Kurt Wimmer, Yaron Dori, Lindsay Tobdsager: Scaling data security and privacy for an exploding Internet of Things

The Internet of Things—the massive networks of devices, sensors and other objects that connect and transmit information between each other and through the Internet—is poised to reshape how we think about the world, including our healthcare, transportation, energy consumption, shopping habits and homes. By 2017, research firm IDC expects the Internet of Things market to reach $7.3 trillion.
