Prashant Anantharaman wins IoT paper award – again

Congratulations to PhD student Prashant Anantharaman, whose paper "IoTHound: Environment-agnostic Device Identification and Monitoring" just won "best paper" award at the 10th International Conference on the Internet of Things. (A senior co-author was Michael Locasto, former post-doc at Dartmouth COSC.)

At the 9th International Conference on the Internet of Things last year, Prashant's paper "Scalable Identity and Key Management for Publish-Subscribe Protocols in the Internet-of-Things" was named one of the best three.

Prashant's research examines many aspects of how to manage security in "a world densely populated with autonomous and heterogeneous devices that provide services via a seamless exchange of information." The IoTHound project provides a human-usable portal to a system that uses many aspects of device network behavior to identity and monitor IoT devices in the smart home. In contrast, his IoT 2019 paper proposed and prototyped authentication systems for protocols used in wider populations of smart industrial systems, such as found in the power grid.
