Visit by Debdeep Mukhopadhyay

We are hosting Prof. Debdeep Mukhopadhyay on Oct 12 at SUTD. He will give a public talk with the title Break one link and the whole chain falls apart!: Embedding Security in Things to Cloud.

Abstract:
With the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) the need and challenges of security have increased manifold. Starting from the miniature devices, which are often resource constrained, to the pervasive omni-present cloud, all avenues for a potential attack need to be mitigated. In this talk, we discuss the research activities in this direction, starting from physical security of the “things” in an IoT framework to developing dedicated cryptographic techniques for delegating data in the cloud. The talk also summarizes the research activities at the Secured Embedded Architecture Laboratory (SEAL), IIT Kharagpur, India.
