. In this course, we will look at some of the issues involved and potential solutions to both problems. These include some standard solutions to protect infrastructure as well as solutions that can be embedded in the protocol stack of the devices themselves.

September 21 – Day 5 – Solutions and Future Directions

Standards can be used to help mitigate safety and security concerns. Many are developed precisely for this purpose. In this talk, we look at the types of standards involved and discuss their impact on the IIoT in terms of the protocol stack, system architecture, and implementations. Finally, we...

September 20 – Day 4 – Data Theft and Attacks

At the heart of any enterprise today is data. IIoT systems produce very valuable data. As is well known, attacks on infrastructure are on the increase and pose a number of problems. In this class, we will look at the problems associated with theft of that data as well as attacks that might disrupt...

September 19 – Day 3 – Security Concerns

In this lecture, we will consider security in the industrial setting. Because these are basically control systems, we will approach security from the point of view of those systems. This can include physical security as well as communications and other electronic devices.

September 18 – Day 2 – Safety Considerations

Security goes with safety in the IIoT. If the systems are not secure, then safety cannot be ensured. Security is not a sufficient condition for safety, but a necessary one. In this lecture, we will look at a number of safety considerations and their impact in security concerns.

September 17 – Day 1 - IIoT Landscape

In this class, we will detail the environment under consideration. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a subset of the Internet of Things (IoT) with very specific requirements. In this environment, safety is a big concern. In addition, there are generally a number of communications types...
