The views expressed in this comment do not necessarily reflect the views or policy of the Institute of Infocomm Research (I2R) of Singapore. Dear Jay, Karen, My name is Rodrigo Roman Castro, researcher in the Institute for Infocomm Research – Singapore. I have worked on IoT security research since a long time ago, and was the program chair of one of the first workshops in this area (SecIoT’10 - https://www.nics.uma.es/seciot10/). I have read in your website that you are seeking input on the privacy and security implications of the Internet of Things developments. I know you are only looking for contributions for the workshop, but in case you need to proactively contact members of this community, I would like to show you various websites / communities where you can find IoT experts. - IERC (http://www.internet-of-things-research.eu/). IERC is a cluster of European FP7 research projects, where various universities, research institutes and companies work to solve many of the IoT present and future problems. I recommend you to read the various cluster books, where you can find answers to some of your questions regarding the IoT fundamental concerns. - Linkedin IoT group (http://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=73311&trk=anet_ug_hm). This group is focused on all aspects of the IoT, and has more than 3000 members – not only researchers but also entrepreneurs and major company players. - Postscapes (http://postscapes.com). While this is mostly a personal website, the list of the “Top 100 IoT thinkers” (http://postscapes.com/top-100-thinkers-tracking-the-internet-of-things) accurately describes some of the pioneers in this area (this list was written in 2011). Also, for information on security researchers that are working in specific security issues, I recommend you to read section 3 of the attached document (in particular, the various “Promising approaches” sections). Regards, hope this information can be useful to you, Rodrigo Dr. Rodrigo Roman :: Scientist I :: Network Security Lab :: Institute for Infocomm Research (I²R) :: Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) 1 Fusionopolis Way, #21-01 Connexis (South Tower), Singapore 138632 :: DID (65) 6408 2054 :: http://www.i2r.a-star.edu.sg :: Connect with us on Facebook!
