IoT and Edge Computing for Architects - Second Edition

By: Perry Lea

Overview of this book

Industries are embracing IoT technologies to improve operational expenses, product life, and people's well-being. An architectural guide is needed if you want to traverse the spectrum of technologies needed to build a successful IoT system, whether that's a single device or millions of IoT devices. IoT and Edge Computing for Architects, Second Edition encompasses the entire spectrum of IoT solutions, from IoT sensors to the cloud. It examines modern sensor systems, focusing on their power and functionality. It also looks at communication theory, paying close attention to near-range PAN, including the new Bluetooth® 5.0 specification and mesh networks. Then, the book explores IP-based communication in LAN and WAN, including 802.11ah, 5G LTE cellular, Sigfox, and LoRaWAN. It also explains edge computing, routing and gateways, and their role in fog computing, as well as the messaging protocols of MQTT 5.0 and CoAP. With the data now in internet form, you'll get an understanding of cloud and fog architectures, including the OpenFog standards. The book wraps up the analytics portion with the application of statistical analysis, complex event processing, and deep learning models. The book then concludes by providing a holistic view of IoT security, cryptography, and shell security in addition to software-defined perimeters and blockchains.

IoT and Edge Security

The first chapter of this book revealed the size, growth, and potential of the Internet of Things (IoT). There are currently billions of devices, and the double-digit growth of connecting the analog world to the Internet also forms the largest attack surface on Earth. Exploits, damage, and rogue agents have already been developed, deployed, and spread globally, disrupting countless businesses, networks, and lives. As architects, we are responsible for understanding the IoT stack of technologies and securing them. As we place devices that have never been connected to the Internet, as good citizens, we are accountable for designing them.

This has been particularly difficult for many IoT deployments, with security often being thought of last. Frequently, systems are so constrained that building enterprise-level security that modern web and PC systems enjoy is difficult if not impossible on simple IoT sensors. This book also talks about security after...
