Overview of this book

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the fastest growing technology market. Industries are embracing IoT technologies to improve operational expenses, product life, and people's well-being. Mastering Internet of Things starts by presenting IoT fundamentals and the smart city. You will learn the important technologies and protocols that are used for the Internet of Things, their features, corresponding security implications, and practical examples on how to use them. This book focuses on creating applications and services for the Internet of Things. Further, you will learn to create applications and services for the Internet of Things. You will be discover various interesting projects and understand how to publish sensor data, control devices, and react to asynchronous events using the XMPP protocol. The book also introduces chat, to interact with your devices. You will learn how to automate your tasks by using Internet of Things Service Platforms as the base for an application. You will understand the subject of privacy, requirements they should be familiar with, and how to avoid violating any of the important new regulations being introduced. At the end of the book, you will have mastered creating open, interoperable and secure networks of things, protecting the privacy and integrity of your users and their information.

Mastering data protection technologies

It is difficult to master all the technologies that exist concerning data protection. It is furthermore, a field that is in constant flux as new vulnerabilities are found. By choosing a good underlying foundation for your project, such as XMPP, you get a technology that helps you with many of the underlying risks — but not all. You will still need to understand the basics of data protection and cyber security. To cover this field meaningfully would require multiple books and is beyond the scope of this book. In this chapter, however, you will be presented by a very brief overview of technologies you should be familiar with, to the point of knowing how they work, what problems they solve, and when to use them.

Skimming the basics of encryption

Encryption algorithms are often divided into symmetric and asymmetric ciphers. Encryption algorithms often use multiple algorithms together to achieve the expected properties. Such ciphers are called hybrid. But...
