讲座人介绍

Wenjing Lou is the W. C. English Professor of Computer Science at Virginia Tech and a Fellow of the IEEE. She holds a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Florida. Her research interests cover many topics in the cybersecurity field, with her current research interest focusing on privacy protection techniques in networked information systems and cross-layer security enhancement in wireless networks.

Prof. Lou is currently on the editorial boards of IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing, ACM/IEEE Transactions on Networking, IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, and Journal of Computer Security. She is the Steering Committee Chair of IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (IEEE CNS), which is a conference series in IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) core conference portfolio and the only ComSoc conference focusing solely on cybersecurity.

讲座内容 Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging technology that has drawn a lot of attention in recent years. Things in IoT can take a wide variety of forms, from simple RFIDs attached to merchandises, smart thermostats installed in the classrooms, implantable medical devices on the patients, to video cameras on top of light poles, and automobiles with built-in sensors. The explosive deployment of IoTs has pushed the boundary of the cyber-world to be tightly intertwined with our physical world. The IoT enables the exchange of information in a variety of application scenarios, each having unique characteristics and requiring unique performance guarantees, and together they bring potentially tremendous benefits to us- home automation, environmental monitoring, health and lifestyle, smart cities, just to name a few.
Some significant risks go along with the potential benefits of the IoT. As we add devices to our cloths, bodies, homes, and environments, more personal information will be collected. Some information is deeply sensitive. As devices are more closely connected with our physical world and some are capable of taking actions, data security and device security become critically important. Last year, IoT devices have also been exploited to launch the largest DDoS attack in history to disrupt the Internet services.
A secure and trustworthy IoT is not an easy task. It demands multiple lines of defense from different layers to thwart attacks from both the physical world and cyberspace. It also requires the integration of security and privacy mechanisms into computing and networking functions. In this talk, I will introduce the network architecture and unique characteristics of IoT systems. I will then focus on unique security and privacy challenges in the IoT. Many of the security and privacy problems are very challenging and call for interdisciplinary expertise from a number of technical domains.
