Introduction by Tom Coughlin, IEEE Senior Member

With the proliferation of smart connected devices in our homes, our automobiles and in wearable electronic devices, security and privacy have become crucial design requirements. These smart devices will be part of a non-hierarchical and intermittent local wired or wireless network perhaps through mobile phones or behind a gateway that connects them with enhanced services available in large data centers (the cloud). Data from these devices provides business intelligence for industries as well as services for consumers but also can be a source of more sophisticated identity theft, spoofing or spying. The creation of methods for anonymous sharing of person data as well as strong encryption of this data will be an essential element in creating a safe and secure consumer Internet of Things.
