A conceptual information sharing framework to improve supply chain security collaboration
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractModern Supply Chains are critical in terms of efficiency, economic activities and commercial impact, particularly in case of security incidents. Inland terminals, commercial ports and dry ports constitute key gateways for the transportation flows in these modern supply chains and are require enhanced security procedures. This paper develops a framework that facilitates the sharing of information among various supply chain stakeholders, which is expected to improve the security level from a value chain perspective. In this context, we propose the upgrade of the current security strategies utilizing existing processes, equipment in order to minimise time and cost currently needed but more importantly improving the level of security in the supply chain. A conceptual rule and role-based data fusion framework is developed enabling the seamless and timely exchange of messages. The proposed Data Fusion Framework has a simple architecture that supports quick integration to either network-based, distributed systems or conventional stand-alone systems and adheres to common data fusion principles. The proposed framework considers different components (e.g. sensors, algorithms and fusing procedures) in an equipment agnostic approach so as to enable easy access and easy usage of security information.

A framework for orchestrating secure and dynamic access of IoT services in multi-cloud environmentsLiu, Lu; Zhu, Shao Ying; Kazim, Muhammad; University of Derby (IEEE, 2018-10-16)IoT devices have complex requirements but their limitations in terms of storage, network, computing, data analytics, scalability and big data management require it to be used it with a technology like cloud computing. IoT backend with cloud computing can present new ways to offer services that are massively scalable, can be dynamically configured, and delivered on demand with largescale infrastructure resources. However, a single cloud infrastructure might be unable to deal with the increasing demand of cloud services in which hundreds of users might be accessing cloud resources, leading to a big data problem and the need for efficient frameworks to handle a large number of user requests for IoT services. These challenges require new functional elements and provisioning schemes. To this end, we propose the usage of multi-clouds with IoT which can optimize the user requirements by allowing them to choose best IoT services from many services hosted in various cloud platforms and provide them with more infrastructure and platform resources to meet their requirements. This paper presents a novel framework for dynamic and secure IoT services access across multi-clouds using cloud on-demand model. To facilitate multi-cloud collaboration, novel protocols are designed and implemented on cloud platforms. The various stages involved in the framework for allowing users access to IoT services in multi-clouds are service matchmaking (i.e. to choose the best service matching user requirements), authentication (i.e. a lightweight mechanism to authenticate users at runtime before granting them service access), and SLA management (including SLA negotiation, enforcement and monitoring). SLA management offers benefits like negotiating required service parameters, enforcing mechanisms to ensure that service execution in the external cloud is according to the agreed SLAs and monitoring to verify that the cloud provider complies with those SLAs. The detailed system design to establish secure multi-cloud collaboration has been presented. Moreover, the designed protocols are empirically implemented on two different clouds including OpenStack and Amazon AWS. Experiments indicate that proposed system is scalable, authentication protocols result only in a limited overhead compared to standard authentication protocols, and any SLA violation by a cloud provider could be recorded and reported back to the user.
An experimental study of a reliable IoT gatewayKang, Byungseok; Choo, Hyunseung; Sungkyunkwan University (Elsevier, 2017-04-27)The Internet of Things (IoT) will include new devices specifically designed for IoT compatibility and systems that are already in place today and operate outside of IoT networks. However, the path to creating cloud networks of interconnected devices requires a means for devices that are not IP-based to connect without having to bear the cost of a full Ethernet or WiFi interface with the accompanying protocol stack. This can be achieved through the use of IoT gateways that bridge these devices to the Internet in the context of real-world applications. In this paper, we introduce an experimental study of a reliable and self-configurable IoT gateway that is developed in a laboratory testbed by using the IoTivity framework.The Internet of Things (IoT) will include new devices specifically designed for IoT compatibility and systems that are already in place today and operate outside of IoT networks.

Internet of everything: A large-scale autonomic IoT gatewayKang, Byungseok; Kim, Daecheon; Choo, Hyunseung; Sungkyunkwan University (IEEE, 2017-05-18)Gateways are emerging as a key element of bringing legacy and next generation devices to the Internet of Things (IoT). They integrate protocols for networking, help manage storage and edge analytics on the data, and facilitate data flow securely between edge devices and the cloud. Current IoT gateways solve the communication gap between field control/sensor nodes and customer cloud, enabling field data to be harnessed for manufacturing process optimization, remote management, and preventive maintenance. However, these gateways do not support fully-automatic configuration of newly added IoT devices. In this paper, we proposed a self-configurable gateway featuring real time detection and configuration of smart things over the wireless networks. This novel gateway's main features are: dynamic discovery of home IoT device(s), automatic updates of hardware changes, connection management of smart things connected over AllJoyn. We use the `option' field for automatic configuration of IoT devices rather than modify standard format of CoAP protocol. Proposed gateway functionality has been validated over the large-scale IoT testbed.
