By 2020, the Internet of Things (IoT) will consist of millions of computational devices intimately connected to real-world aspects of human life. In this insightful book, Professor Sean Smith, who worked in information security long before the web appeared, explains that if we build the IoT the way we built the current internet and other information technology initiatives, we’re headed for trouble. With a focus on concrete solutions, The Internet of Risky Things explains how we can avoid simple flaws that have plagued several dramatic IT advances in recent decades. Developers, engineers, industrial designers, makers, and researchers will explore "design patterns of insecurities" and learn what’s required to route around or fix them in the nascent IoT. Examine bugs that plague large-scale systems, including integer overflow, race conditions, and memory corruption Look at successful and disastrous examples of previous quantum leaps in health IT, the smart grid, and autonomous vehicles Explore patterns in coding, authentication, and cryptography that led to insecurity Learn how blunders that led to spectacular IT disasters could have been avoided

Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) consist of software-controlled computing devices communicating with each other and interacting with the physical world through sensors and actuators. A CPS has, therefore, two parts: The cyber part implementing most of the functionality and the physical part, i.e., the real world. Typical examples of CPS’s are a water treatment plant, an unmanned aerial vehicle, and a heart pacemaker. Because most of the functionality is implemented in software, the software is of crucial importance. The software determines the functionality and many CPS properties, such as safety, security, performance, real-time behavior, etc. Therefore, avoiding safety accidents and security incidents in the CPS requires highly dependable software. Methodology Today, many methodologies for developing safe and secure software are in use. As software engineering slowly becomes disciplined and mature, generally accepted construction principles have emerged. This monograph advocates principle-based engineering for the development and operation of dependable software. No new development process is suggested, but integrating security and safety principles into existing development processes is demonstrated. Safety and Security Principles At the core of this monograph are the engineering principles. A total of 62 principles are introduced and catalogized into five categories: Business & organization, general principles, safety, security, and risk management principles. The principles are rigorous, teachable, and enforceable. The terminology used is precisely defined. The material is supported by numerous examples and enriched by illustrative quotes from celebrities in the field. Final Words «In a cyber-physical system’s safety and security, any compromise is a planned disaster» Audience First, this monograph is for organizations that want to improve their methodologies to build safe and secure software for mission-critical cyber-physical systems. Second, the material is suitable for a two-semester, 4 hours/week, advanced computer science lecture at a Technical University. This textbook has been recommended and developed for university courses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

This book focuses on software architecture and the value of architecture in the development of long-lived, mission-critical, trustworthy software-systems. The author introduces and demonstrates the powerful strategy of “Managed Evolution,” along with the engineering best practice known as “Principle-based Architecting.” The book examines in detail architecture principles for e.g., Business Value, Changeability, Resilience, and Dependability. The author argues that the software development community has a strong responsibility to produce and operate useful, dependable, and trustworthy software. Software should at the same time provide business value and guarantee many quality-of-service properties, including security, safety, performance, and integrity. As Dr. Furrer states, “Producing dependable software is a balancing act between investing in the implementation of business functionality and investing in the quality-of-service properties of the software-systems.” The book presents extensive coverage of such concepts as: Principle-Based Architecting Managed Evolution Strategy The Future Principles for Business Value Legacy Software Modernization/Migration Architecture Principles for Changeability Architecture Principles for Resilience Architecture Principles for Dependability The text is supplemented with numerous figures, tables, examples and illustrative quotations. Future-Proof Software-Systems provides a set of good engineering practices, devised for integration into most software development processes dedicated to the creation of software-systems that incorporate Managed Evolution.

"Many of us go about our daily lives completely-some might say blissfully-unaware that we are surrounded by a cornucopia of devices that are running on various connected platforms and recording our physical presence, voices, heartbeats, and preferences. Have a look around you. Beyond your computer, tablet, or smartphone, how many 'things' that you see are connected to the Internet, either directly or indirectly? Are you wearing a Fitbit or an Apple Watch or using Airpods? Is there an Echo or Google Home in range? What about a connected fridge or smart laundry appliance? How far is the nearest Wi-Fi connected doorbell, light bulb, printer, or diaper? What about your heating and air conditioning and security systems? Now, do you know what data each of these devices is busily recording - or how that data is used or protected? What about the device itself - do you trust it to function consistently and safely? Does it matter? There is a great deal of buzz surrounding the Internet of Things (IoT), which is the notion, simply put, that nearly everything in our physical world - from gym shorts to streetlights to baby monitors, elevators, and even our own bodies - will be connected in our digital world. The Internet of Everything (IoE) (a term that Cisco helped to pioneer) takes this notion a step further by referring to not only the physical infrastructure of smart devices and services but also their impacts on people, businesses, and society.In the end, this book-indeed, dare we say no stand-alone volume-can do justice to the myriad opportunities and risks replete in the Internet of Things. But, our hope is that, by the end, you will feel like we at least did justice to unpacking some of the most important issues and concepts in this new frontier of technology and governance. There are no panaceas or magic bullets, and necessary policy or technological changes will not happen overnight; even the "Blockchain of Things" has its limits, as we will see. Dealing with formidable challenges, such as the pace of technological change or the realization of social and political rights online and offline, takes sustained effort. But, as Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said in reference to the U.S. civil rights movement, "If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl, but by all means, keep moving." In that spirit, let's get started!"--
