Stanford Secure Internet of Things Project
2017 Retreat: June 13-14, Santa Cruz

The Secure Internet of Things Research Program's held its annual research retreat on June 13-14, 2017. The event took place at Chaminade Resort and Spa in the Santa Cruz mountains and consisted of a mixture of talks, debate, and discussion between faculty, students, industrial affiliates, and guests on securing the Internet of Things.

This retreat focused on research results from the past year, with Ph.D. students presenting their work. There was a lunchtime poster session, previewed by a lightning talk session. The tradition of holding a debate continued; the debate was after lunch, between Dan Boneh and Keith Winstein, who debated the resolution that "SGX [a security technology in recent Intel processors] will make IoT applications more secure and safer." Research presentations focused on 4 topics: data processing, secure networks, platforms, and tools for Making.

Slides from the sessions will be posted over the next few days.
