IoT Healthcare Systems and Cyber Security


Internet of things (IoT) has emerged as a topic of intense interest among the research and industrial community since it created revolutionary impact on human life. Despite the valuable revolution, the security of IoT devices has become a serious concern nowadays, especially for the healthcare domain. The growing use of IoT technology in healthcare systems and devices make them open to the cyber-attacks, e.g., denial of service (DoS), data breach (eaves-dropping), phishing attacks, etc. These severe cyber-attacks can surge the morbidity and mortality if the serious steps are not taken by both the research and industrial community. Therefore, in this workshop, we aim to aware and motivate the audience to work on the security of the IoT healthcare systems. In order to stimulate the audience, we will demonstrate the audience to know about the two existing cutting edge technologies, i.e., cyber security and artificial intelligence (AI) that can be used to develop the state-of-the-art solutions for securing the IoT healthcare systems from cyber-attacks. We will demonstrate the how one can use network traffic generation techniques to simulate the normal and attack traffic of an IoT healthcare use case. Further, we will also demonstrate how one can use AI to develop machine learning models for detecting the anomalies in the generated IoT healthcare use case traffic. By following the demonstration given in the workshop, the audience will be able to improve the security and data privacy of the IoT healthcare systems.
