Title: Engineering Secure Embedded Systems for the (I)IoT
Location: CSIE R101
Speaker: Dominik Merli, Augsburg Technical University of Applied Sciences
Host: Prof. Hsu-Chun Hsiao
With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the increased connectivity of smart devices that rely on an embedded computer system at their core, the need for affordable yet effective security measures is higher than ever. This lecture takes a look at the multitude of risks and challenges IoT devices have to face and gives an overview of available protection measures. Based on the specific example of industrial control devices, it will demonstrate how applied research can contribute to an enhanced digital robustness of embedded systems.
Dominik Merli is a professor for IT security at the Augsburg Technical University of Applied Sciences, with more than a decade of experience in security engineering research and the implementation of practical protection measures. His research on embedded systems' security for industrial, automotive, and semiconductor companies led to his PhD at the Technical University of Munich, after which he worked on security innovations for industrial products at Siemens before entering the education field. Currently, Dominik is working on his book "Engineering Secure Devices" that will be released in the middle of 2024 at No Starch Press: https://nostarch.com/engineering-secure-devices
