Abstract

Secure computing is essential as environments continue to become intertwined and hyperconnected. As the Internet of Things (IoT), Web of Things (WoT), and the Internet of Everything (IoE) dominate the landscape of technological platforms, protection these complicated networks is important. The everyday person who wishes to have more devices that allow the ability to be connected needs to be aware of what threats they could be potentially exposing themselves to. Additionally, for the unknowing consumer of everyday products needs to be aware of what it means to have sensors, Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID), Bluetooth, and WiFi enabled products. This submission explores how Availability, Integrity, and Confidentiality (AIC) can be applied to IoT, WoT, and IoE with consideration for the application of these architectures in the defense sector.

Internet Of Things

IoT is a global infrastructure for information society enabling services by interconnecting physical and virtual things based on existing and evolving interoperable Information Communication Technologies (ICT) (International Telecommunication Union, 2012). Gartner has developed a figure which displays the hype cycle of emerging technologies. This hype circle shows the expectations on the y-axis where on the x-axis time is displayed [See Figure 1]. The time shown is the innovation trigger, the peak of inflated expectations, the trough of disillusionment, slope of enlightenment, and plateau of productivity (Gartner, 2014). What the figure fails to provide is anything associated with security about the technologies identified. The figure simply shows the cycle of emerging technologies with time corresponding to expectations.
