The Internet of Things A critique of ambient technology and the all-seeing network of RFID

March 1, 2016

The mist was skimming off the trees. You could not see the other end of Lake Jönköping in the early hours of a September morning. I was walking slowly on the running path enjoying the damp steam coming from the trees. The sun was rising, rays of light backscattering from hitting something in the middle of the lake. In a flash I saw King Arthur’s sword bursting from the perfectly calm water. It was at that precise moment that I experienced a sweet epiphany. It was very clear for a fraction of a second. I felt the scene was alive, and so was I. Progress has come to be defined as the ability to read data as data: the ability to read data as data and not noise.

Establishing Confidence in IoT Device Security: How do we get there?

whitePaper | May 14, 2021

The purpose of this draft paper is to start a conversation about what it means to have confidence in the cybersecurity of IoT devices used by individuals and organizations and the various ways of gaining that confidence. This paper describes the landscape of confidence mechanisms that are currently available for establishing the security of IoT devices in the marketplace. In preparing this paper, NIST conducted extensive research on initiatives that can help to instill confidence in IoT device security and held a series of meetings with government and industry experts to glean information on the unique aspects and challenges in this space.

Tailoring IoT platforms to the requirements of specific use cases

whitePaper | April 13, 2021

The Internet of Things has evolved in the last 10-15 years from a long-term visionary idea to our current reality, present in more and more domains of our everyday lives. Many IoT architectures and platforms are being proposed today by various academic and industrial consortia, in domains as diverse as smart manufacturing, smart homes, smart cities or smart transport, to name just a few. These different IoT platforms have many things in common, as they all rely on connecting some smart sensor and actuator devices to each other and to the Internet, providing value-added services and applications to us, human users, either directly, or in an indirect manner. However, by closely analyzing their structure and operational focus, we can observe that these IoT architectures and platforms have also special features tailored to the requirements of different use cases.

Internet of Things for Telecom Engineers

whitePaper | February 11, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) is no longer the future: it is the new reality moving telecommunications forward. The IoT enables physical objects to see, hear, think, and perform jobs by having them “talk” to each other, share information, and coordinate decisions. The number of internet-enabled objects has surpassed the Earth’s population. Today, the IoT connects everything from HVAC thermostats and smart homes to transportation, healthcare, industrial automation, and emergency response equipment. As the prevalence of IoT innovations grow, telecom leaders must embrace the opportunities, and challenges, posed by a more connected future.

Global Industry Standards for Industrial IoT

whitePaper | June 2, 2021

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a rapidly expanding world of connected objects. As IIoT systems proliferate, large amounts of data are consumed by machine learning algorithms and shared between partners, customers and others. IIoT is a technology environment in which integration and interoperability are critical capabilities and the complexity of this environment makes this difficult to achieve. Standards play a critical role in IIoT for five main reasons. First, users and vendors cannot engineer a custom interface every time components or systems need to interact. Standards can make this explosion of interfaces manageable; they are the lingua franca for interoperability. For suppliers, this eliminates needless costs related to common capabilities instead encouraging a focus on innovations that add value.
