MITRE-ATARC Internet of Things Collaboration Symposium

The MITRE-ATARC Internet of Things Collaboration Symposium features discussion and white-boarding between government and industry subject matter experts in a small-group setting. The outcomes of these sessions will be compiled in a White Paper with recommendations to the government.


1. IoT and Security

This session will examine end points (hardware), applications/software, IPv6/networks impacts and challenges. Other discussion topics:

  • What is the lowest trust level with devices in an IoT?
  • How do we lower the acceptable trust levels to accommodate non-traditional devices?
  • Security by Design: Can software assurance be built in to reduce the “attack surface” of an IoT?
  • What needs to change in “consent and knowledge” practices to protect security (and privacy) yet enable the IoT?

Government Lead
Vincent Sritapan, Program Manager, Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA), Science & Technology Directorate, U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Dave Keppler, Principal Cyber Security Engineer, MITRE

2. Architecting IoT Ecosystems
Targeted for Enterprise Architects and CTOs, this session will define what makes up an IoT Ecosystem (and makes it more than just cloud/mobility/big data). Other discussion topics:

  • Are there risk management factors that are unique to IoT?
  • What role do business rules play in the IoT?
  • What role does governance play with regard to architecting IoT ecosystems?

Government Lead
Andrei Chursov*, Senior Advisor to the Administrator, U.S. General Services Administration

*Pending Agency Approval

Industry Lead
Tiffany Sargent, Principal Engineer & IoT Senior Solutions Architect, Intel Corporation

3. IoT Driving Changing Dynamics
What is really different in relation to the types and volume of end-points, types and speed of analytics, etc.?  This session will help frame the definition of IOT; point to gaps in research; discuss areas where cloud/mobility lessons learned can be applied to IoT; and examine how IoT might be in truly emerging technology territory. Other discussion topics:

  • What is the role of automated intelligence and data forensics?
