In our second class, we will begin at the heart of the Internet of Things – the sending and receiving of data. Whether it is collecting a simple room temperature reading or capturing a video frame for analysis, the IoT enables us to collect huge amounts of data for analysis then send out data in the form of commands or as human-readable data. The myriad forms that the data can take as well as the multiple protocols that we saw in our previous class make it a non-trivial task to assure the safety, security, and integrity of that data from its source to its intended destination. We will look at various methods we can use in our system design in order to effectively monitor and secure our data flow throughout the entire IoT network. Also, we will look at ways that we can approach communications issues with different protocols and physical layers in our network, which often consist of legacy devices that were not originally designed for the robustness required in the IoT.
