The IoT ecosystem consists of three parties: Internet-of-Thing systems, physical world and adversaries. We believe that a well-functioning IoT system should satisfy three basic requirements. Firstly, IoT devices should be able to properly interact with and intelligently sense the physical world. Secondly, IoT devices should be able to identify other authentic IoT peers to enable device cooperation. Thirdly, IoT system should be robust against spoo?ng from adversaries.
In this talk, I would like to share some of our recent efforts on intelligent and secure IoT sensing by examining the above requirements. Particularly, I would like to share some of work related to contactless sensing as well as some potential spoofing attack that may exist in the smart sensing scenario.
