The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to- computer interaction. A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a biochip transponder, an automobile that has built-in sensors to alert the driver when tire pressure is low — or any other natural or man-made object that can be assigned an IP address and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network.
Referring to at least three research papers, Student is required to study an IoT architecture and recommend an OSI security architecture by answering the following tasks:
Task.A: summarize and describe any IoT architecture.
(Hint: you should include a diagram of IoT Architecture then identify and describe the architecture layers in details)
Task.B: Analyze and describe the security concerns (attacks) on IoT architecture.
(Hint: identify the possible attacks on each IoT architecture layers, describe the scenario of each attack and its effect on IoT system.)
Task.C: recommend security services and mechanisms to countermeasure the attacks. Provide a detailed description for each service and mechanism. Then, provide a clear diagram of your IoT security architecture.
(Hint: identify the security service that could detect/prevent the attack in each layer, then describe mechanisms to implement the identified services.)
