Description : By 2020, experts forecast that up to 28 billion devices will be connected to the Internet with only one third of them being computers, smartphones and tablets. The remaining two thirds will be other "devices"--sensors, terminals, household appliances, thermostats, televisions, automobiles, production machinery, urban infrastructure and many other "things"--which traditionally have not been Internet enabled. This "Internet of Things" (IoT) represents a remarkable transformation of the way in which our world will soon interact. Much like the World Wide Web connected computers to networks, and the next evolution connected people to the Internet and other people, IoT looks poised to interconnect devices, people, environments, virtual objects and machines in ways that only science fiction writers could have imagined. In a nutshell, the Internet of Things (IoT) is the convergence of connecting people, things, data and processes. It is transforming our life, business and everything in between. Secure and Smart Internet of Things explores many aspects of the Internet of Things and explains many of the completed principles of IoT and the new advances in IoT including the use of Fog Computing, AI, and Blockchain technology. The topics discussed in the book include: - Internet of Things (IoT) - Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) - Fog Computing - Artificial Intelligence - Blockchain Technology - Network Security - Zero-Trust Model - Data Analytics - Digital Transformation - DDoS - Smart Devices
Description : A guided tour through the Internet of Things, a networked world of connected devices, objects, and people that is changing the way we live and work.

Description : The development of connected, communicating objects is showing no signs of slowing down. With an increasing number of objects available on the market, the evolution of the Internet of Things is leading to more and more fields being explored via information and communication sciences. This book analyzes the ecosystem of the Internet of Things by retracing the historical and technological context of the Internet's evolution from traditional to dynamic, social and semantic, and then towards this ecosystem of connected objects. The evolution of concepts surrounding the Internet of Things is explored via real-life examples of connected objects; both those used for specific functions and for more general everyday objects. Numerous issues associated with these new technological and digital transformations in a "hyperconnected" world, as well as the impact of the massive influx of connected objects, are discussed. The crucial questions of potential intrusion into the private lives of users as well that of security are then studied.
Description : As more and more devices become interconnected through the Internet of Things (IoT), there is an even greater need for this book,which explains the technology, the internetworking, and applications that are making IoT an everyday reality. The book begins with a discussion of IoT "ecosystems" and the technology that enables them, which includes: Wireless Infrastructure and Service Discovery Protocols Integration Technologies and Tools Application and Analytics Enablement Platforms A chapter on next-generation cloud infrastructure explains hosting IoT platforms and applications.
