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.

Solving the puzzle

The design choices you make not only affect the security of your solution, but also how difficult it will become to make the solution GDPR compliant. Centralized big data solutions are difficult to make compliant, while decentralized edge solutions are easier to make compliant. The reason is that decentralized solutions lend themselves naturally to the wills of the corresponding owners. For centralized solutions, you must build a lot of data protection mechanisms manually, to safeguard the privacy of its data subjects.

In this book, we have studied multiple protocols for use with the Internet of Things. Among these, XMPP provides the following several features that can help you build solutions that protect the privacy of your data subjects:

  • The distributed, federated authentication and authorization model lends itself perfectly to making security decisions in distributed ad hoc networks.
  • Presence negotiation required to communicate efficiently provides an efficient means...
