CSE Speaker Series – Dr. Jay Misra

On Friday, October 27 at 11:00 am in Cramer 221, Dr. Jay Misra of NMSU will give a talk on “Scalability, Trust, and Access Control in the IoT/CPS and Smart Grid: An Information-centric Networking Approach”.

Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) will form the foundation of our progress towards creating smart cities, smart transportation, and smart grid. The growth in IoT/CPS would result in over 35 billion new devices connected to the Internet over the next 5-7 years. Further, all these devices will be connected at the Internet-edge, which has always been the bandwidth- and capability-limited portion of the Internet. This brings forth several interesting and hereto unseen research challenges that span several interdisciplinary research domains. The host-based networking model currently used in the Internet is up-ended by these devices, data security and privacy become more important, and data volumes keep growing. In this talk, Dr. Misra will discuss these challenges in the context of the smart grid and discuss proposed network architecture to address some of the problems. Dr. Misra will also discuss several IoT/CPS scalability and security/privacy solutions proposed by his research group. These solutions will be relevant to devices on the smart grid, and broadly to smart cities and smart transportation.
