What is the “Internet of Things” (IoT)? It refers to a potentially near-future Internet architecture where billions of everyday objects will each be assigned an IP address, enabling people to interact with these objects through the Internet, and for the objects to interact with each other. Representative industry “positions” on the IoT include Microsoft [Microsoft IoT], Cisco [Cisco IoT], and Google [Google IoT], just to name a few. Currently, the future IoT is still unclear, yet the IoT holds a potential to transform the way we interact with our world. Facing the myriad of technical challenges, IEEE is playing a central role in coordinating and publishing cutting edge research in IoT. Read more.
The Cluster Between Internet of Things and Social Networks: Review and Research Challenges
Authors: Antonio Ortiz, Dina Hussein, Soochang Park, Son Han, and Noel Crespi, Telecom SudParis, France
Whereas the current “Intranet of Things” consists of a local network (like a wireless sensor network) capable of exchanging local information, the envisioned “Internet of Things” would extend the scope and scale by interconnecting these networks. Beyond the IoT lies the Social Internet of Things (SIoT), where the environmental information from the IoT is merged with social networking principles, to enable useful “social driven” human to device interaction. Whereas the IoT is a “"a world-wide network of interconnected objects uniquely addressable, based on standard communication protocols", the SIoT paradigm facilitates interaction. Interaction is facilitated in a variety of ways, e.g., enabling devices to play a “social role” (smart objects), facilitating easier service discovery, and facilitating service interoperability (“mash-ups”).

Ubiquitous WSN for Healthcare: Recent Advances and Future Prospects
Authors: Yuan Zhang (University of Jinan, China), Limin Sun, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China, Houbing Song, West Virginia University, USA, and Xiaojun Cao, Georgia State University, USA
Advances in health monitoring devices promise to usher in a new era in healthcare where health data is being constantly collected (through a wearable monitoring platform) and transmitted to and analyzed by the healthcare provider. In contrast with current medical practices (episodic measurement and care), a ubiquitous health data stream promises to improve diagnosis accuracy, reduce treatment delay, and reduce obstacles for patients to receive treatment.

Sybil Attacks and Their Defenses in the Internet of Things
Authors: Kuan Zhang, University of Waterloo, Canada, Xiaohui Liang, Dartmouth College, USA, Rongxing Lu, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and Xuemin Shen, University of Waterloo, Canada
A Sybil attack is a security threat where an attacker employs a false/forged identity to gain unauthorized access to a secure system. A Sybil attack is of particular concern in the IoT because of the extensive personal data envisioned to be made available on the IoT. Read more.
