The Internet of Things (IoT) is a reality that changes several aspects of our daily life, from smart home monitoring to the management of critical infrastructure. The Routing Protocol for low power and Lossy networks (RPL) is the only de-facto standardized routing protocol in IoT networks and is thus deployed in environmental monitoring, healthcare, smart building, and many other IoT applications. In literature, we can find several attacks aiming to affect and disrupt RPL-based networks. Therefore, it is fundamental to develop security mechanisms that detect and mitigate any potential attack in RPL-based networks.

In this talk, I will present some of my previous and current research works that aims: (i) to provide secure data communication solutions in RPL-based IoT networks, and (ii) evaluates the performance of various Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) deployed for secure communications in different IoT applications. In particular, I have proposed novel techniques and build IDS to address various routing attacks (includes both, the traditional attacks and attacks specific to RPL-based IoT networks). Moreover, currently I am investigating the performance of several open-source and commercial network IDSs using a real world electric grid test-bed.

Short bio:

Dr. Pallavi Kaliyar is currently working as a postdoctoral fellow (with ERCIM Fellowship) at NTNU, Norway. At NTNU, she is part of the Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience (CISaR) research group under the supervision of Prof. Sokratis Katsikas. In 2021, she completed her PhD degree with the School of Brain Mind and Computer Science, University of Padua, Italy, with a fellowship for international students funded by CARIPARO.

During her PhD, she was part of the SPRITZ - Security and Privacy Research Group, under the supervision of Prof. M. Conti. Her research interest includes, Critical Infrastructure Security, IoT security, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Ultra-lightweight functions as a building blocks in IoT protocols.
