Challenges in the IoT and Smart Environments: A Practitioners' Guide to Security, Ethics and Criminal Threats

Reza Montasari (Editor), Hamid Jahankhani (Editor), Haider Al-Khateeb (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book is an invaluable reference for those operating within the fields of Cyber Security, Digital Forensics, Digital Policing, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. The Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem presents a wide range of consumer, infrastructure, organisational, industrial and military applications. The IoT technologies such as intelligent health-connected devices; unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); smart grids; cyber-physical and cyber-biological systems; and the Internet of Military/Battlefield Things offer a myriad of benefits both individually and collectively. For example, implantable devices could be utilised to save or enhance patients’ lives or offer preventative treatments. However, notwithstanding its many practical and useful applications, the IoT paradigm presents numerous challenges spanning from technical, legal and investigative issues to those associated with security, privacy and ethics.
