Abstract

Cyber-Assurance theory, application and embedded security for the Internet of Things (IoT)/Fog Computing architectures is based on theoretical aspects and studies of practical applications. The objective of this minitrack is to increase the visibility of current research and emergent trends in the area of Cyber-Assurance for IoT and Fog computing architectures. Cyber-Assurance is the justified confidence that networked systems are adequately secure to meet operational needs, even in the presence of attacks, failures, accidents and unexpected events. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity which enable these objects to collect and exchange data. Fog computing refers to extending cloud computing to the edge of an enterprise's network. Cyber-assurance means that IoT/Fog Computing smart internet connected devices (ICD) and networks provide the opportunity of automatically securing themselves against cyber-attacks while addressing cybersecurity concerns.
