3rd International Workshop on Interoperability and Open-Source Solutions for the Internet of Things (InterOSS-IoT 2018)

09:00 – 13:00 Hrs – 06 June 2018, Bilbao, Spain
Euskalduna Jauregia Conference Center – Sala A3.2

Co-located with
Global IoT Summit 2018 as part of IoT Week 2018
04 – 07 June 2018, Bilbao, Spain

The InterOSS-IoT workshop is co-organized by the H2020 symbIoTe and BIG IoT Research and Innovation Actions, which are part of the Internet of Things European Platform Initiative (IoT-EPI), working on relevant aspects for enabling and bridgingthe IoT research and industry. The main objective of this workshop is to exchange experiences and ideas with the IoT community as well as contribute to build new knowledge around open issues and gaps on IoT interoperability, architectural principles, security and standardization efforts.

The main objective of this workshop is to exchange experiences and ideas with the IoT community as well as contribute to build new knowledge around open issues and gaps on Internet of Things interoperability, architectural principles and standardization efforts.

Organized as an International scientific event, the InterOSS workshop combines two keynote talks on privacy and security and the interoperability aspects of the Internet of Things, with contributions from the participants to further advance IoT research and solution space through peer reviewer Papers. Researchers and practitioners from academy and industry will share their experiences on IoT platforms and middleware solutions. Participants can expect from InterOSS workshop to expand their understanding of IoT interoperability aspects and privacy and security issues, and to identify and discuss existing and emerging solutions, standards, enabling IoT interoperability as well as open-source initiatives.

10:45 – 11:15 Coffee Break
11:15 – 11:45 Invited Talk: Open Source, Security and IoT 

The talk will highlight the role open source in the ongoing IoT build-out, across device and cloud ecosystems and within the various IoT project stacks and frameworks.  Building upon this vision, the talk will examine conventional wisdom and real-world statistics for the security of open source software, and how its presumed resiliency and known (and unknown) vulnerabilities impact security at the edge and in the cloud that hosts IoT apps and infrastructure.  Finally, it will review community and commercial efforts to build more secure code with open source and highlight best practices for choosing and integrating into IoT projects and products.
