High Assurance Software-Defined IoT Security

This poster describes a solution for the secure use of IoT devices in the DoD by moving part of the security enforcement to the network.

Software Engineering Institute



The DoD is reluctant to use commodity IoT devices, especially in tactical systems, because of untrusted supply chains and a growing amount of reported vulnerabilities in these devices. This research proposes a solution that moves part of security enforcement to the network to enable the integration of IoT devices into DoD systems, even if the IoT devices are not fully trusted or configurable, by creating an IoT security infrastructure that is provably resilient to a collection of prescribed threats.
