Module duration: 4 hours
Amazon and Google provide cloud platforms to create complex IoT systems. We analyse their security features and the main differences. Apple HomeKit is an Apple vertical example, which allows the control of home automation devices from the iOS devices. Amazon Alexa is an application for the managing of the vocal assistant, integrated in the embedded systems. For its integration, Amazon sets specific security requirements.
The aim of this module is to describe and analyse the main IoT platforms today in use. This module allows one to acquire a general view on these platforms, and together to absorb the concepts of them applied to the specific examples.
This module focuses on the IoT platforms. After an overview and some general comments, the described platforms are:
• Amazon AWS IoT
• Amazon AVS, with its security requirements
• Google IoT Core
• Apple HomeKit
This module is intended for the persons (both professionals and not) that would like to understand what is an IoT ecosystem, how it works and how it collects and processes data.
