This book brings together the essential methodologies required to understand the advancement of digital technologies into digital transformation, as well as to protect them against cyber threat vulnerabilities (in this context cybersecurity attack ontology is included, modeling different types of adversary knowledge). It covers such essential methodologies as CIA Triad, Security Risk, Likelihood, and Consequence Level, Threat Attack Profiling, Threat Intelligence, Threat Lifecycle and more. The idea behind digital transformation is to use digital technologies not only to replicate an existing process in a digital form, but to use digital technology to transform that process into something intelligent (where anything is connected with everything at any time and accessible and controlled and designed advanced). Against this background, cyber threat attacks become reality, using advanced digital technologies with their extreme interconnected capability which call for sophisticated cybersecurity protecting digital technologies of digital transformation. Scientists, advanced-level students and researchers working in computer science, electrical engineering and applied mathematics will find this book useful as a reference guide. Professionals working in the field of big data analytics or digital/intelligent manufacturing will also find this book to be a valuable tool.
This book has a focus on the development and deployment of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) paradigm, discussing frameworks, methodologies, benefits and limitations, as well as providing case studies of employing the IoT vision in the industrial domain. IIoT is becoming an attractive business reality for many organisations such as manufacturing, logistics, oil and gas, energy and other utilities, mining, aviation, and many more. The opportunities for this paradigm are huge, and according to one report, the IIoT market is predicted to reach $125 billion by 2021. The driving philosophy behind the IIoT is that smart machines are better than humans at accurately capturing, analysing and communicating real-time data. The underlying technologies include distributed computing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and machine-to-machine communication, with a typical IIoT system consisting of intelligent systems (applications, controllers, sensors, and security mechanisms), data communication infrastructure (cloud computing, edge computing, etc.), data analytics (to support business intelligence and corporate decision making), and most importantly the human element. The promised benefits of the IIoT include enhanced safety, better reliability, smart metering, inventory management, equipment tracking, and facilities management. There are, however, numerous issues that are also becoming the focus of active research, such as concerns regarding service availability, data security, and device communication. Lack of ubiquitous interoperability between heterogeneous devices is also a major concern. This book intends to fill a gap in the IIoT literature by providing the scientific contributions and latest developments from researchers and practitioners of international repute, focusing on frameworks, methodologies, benefits, and inherent issues/barriers to connected environments, especially in industrial settings. The intended audience includes network specialists, hardware engineers, and security experts who wish to adopt newer approaches for device connectivity, IoT security, and sensor-based devices design. University level students, researchers and practitioners will also find the latest innovation in technology and newer approaches relevant to the IIoT from a distributed computing perspective.
