Smart cars. Smart security cameras. Smart lightbulbs. Everything around you is connected. It's hard to argue IoT's popularity and pervasiveness—or its value. Unfortunately, it’s also impossible to ignore that many of these connected devices have security vulnerabilities.
At this year’s UNITED, Craig Smith, Research Director of Transportation research, and Deral Heiland, Research Director of IoT research, will man our very own IoT Lab, with two presentations a day and plenty of devices for you to get your hands on.
