Abstract

Cloud computing has been a great enabler for both the Internet of Things and Big Data. However, as with all new computing developments, development of the technology is usually much faster than consideration for, and development of, solutions for security and privacy. In a previous paper, we proposed that a unikernel solution could be used to improve security and privacy in a cloud scenario. In this paper, we outline how we might apply this approach to the Internet of Things, which can demonstrate an improvement over existing approaches.
