Leuven.Inc Visionary Seminar: Is it possible to build a safe and confidential “Internet of Everything”?

19 March 2015 16:30 - 19 March 2015 20:15

The Internet evolves lightning fast. We have just started implementing the ‘Internet of Things (IoT)’, and on the horizon is already an ‘Internet of Everything (IoE)’. A network that will connect people, processes, data and things, and that is expected to have over 50 billion interconnected nodes by 2020. Nodes that will generate data; the ‘big data’ that will help steer our society.

But with all the enthusiasm surrounding the IoE, there is surprisingly little attention for the security, privacy and vulnerability in this extremely complex system. A security and privacy that is required for an efficient and valuable network, and that is also required to embrace the changes and opportunities of the IoE.

To shed more light on this issue, we have brought together a number of experts on the IoE and data security. We start the evening with a short introduction on the evolution of the Internet of Everything. Next, we discuss if it is possible to build security and privacy into the system architecture of IoE applications. We also look at the security of the hard- and software components of the IoE, and how security will impact the energy expenditure of processors and sensors. The question arises if the extra resources that are needed will not be a showstopper for the IoE, and if there are efficient solutions. Last, we will look at connected cars and smart energy meters, two examples of IoE application with which we already have some experience.

If you are involved in the development of future technology, if you are interested in data security and privacy issues, or if you want to know about the latest ideas and research concerning the IoE, then this seminar is for you.
