Book Description

The internet is making our daily life as digital as possible and this new era is called the Internet of Everything (IoE). Edge computing is an emerging data analytics concept to address the challenges associated with IoE. More specifically, edge computing facilitates data analysis at the edge of the network instead of interacting with cloud-based servers. Therefore, more and more devices need to be added in remote locations without any substantial monitoring strategy. The increased connectivity and devices used for edge computing will create more room for cyber criminals to exploit the system’s vulnerabilities. Ensuring cyber security at the edge should not be an afterthought or a huge challenge. The devices used for edge computing are not designed with traditional IT hardware protocols. There are diverse use cases in the context of edge computing and Internet of Things (IoT) in remote locations. However, the cyber security configuration and software updates are often overlooked when it is most needed to fight cyber-crime and ensure data privacy. Therefore, the threat landscape in the context of edge computing becomes wider and far more challenging. There is a clear need of collaborative work throughout the entire value chain of the network. In this context, this book will address the cyber security challenges associated with edge computing, which will provide a bigger picture on the concepts, techniques, applications, and open research directions in this area. In addition, the book will serve as a single source of reference for acquiring the knowledge on the technology, process and people involved in the next generation computing and security. It will be a valuable aid for researchers, higher level students and professionals working in the area.
