SECURITY AND PRIVACY IN THE INTERNET OF THINGS : challenges and solutions( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Internet of Things (IoT) can be defined as any network of things capable of generating, storing and exchanging data, and in some cases acting on it. This new form of seamless connectivity has many applications: smart cities, smart grids for energy management, intelligent transport, environmental monitoring, healthcare systems, etc. and EU policymakers were quick to realize that machine-to-machine communication and the IoT were going to be vital to economic development. It was also clear that the security of such systems would be of paramount importance and, following the European Commission?s Cybersecurity Strategy of the European Union in 2013, the EU?s Horizon 2020 programme was set up to explore available options and possible approaches to addressing the security and privacy issues of the IoT.00This book presents 10 papers which have emerged from the research of the Horizon 2020 and CHIST-ERA programmes, and which address a wide cross-section of projects ranging from the secure management of personal data and the specific challenges of the IoT with respect to the GDPR, through access control within a highly dynamic IoT environment and increasing trust with distributed ledger technologies, to new cryptographic approaches as a counter-measure for side-channel attacks and the vulnerabilities of IoT-based ambient assisted living systems.00The security and safety of the Internet of Things will remain high on the agenda of policymakers for the foreseeable future, and this book provides an overview for all those with an interest in the field

La chica del trombón by Antonio Skármeta( Book )

67 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in Spanish and Italian and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Al Puerto de Antofagasta, en Chile, arriba desde Europa un trombonista con una niña de dos años para entregársela al emigrante malicioso Esteban Coppeta, a quien le asegura que se trata de su nieta. Pese a la dudosa filiación, éste la acepta y la chica del trombón vive con él los años de infancia y adolescencia procurando echar luz sobre sui pasado y su identidad. Enterada de que su probable abuela es Alia Emar, una novia vejada por tropas enemigas durante su noche de bodas en la Adriática isla de Gema, decide asumir la fantasía, la identidad y el nombre de ella para reivindicarla con su propia vida. Si el real parentesco entre Eseteban Coppeta y la chica del trombón es cuestionable, la relación que se establece entre ambos a través del amor, la ironía y el dolor crea lazos de sangre más fuertes que los naturales. Como otros emigrantes maliciosos en Chile, Alia Emar comparte con ellos su amor por el cine, las heroínas románticas y su obsesión por Nueva York, donde sueña con encontrar algún día a su tío abuelo Reino Coppeta, probable fabricante del monstruo cinematográfico King Kong. La búsqueda de aliados para su aventura de escapar a Estados Unidos la une a deliciosos personajes que alentarán u obstruirán su proyecto. Una novela profunda, repleta de amor a la vida, que sabe equilibrar dolor y ternura, contada con alegría, espontaneidad, humor, y ese encanto de la prosa de Antonio Skármeta que sedujo a los lectures de 'La Boda del Poeta y e el Cartero de Neruda'"--Publisher's description, p. [4] of cover
A distant father by Antonio Skármeta( Book )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in Spanish and English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacques is a schoolteacher in a small Chilean village, and a French translator for the local paper. He owes his passion for the French language to his Parisian father, Pierre, who, one year before, abruptly returned to France without a word of explanation. Jacques and his mother's sense of abandonment is made more acute by their isolation in this small community where few read or think. While Jacques finds distraction in a crush on his student's older sister, his preoccupation with his father's disappearance continues to haunt him. But there is often more to a story than the torment it causes. This one is about forgiveness and second chances
