About this event

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the major application areas in the coming fifth-generation (5G) wireless broadband networks. There is a growing belief that the IoT represents the start of the next digital revolution, where everyday objects are connected to a network in order to share their data.

The UK government published a report in 2014, titled “The Internet of Things: making the most of the Second Digital Revolution” The report shows the need for research to ensure that appropriate security, trust, ethics and privacy are designed and implemented from the beginning.  Intelligent Transport Systems is one example of IoT services over 5G, where everything is very large scale (hundreds of millions of cars/smart phones, plus other vehicles); also insider attacks are easy with the broadcasting of safety messages!!

The speaker will reveal the security and privacy issues and possible solutions.


Dr Haitham Cruickshank, Senior Lecturer at the Institute for Communication Systems (ICS), University of Surrey
