IoT Needs Secure Messaging


Watch the Meetup Recording

Security & Privacy should be primary concerns in the design of how data flows within IoT. However, current IoT communication protocols are lacking. This talk explores how secure messaging, decoupled from the transport layer, can lead to significant wins in security, privacy & even interoperability.

Various common IoT communication protocols provide mechanisms to handle Identification, Authentication, Data Integrity, Confidentiality, and other functionality related to secure communication. However, these mechanisms are to be tightly coupled with the transport layer. IoT systems tend to have data flows that span multiple transport layer connections and often multiple transport protocols. This talk explores what would happen if we decouple the secure communication layer from the transport layer. We’ll discuss several common IoT data flow scenarios and the impact the decoupling has on their security and privacy properties.
