题目: Network Health Monitoring and Treatment Against Cyber Attacks in Internet of Things (IoT)
报告人: Md Zakirul Alam Bhuiyan博士，美国福德汉姆大学（Fordham University, USA）
Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of things (devices/nodes) embedded with sensors and connectivity that enables these things to connect and exchange/upload their collected data in order to make decisions on events of interest. However, these are often interrupted when there is a lack of network health monitoring (devices being compromised, link compromised, unexpected data communication) due to cyber security attacks in the IoT networks. Thus, one of the key mechanisms underlying the IoT is the monitoring of the network health itself. Though we have tendency to upload the data for cloud computing, it is tough to deal with cloud-based network health monitoring due to real-time detection and communication cost locally. Unlike previous work, we attempt to propose LocalMain, a new scheme of local health monitoring and possible treatment in IoT networks. LocalMain combines health monitoring operations with monitoring operations of a mobile event of interest in a manner that is both energy and latency-efficient. LocalMain performs four-level local health monitoring tasks: IoT device self-anomaly monitoring, nonboring device health monitoring, monitoring of links, and monitoring of suspicious data exchange. To achieve the monitoring of the event efficiently, LocalMain conducts a prompt local treatment when one of the above issues occurs. Comprehensive evaluations via both simulations and real-world experiments are conducted to validate the effectiveness of LocalMain.
