RMIT Cyber Series: On the Identity of Things – Dr Gero Dittmann
The Centre for Cyber Security Research and Innovation welcomes Dr Gero Dittman to the RMIT Cyber Series.
Verifiable identity is a prerequisite for productive interactions, collaboration and trust. This is also true for physical objects whose authenticity is critical to determine their usefulness, their quality and, ultimately, their value. This talk will discuss the role of the authenticity of things, technologies for securing their identity, and the relationship between things, people and data.
