Abstract: The Internet of Things promises huge potential for new user experiences and more efficient enterprise and consumer devices. At the same time, experience shows that connected devices become targets for attack. At Microsoft we have defined 7 properties that are necessary for devices to be secured, which requires features in device silicon, the device OS, and cloud services to operate in concert. To bring security to IoT, we created Azure Sphere, a platform that implements the 7 properties in a serviced solution including a Microsoft maintained OS and Microsoft-run cloud service. We worked with Mediatek to bring the first Azure Sphere certified silicon to market (MT3620) and are working with NXP and Qualcomm on future chips.

Bio: James Scott has been with the Azure Sphere team since its incubation in Microsoft Research, and has had roles in software development, engineering management and now program management as Azure Sphere has “graduated” from prototype to product. Previously, James was a researcher in ubiquitous and pervasive computing. His research interests include novel sensors and devices, IoT, rapid prototyping, wireless and mobile networking, energy management, and security and privacy. He has authored over 40 peer-reviewed publications and 60 patents. James received the Association for Computing Machinery’s SIGMOBILE Test of Time award in 2016 for work on location sensing in mobile phones. His academic leadership roles include being a founding editor of the leading journal in ubiquitous computing, PACM IMWUT , and chair of the steering committee for the UbiComp conference series. He received his PhD from the University of Cambridge.
