Security in the edge computing environment: Challenges and Opportunities

Tuesday July 17, 2018 - 9.30-10.30


The ubiquity of the Internet of Things brings with it new applications and infrastructural challenges. Edge computing is increasingly used to reduce latency and provide real time capabilities in this environment. However, IoTs and edge computing pose a unique challenge for security and privacy due to the sheer scale as well as the limited computational resources available. In this talk we discuss some of the research challenges and opportunities towards ensuring security and privacy in this environment.
