12:30 Opening by Robert-Jan Smits, President TU/e

12:45 Opening by professor dr. Sandro Etalle (TU/e)

Title - Towards an Internet of Secure Things
Synopsis - ...

13:30 Invited Talk by dr. Allan Friedman (US Government, NTIA)

Title – What’s in the box: Software Bill of Materials for Devices
Synopsis – Devices are often seen as opaque, but we need better insight into the software components that make up the embedded systems on which we depend. This talk will present the emerging industry consensus around a “software bill of materials” that provides transparency around the underlying software components that are used to build modern, software-based devices. This "SBOM” can help developers deliver a more secure product, help buyers understand what they are acquiring, and operators understand the risks of what is on their networks over time. Transparency into the software supply chain further enables a host of further use cases around supply chain risk management and software assurance.

14:45 Invited Talk by Mrs. Nelly Ghaoui (NL Government, EZK)

Synopsis - The cyber security of digital products and services and especially Internet-of-Things is lacking. We cannot expect consumers to become cyber security specialists to fix the problem. As a professional cyber security community from industry, research and government it’s up to us to come together to raise the bar in society.

15:15 Invited Talk by professor dr. Aiko Pras (University of Twente)

Title - DDOS and Internet-of-Things
Synopsis - DDoS is still one of the important security challenges we are confronted with. For example, early September the NCSC published a news item that many ISPs and vital infrastructures (such as DNS) were target of attacks twice as strong as last year (2020: 250Gbps, 2019: 124Gbps). Unfortunately the massive introduction of insecure Internet-of-Things devices will make things worse. In this talk we will provide an overview of how current attacks look like, and the impact that Internet-of-Things may have on the attack landscape. Fortunately some new DDoS defence approaches are being developed, so the talk will hopefully conclude with some positive news.

16:00 Presentation on the R&D programs

17:00 Invited Talk by dr. Kees van der Klauw

Title - Internet-of-Things: commoditization of functions, differentiation by non-functionalities
Synopsis - For many years have digital innovations been equivalent to adding functionalities or extending functional performance to digital platforms. More pixels and more inches on displays, more channels on audio and video streaming devices, more bits per second connections, more (virtual) buttons on tablets and mobiles controlling ever more app’s. Those functions and features were the main competitive value drivers for companies but for many the result has been a rapid commoditization and shortening of lifetimes of those innovations, with decreasing added value, but strongly contributing to the value and power of the platforms they run on, generally owned by other (non-European) companies. Internet-of-Things is no exception to this. At the same time, non-functional aspects such as privacy, security, upgrade-ability, portability etc. were often compromised. With the increasing awareness and EU attention for those aspects, the new sustainable competitive value driver for companies may be in those non-functionalities and building trust with end-users. But it will require a shift to more consistent, longer term strategies than many companies are used to.
