Abstract: Content dissemination in peer-to-peer mobile ad-hoc networks is subject to disruptions due to erratic link performance and intermittent connectivity. Distributed protocols such as BitTorrent are now ubiquitously used for content dissemination in wired Internet-scale networks, but are not infrastructure-less, which makes them unsuitable for MANETs. Our approach (called SISTO) is a fully distributed and torrent-based solution, with four key features: (i) freedom from any reliance on infrastructure; (ii) network and topology aware selection of information sources; (iii) robust multiple-path routing of content via a proactive peer selection technique; (iv) an integrated distributed content discovery capability, not found in other torrent systems. We have implemented SISTO in software, and evaluated its performance using emulation and realistic mobile network models derived from field measurements.We have measured significant improvements in download latency, resiliency and packet delivery compared to traditional data delivery models and conventional BitTorrent. We have implemented SISTO on both Linux and Android platforms, and integrated it with several android applications for content sharing.

Abstract: The growth of interconnected objects through Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine Communication (M2M) is no doubt inevitable. The researchers have predicted that by 2020, around fifty billion objects throughout the world will be connected with each other with the help of internetwork of smart objects. With the number of networked objects, grows the number of cyber-crime threats. Forthcoming fifth generation of mobile communication will be the converged version of all the wired and wireless networking services and technologies. The heterogeneous networking approach gives rise to various cyber threats. Design of robust cyber security solutions for such heterogeneous networks with smart devices is challenging task.

Abstract: Various applications following the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm have become a part of our everyday lives. Therefore, designing mechanisms for security, trust and privacy for this context is important. As one example, applications related to electronic surveillance and monitoring have serious issues related to privacy. Research is needed on how to design privacy preserving surveillance system consisting of networked devices. One way to implement privacy preserving electronic surveillance is to use tools for multiparty computations. In this paper, we present an innovative way of using garbling, a powerful cryptographic primitive for secure multiparty computation, to achieve privacy preserving electronic surveillance. We illustrate the power of garbling in a context of a typical surveillance scenario.We discuss the different security measures related to garbling as well as efficiency of garbling schemes. Furthermore, we suggest further scenarios in which garbling can be used to achieve privacy preservation.

Keywords: Internet of Things, privacy, electronic surveillance, garbling schemes.

Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) devices are rapidly becoming ubiquitous while IoT services are becoming pervasive. Their success has not gone unnoticed and the number of threats and attacks against IoT devices and services are on the increase as well. Cyber-attacks are not new to IoT, but as IoT will be deeply interwoven in our lives and societies, it is becoming necessary to step up and take cyber defense seriously. Hence, there is a real need to secure IoT, which has consequently resulted in a need to comprehensively understand the threats and attacks on IoT infrastructure. This paper is an attempt to classify threat types, besides analyze and characterize intruders and attacks facing IoT devices and services.

Keywords: Internet of Things, Cyber-attack, Security threats.
