BoF (Birds of a Feather)

RACI aims to increase ties between the RIPE community and the academic/research sector. The RIPE NCC selected eight academics to attend the RIPE 73 Meeting and present their Internet-related research to, and receive feedback from, the community. At this session, those academics who have not presented in the main RIPE Meeting program will present and discuss their research.

Open Mic: The IoT is Coming…Should We Hide or Not?
Marco Hogewoning, RIPE NCC

From happy cows to your home’s thermostat, the IoT is broadly defined and comes in many forms. The things connected to the Internet are no longer the computers, laptops and mobile phones we’re familiar with.

There are many concerns ranging from personal privacy to questions about the larger dependency on Internet connectivity and the impact that might have on critical infrastructures such as national power grids, transportation systems and the economy as a whole.

As there are probably more questions than answers at this stage, it’s a good time to step back and ask what role RIPE can play in this space. Is it possible to describe and delimit the problem space and are we able to asses how the many new IoT technologies and applications will impact the RIPE community? In the midst of concerns over how the ever-increasing number of “smart” devices could become a threat to the very infrastructure they depend on themselves, can the RIPE community’s decades of experience and broad expertise be put to good us in safeguarding the security and stability of the Internet?

We want to hear from you! Followed by a short introduction, this will be an open mic session in which we’d like to hear how the IoT will impact your life, your business and whether you think there is an opportunity for RIPE to contribute to these developments.
