    This book describes how to architect and design Internet of Things (loT) solutions that provide end-to-end security and privacy at scale. It is unique in its detailed coverage of threat analysis, protocol analysis, secure design principles, intelligent loT's impact on privacy, and the effect of usability on security. The book also unveils the impact of digital currency and the dark web on the loT-security economy. It's both informative and entertaining.

    "Filled with practical and relevant examples based on years of experience ... with lively discussions and storytelling related to loT security design flaws and architectural issues."— Dr. James F. Ransome, Senior Director of Security Development Lifecycle (SOL) Engineering, Intel

    'There is an absolute treasure trove of information within this book that will benefit anyone, not just the engineering community. This book has earned a permanent spot on my office bookshelf."— Erv Comer, Fellow of Engineering, Office of Chief Architect Zebra Technologies
