The Internet of Things: Secure Distributed Inference

Yuan Chen, Soummya Kar, Jose M.F. Moura
2018 IEEE Signal Processing Magazine  
Adversaries may hijack devices and compromise their data. As a result, reactive countermeasures, such as intrusion detection and resilient analytics, become vital components of security.  ...  The integrity and trustworthiness of data and data analytics are increasingly important concerns in IoT applications.  ...  This method may not identify which sensors have been attacked but nevertheless provides resilience against adversarial devices and ensures that the remaining sensors successfully estimate global pollutant  ...

Resilient asymptotic consensus in asynchronous robust networks

Heath J. LeBlanc, Xenofon Koutsoukos
2012 2012 50th Annual Allerton Conference on Communication, Control, and Computing (Allerton)  
The asynchronous consensus algorithm studied here uses local strategies to ensure resilience against the adversary nodes. The class of topologies studied are those that are robust.  ...  In this paper, we study the problem of reaching consensus asymptotically in the presence of adversary nodes whenever the network is asynchronous under a local broadcast model of communication.  ...  On the other hand, a local bound on the number of faulty nodes has been considered in fault-tolerant broadcasting [22] - [24] and consensus [24] , [25] , where it is assumed that at most F of any  ...

The do-all problem in broadcast networks

Bogdan S. Chlebus, Dariusz R. Kowalski, Andrzej Lingas
2001 Proceedings of the twentieth annual ACM symposium on Principles of distributed computing - PODC '01  
It is proved to be optimal if the number of faults is the only restriction on the adversary.  ...  Finally we consider the question if randomization helps for the channel without collision detection against weaker adversaries.  ...  Now it could happen that if we wanted to optimize our solutions against weaker adversaries then part O(p. min{f, t}) in the performance bound could be decreased.  ...

Trading correctness for privacy in unconditional multi-party computation [chapter]

Matthias Fitzi, Martin Hirt, Ueli Maurer
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In the active case, every function can be computed securely if and only if ta < n/3; when a broadcast channel is available, then this bound is ta < n/2. These bounds are tight.  ...  We further show that the bound t < n/2 for passive corruption holds even if the adversary is additionally allowed to make the passively corrupted players fail.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Ran Canetti for sending us early versions of [Can97, Can98] and David Chaum, Ronald Cramer, Ivan Damgård, Rosario Gennaro, Tal Rabin, Markus Stadler, and Michael  ...
