“IoT and Smart Services”

Maha Saadeh


The Internet of Things (IoT) has been introduced recently as the future of the Internet that provides different services in wide range of applications such as smart monitoring, navigation and route planning, healthcare, etc. It connects billions of objects which are different in their capabilities, size, and functionalities. Recently human lifestyle is influenced by the development of different IoT applications. These applications support different humans’ daily activities such as transportation decisions, traffic and healthcare monitoring, route planning, elderly and children supervision, and many more. In order to motivate people to use different IoT applications and be part of the new connected word, it is important to provide some security services such as authentication. People would not be convenient to share and exchange their data and personal information unless efficient protection schemes are used to prevent any malicious behavior. Therefore, efficient security and authentication provisioning are necessary for the development and deployment of IoT applications. The diverse nature of numerous IoT objects creates several challenges that should be considered in the development of authentication schemes such as heterogeneity, mobility, scalability, and constrained devices.

In this seminar I will talk about the Internet of thing; components, importance and challenges. In addition to that, I will present recent studies that we published related to IoT smart services mainly, objects’ authentication and smart transportation.
