    The Internet of Things (IoT), with its technological advancements and massive innovations, is building the idea of inter-connectivity among everyday life objects. With an explosive growth in the number of Internet-connected devices, the implications of the idea of IoT on enterprises, individuals, and society are huge. IoT is getting attention from both academia and industry due to its powerful real-time applications that raise demands to understand the entire spectrum of the field. However, due to increasing security issues, safeguarding the IoT ecosystem has become an important concern. With devices and information becoming more exposed and leading to increased attack possibilities, adequate security measures are required to leverage the benefits of this emerging concept.

    Internet of Things Security: Principles, Applications, Attacks, and Countermeasures is an extensive source that aims at establishing an understanding of the core concepts of IoT among its readers and the challenges and corresponding countermeasures in the field.

    Key features:

    • Containment of theoretical aspects, as well as recent empirical findings associated with the underlying technologies
    • Exploration of various challenges and trade-offs associated with the field and approaches to ensure security, privacy, safety, and trust across its key elements
    • Vision of exciting areas for future research in the field to enhance the overall productivity

    This book is suitable for industrial professionals and practitioners, researchers, faculty members, and students across universities who aim to carry out research and development in the field of IoT security.
