Security and Privacy in the Machine-to-Machine eco-system
With millions of machines communicating with other machines, the M to M technology is still at its early stage. Environmental concerns, government regulations, rapid deployment of wireless networks will undoubtedly accelerate the take up of wireless M to M ecosystems covering a wide range of applications in our professional and personal everyday life.

While M to M technologies will be deployed to match convenience, other factors like complexity of the value chain, reliability, cost optimization, privacy and security are still raising questions.
For instance, with no human secret like PIN code, with less possibility to control deviations on the spot, it is likely that there will be more security challenges when deploying M to M technologies compared to a more traditional Human to Machine (H2M) technologie

With more than 10 years experience in the security industry and 2 years research on M to M technologies, Eurosmart share its findings on the key part of the M to M ecosystem which goes from the data acquisition up to data transmission, with a focus on security technologies to limit risks while respecting privacy. This session is also a way to anticipate another major technology development: Internet of Things.

Training's objectives
The following questions will be answered by industry experts and illustrated through several use cases and practical examples, with a focus on security technologies to limit risks while respecting privacy:
• How to define, describe and categorize a M to M eco-system, what are the key applications?
• What are the key drivers and the main barriers for M to M deployment?
• What are the current technologies and their evolution, why more standardization is needed?
• Why SIM will play a dominant role in M to M?
• Who are the key players and key influencers, how they will interact, what will be the role of Mobile Operators, Service providers, System integrators?
• Which network for which applications? Will LTE accelerate the take up?
• What are the main security risks, how to prevent, how to balance security, cost and privacy?
• How to know more about M to M: forums, associations, conferences, certification bodies?

Who should attend?
Engineers, Project managers, Technical managers of System Integrators, Service Providers, Telecoms Operators as well as Security, RFID, Standardization Experts, Certification bodies, etc.

Key topics
All technologies from interfacing with the analog world up to the transmitting data to application servers: M2M module (modem), analog interface (detectors, sensors, MEMs).

Silicon Packaging; O/S, application software, personalisation; Wireless network: (2G, 3G, 4G/LTE) and Data exchange. Security and privacy. Internet of things.
