Smart cities deploy large numbers of sensors and collect a tremendous amount of data from them. For example, Advanced Metering Infrastructures (AMIs), which consist of physical meters that collect usage data about public utilities such as power and water, are an important building block in a smart city. In a typical sensor network, the measurement devices are connected through a computer network, which exposes them to cyber attacks. Furthermore, the data is centrally managed at the operator’s…

Blockchain for IoT security and privacy: The case study of a smart home

This paper shows that the proposed BC-based smart home framework is secure by thoroughly analysing its security with respect to the fundamental security goals of confidentiality, integrity, and availability, and presents simulation results to highlight that the overheads are insignificant relative to its security and privacy gains.

Specification-based intrusion detection for advanced metering infrastructures

A specification-based intrusion detection sensor that can be deployed in the field to identify security threats in real time and is argued that these trees are a simple, yet powerful tool to analyze complex security and privacy problems.
