1. Book Abstract:
The Internet of Things (IoTs) allow human beings and environmental objects to be seamlessly interconnected anytime and anywhere. The core technologies that advance the IoTs are sensor /sensor networks, RFIDs, wireless communications, and Internet. IoTs can be used to reach any mobile devices, reach and track smart objects, and make our surroundings become "smart" by knowing what we want and act accordingly with minimum human interventions. IoTs can achieve smart home and anywhere medical care, as well as smart city.
Security and privacy are big challenges with the progress of IoT products. This is because any attack to the sensors or RFID tags could mislead the IoT monitoring system. For example, the IoT needs to manage the electricity, water, and gas uses via real-time sensor data collection. An adversary may cut off the supply of those utilities while in the same time injecting falsified sensor data.
In this book, we will cover the critical models, algorithms, and implementations in security and privacy designs of IoTs. Especially, we will cover the following topics: (1) the attack models of IoTs; (2) the security designs in sensors and devices that are linked into IoTs; (3) new IoT network protocols for security; (4) IoT back-end security issues; (5) privacy preservation schemes; and (6) current IoT security products.


2. Targeted Audiences
This book will attract many readers' attentions. Especially, the IoT engineers in IT industry can use this book to understand the security design principles and methodologies. And many researchers can learn the latest development trend in IoT security schemes. College students can use this book as a good reference for further research in this important field.
