The Internet of Things (IoT) creates value by connecting digital processes to the physical world using sensors, actuators and wireless networks. Being intertwined with critical industrial processes yet often lacking security features, IoT devices create a large new attack surface. To address this problem researchers from KU Leuven and VersaSense introduce a Security MicroVisor which provides memory isolation and custom security operations using software virtualization and assembly-level code verification.
Their research paper “SμV – the Security MicroVisor: a virtualisation-based security middleware for the Internet of Things” authored by Wilfried Daniels, Danny Hughes, Mahmoud Ammar, Bruno Crispo, Nelson Matthys, WouterJoosen was accepted for the Industry Track at the Middleware 2017 Conference.
Middleware is the ACM/IFIP/USENIX conference on middleware, to be held in Las Vegas, NV, USA, December 11-15, 2017.
