Lecture 1: Digital Healthcare Security
Healthcare is an essential part of the national critical infrastructure network. Of the four critical infrastructures (safety, mission, business and security), hospital infrastructures are a mission-critical infrastructure. Damage to network communications and the loss of patient data would have a detrimental impact on the health provision. Additionally, many lifesaving medical devices, used by health care infrastructures, are vulnerable to attacks from the digital domain. Pacemakers for example, are calibrated wireless and have none or very little security in place. Medical devices are often limited in their computational and communication capabilities. Such devices are not built to accommodate computationally exhaustive operations. Similarly, most medical devices have low on-device memory, leading to the challenge that they are not able to execute complicated security protocols. Wireless s and open connections, present on medical devices, can also be compromised by attackers. Adversaries can manipulate the data transmitted and received by the device, alter dosages, and even turn devices off, putting patients’ lives at risk. However, a notable concern is that a successful attack on such device, presents an opportunity for an attacker to gain backdoor access into a healthcare infrastructure. This essentially allows attackers to bypass the network authentication infrastructure required to access systems containing sensitive personal data. In this talk Prof. Abdennour El Rhalibi will present challenges and solutions in digital healthcare security techniques relying on machine learning, visualisation techniques and IDS. The presentation will also include an overview of the research carried out at the Protect Centre.
Lecture 2: Optical Fiber Sensors and Applications
Optical fiber- d devices have been widely deployed in recent years. There are many advantages of using fiber as a sensor. These include electrically-passive operation, light weight, immunity to radio frequency interference and electromagnetic interference, high sensitivity, compact size, corrosion resistance, easily multiplexing and potentially low cost. Several novel fiber- d sensors and technologies developed are presented here, including fiber Bragg grating (FBG) d sensors, photonic crystal fiber (PCF) d sensors, specialty fiber- d sensors and distributed fiber sensing systems. FBGs as instinctive sensors, are ingeniously designed as two-dimensional (2D) tilt sensors, displacement sensors, accelerometers and corrosion sensors here; PCF d evanescent field absorption sensor, PCF induced Mach-Zehnder interferometer and Fabry-Perot refractometer for temperature and refractive index sensing are presented; d on localized surface Plasmon resonant (LSPR) effect, nano-sized fiber tip with gold nanoparticles are demonstrated for live cell index 15bio-sensing applications.
Lecture 3: Cognitive Industrial Internet of Things and 5G MTC’s Role
Industrial internet of things (IIoT), by providing connectivity to machines, robots, and sensors, etc, enables data intelligence-assisted information technology (IT) and operation technology (OT) convergence. In IIoT, multi-disciplinary research on communications, storage, computing and data analysis, control and management, and security, as well as cross-disciplinary system-level design optimization is needed, with built-in autonomous learning and adaptation capabilities. In this talk, we will start with a brief introduction to IIoT, and then share the IIoT research and design challenges. A design approach will then be proposed to overcome these challenges, under the theme of cognitive IIoT in which the device and the network will build up learning capabilities for context-aware resource, interference, and mobility management, automated fault detection and recovery, and robust connectivity; multi-modal security detection capability
is incorporated into the device and network for real-time anomaly and security detection and management. The interactive and cooperative edge-cloud analytics will also be introduced to enable low-latency real-time actionable insight and robust feature engineering. Finally, the 5G’s role, especially the 5G machine-type communications (MTC), from both the massive MTC aspect, and the ultra-reliable low latency communications (uRLLC) aspect, will be discussed.
