IoT Security

by Ericsson

The IoT brings a new set of issues, such as the security, safety, and robustness of cyber-physical systems. Novel types of attack, as well as new privacy and cybersecurity regulations, may take many industries by surprise. Yet the economic benefits of the IoT as an enabler for analytics, automation, and process and resource optimization cannot be overstated. To succeed with the transformation that the IoT brings about, industries need to gather competence and understand new threats and how to mitigate them.
This white paper provides an insight into the major security and privacy challenges due to be met in the Networked Society. Specifically, it addresses security, safety, and privacy in the entire IoT value chain, which includes devices, networks, cloud, infrastructure, applications, and services. The paper also identifies the main security challenges and approaches that need to be taken in the IoT sphere to withstand attacks, and discusses how IoT security and privacy need to be addressed through technology, standardization, and regulation.

Bluetooth mesh networking

by P. DiMarco, P. Skillermark, A. Larmo, and P. Arvidson

Bluetooth mesh, officially launched in July 2017, is a highly anticipated addition to the Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity space. Bluetooth is a widely used short-range technology found in smartphones, tablets and consumer electronics, and the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has a strong reputation for delivering specifications and tools that guarantee global, multi-vendor interoperability.
The Bluetooth Mesh Profile standardizes a full stack connectivity solution for mesh networking, extending Bluetooth applicability for IoT use cases. Ericsson is a founding member of the Bluetooth SIG and has actively participated in the definition of the architecture and the development of the mesh profile specification.
This white paper provides an overview of the Bluetooth Mesh Profile and highlights some of its unique features. It also presents a large-scale building automation use case and illustrates the impact of configuration and deployment strategies on the mesh network.
