Article 1

IoT Cybersecurity: Research Challenges and Opportunities Ahead

Urban Sedlar, Leon Štefanič Južnič, Matej Kren, Matej Rabzelj, Andrej Kos, and Mojca Volk

In the past decade, we have witnessed an unprecedented expansion of the "world-sized robot," as various security researchers call the Internet of Things (IoT). This term is quite apt, as this is no longer just a mere sensor: it actuates, it moves, and it drives critical – and expensive – decisions, such as: when to unlock your car or your apartment door; when to turn on the heat; and when to stop the conveyor belt.

 


Article 2

Challenges Monitoring the Arctic Tundra: The Distributed Arctic Observatory Cyber-Physical System

Issam Raïs, Otto Anshus, Phuong H. Ha, and John Markus Bjørndalen

Climate change is deteriorating terrestrial biomes. The arctic tundra is the most challenged one. The extent of projected warming is so extreme that the tundra ecosystems will likely transform into novel states within a few decades, potentially leading to losses of important biodiversity and functions providing irreplaceable services to humanity.

 


Article 3Digitalization of COVID-19 Pandemic Management and Cyber Risk from Connected Systems

Petar Radanliev, David De Roure, Max Van Kleek

What makes cyber risks arising from connected systems challenging during the management of a pandemic? Assuming that a variety of cyber-physical systems are already operational-collecting, analyzing, and acting on data autonomously-what risks might arise in their application to pandemic management? We already have these systems operational, collecting, and analyzing data autonomously, so how would a pandemic monitoring app be different or riskier?

 


Article 3How oneM2M Unlocks the Potential of IoT to Enable Digital Transformation

Ken Figueredo

The topic of digital transformation has risen the agenda for many organizations over the past few years. The sudden shock of Covid-19 has accelerated its importance. Many person-to-person activities have migrated online. Consumers are ordering food supplies and banking remotely. Academia, businesses, and governments are transitioning their operational activities into online formats. Moreover, their workforces are becoming distributed.
