Security of Things: An Implementers’ Guide to Cyber-Security for Internet of Things Devices and Beyond

In this ebook we outline a set of practical and pragmatic cyber security considerations for organisations designing, developing and, testing Internet of Things (IoT) devices and solutions. The purpose is to provide practical advice for consideration as part of the product development life-cycle from concept to after market support.

While IoT products by their very nature encompass many forms of traditional embedded devices and supporting systems, we felt that distilling our knowledge and experience in the specific context of IoT would be useful. A lot of the concepts in this eBook could easily be applied to many other related areas of software and hardware product development.

Cyber-Security Holism: A System of Solutions for a Distributed Problem

The issue of cyber-security has been wrongfully divided into many parts, each part addressed separately. The approach
to cyber-security needs to examine the function of all the issues working together as in the study of complex systems.
Discussion: There is currently no effective cyber-security paradigm. Crime, exploitation, and invasions of privacy are
increasing costing billions of dollars and have even started to bridge into the physical world with the destruction of
uranium enrichment centrifuges in Iran by the Stuxnet virus. There are a multitude of cyber security issues, but the most
important topics address how to define malicious actions in cyberspace, the inadequacy of the international community
to address these actions, and how active a role the private sector should play in the overall cyber-security effort. There is
no groundbreaking technology that will solve this problem despite much work by government agencies and corporate
entities. In fact, this effort has compounded the problem of cyber-security being examined in its parts when it should be
looked at as a whole. This is a distributed problem that needs a distributed answer, a systems solution that works as in
any well engineered system.
Conclusion: The ideal answers for the individual issues of defining cyber-attack, applicability of current international law,
and the proper role of the private sector does not produce the best answer for an adequate cyber-security paradigm as a
whole. A system of solutions that produces an answer that is greater than their parts needs to be pursued.

Smarter Than Us: The Rise of Machine Intelligence

What happens when machines become smarter than humans? Forget lumbering Terminators. The power of an artificial intelligence (AI) comes from its intelligence, not physical strength and laser guns. Humans steer the future not because we're the strongest or the fastest but because we're the smartest. When machines become smarter than humans, we'll be handing them the steering wheel. What promises—and perils—will these powerful machines present? Stuart Armstrong’s new book navigates these questions with clarity and wit.

Can we instruct AIs to steer the future as we desire? What goals should we program into them? It turns out this question is difficult to answer! Philosophers have tried for thousands of years to define an ideal world, but there remains no consensus. The prospect of goal-driven, smarter-than-human AI gives moral philosophy a new urgency. The future could be filled with joy, art, compassion, and beings living worthwhile and wonderful lives—but only if we’re able to precisely define what a "good" world is, and skilled enough to describe it perfectly to a computer program.

A prototype security hardened field device for SCADA systems .

This thesis describes the development of a prototype security hardened field device (such as a remote terminal unit) based on commodity hardware and implementing a previously developed security architecture. This security architecture has not been implemented in the past due to the difficulty of providing an operating system which meets the architecture's isolation requirements. Recent developments in both hardware and software have made such an operating system possible, opening the door to the implementation and development of this new security architecture in physical devices attached to supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. A prototype is developed using commodity hardware selected for similarity to existing industrial systems and making use of the new OKL4 operating system. Results of prototype development are promising, showing performance values which are adequate for a broad range for industrial applications.
