UCI’s Cybersecurity Policy & Research Institute (CPRI) received $1.4 million from the Herman P. & Sophia Taubman Foundation to explore emerging threats to the “internet of things,” the vast global network connecting billions of computers, devices, machines and sensors. With everything from voice-prompted apps controlling lighting, heat and appliances in homes to sophisticated factory automation and monitoring, the playing field for hackers and cybercriminals has grown exponentially in recent years.
CPRI researchers can attack the issue of securing the internet of things via three research projects. Professor Ian Harris is leading efforts to conduct internet of things technical testing and develop a cyber test range on the UCI campus. His research group has taken up shop in a fourth floor workspace of the CALIT2 Building.
