Unclassified Research Topic Description, including Problem Statement:
The Internet of Things (IoT) is widely hailed as the next evolution of communication. The Internet of Things concerns the communication of billions of devices, to delivery an ever-increasing set of services to consumers, to businesses and to governments. To contrast, the Internet of People is limited in the region of seven billion, being the population of our planet. This is now approaching saturation, at least in the developed world. The Internet of Things has no such limits, and while projections vary, it is expected that there will be 20-40 billion connected devices at the start of the next decade.
Applications for IoT are still in their infancy, and generally centered on consumer or consumer-to-business use cases. Today we have personal health monitors, home management systems, smart meters and vehicle telematics as the most commonly used applications. Just around the corner are traffic management systems, buildings information management, environmental sensors, and in range are smart cities, industrial control systems and fully driverless cars.
The interconnectedness of all Things raises important questions about security and resilience. For example:
There are also questions about the scope of trust. To what extent should trust functionality be global, mandated and subject to standardization? This would enable integration of systems, but potentially at the cost of agility and time-to-market.
