Stanford Secure Internet of Things Project
2018 Retreat: June 6-7, Santa Cruz

The Secure Internet of Things Research Program held its annual research retreat on June 6-7, 2018. The one-and-a-half day event was at the Dream Inn on the Santa Cruz beach and boardwalk. The first day consisted of a poster session and evening dinner. The second day consisted of detailed research talks, a debate, and discussion between faculty, students, industrial affiliates, and guests on securing the Internet of Things.

The retreat focused on research results from the past year, presented by Ph.D. students, as well as discussion and debate on emerging security and privacy concerns. Much to the surprise of those attending, Henry Corrigan-Gibbs won the debate against Keith Winstein, convincing the audience that privacy research was unlikely to have impact in the face of financial and business pressures.
