Innovation in IoT security: From Continuous Biometrics to Trustworthy Manufacturing


Prof. Kui Ren
Zhejiang University, China


14:00-15:30 / December 20, Friday


19F meeting room #1901, NII


The human-to-machine (H2M) interaction provides critical interference for many Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. Securing the H2M interaction is a key to a trustworthy IoT ecosystem (e.g., smart home and wearables). In this talk, I will present two recent advancements. The first enables next-generation user authentication. The human cardiac motion was identified as the unique individual fingerprint, and we develop a high-sensitive and distortion-free continuous radar sensor to remotely capture the cardiac displacement over time and thus provide continuous user authentication. The second is about 3D printing security in manufacturing highly flexible and customized IoT devices. The proposed system harnesses the unclonable process variation in 3D printing manufacturing and leverages the corresponding geometry imperfection as the unique product signature.


Kui Ren is Distinguished Professor and Associate Dean of College of Computer Science and Technology at Zhejiang University, where he also directs the Institute of Cyber Science and Technology. Before that, he was SUNY Empire Innovation Professor at State University of New York at Buffalo. He received his PhD degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
