Dell EMC and Nokia Team Up on Semi-Autonomous Barges in Delft

Delft

Dell EMC and Nokia have joined as lead technology partners in a public-private smart city initiative to help the historic Dutch City of Delft reduce truck congestion in the city center using semi-autonomous, hydrogen-powered barges in existing waterways for ‘last mile’ transportation. This collaboration is intended to help reduce traffic, in turn helping the region meet carbon emission, sustainability and economic development targets. The world’s urban population is expected to double by 2050, and this only serves to increase the demand on already stretched municipal resources. City governments are adopting…

How Is 2018 Shaping Up for IoT?

An article by Marc, Editor at IoT Business News. If there’s one thing we have learned about IoT in the past, it’s that the predictions of its size are not to be trusted. From the early predictions of a trillion devices by 2015, to the more recent predictions of 50 billion devices by 2020, those in the know seem to have used IoT growth predictions as an exercise of building hype, only to have it reduced to nothing by hard-hitting reality.

Key Reinstallation Attacks

Breaking WPA2 by forcing nonce reuse Discovered by Mathy Vanhoef of imec-DistriNet, KU Leuven Serious weaknesses discovered in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). Concretely, attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted. This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on. The attack works against all modern…
