WiNeMO Security Provision - Security in M2M environments



Machine-to-Machine (M2M) systems promise to offer pervasive environments where machines are active and can communicate with each other without requiring human intervention. The M2M concept encompasses a combination of diverse heterogeneous electronic, communication and software technologies. In a M2M world there are sensors and actuators everywhere and such devices are able to communicate with each other and with devices on private networks or on the Internet. With a huge market expected for M2M devices and networks, M2M systems need to be properly developed and deployed. M2M technology will
find applications in areas such as industry automation, smart spaces, home automation and healthcare, among many others. This is also the vision of the Internet of Things (IoT), a world where ubiquitous and intelligent sensing applications contribute to a better and safer world. This vision may be materialized only if security is properly addressed from the start. Such applications will require a paradigm shift on how security is addressed.
