Carnegie Mellon CyLab’s Secure and Private IoT Initiative (IoT@CyLab)'s 2020 round of funding supported ten IoT-related projects for one year. While all Internet of Things security and privacy topics were within scope, IoT@CyLab especially targeted the practical systems solutions for security of industrial control systems and Industrial IoT.   

Funding for these projects was made possible by sponsorships from Amazon Web Services, AT&T Business, Infineon Technologies, and Nokia Bell Labs. These sponsors actively worked with IoT@CyLab co-directors Anthony Rowe and Vyas Sekar on the request for proposals and proposal review. 

The projects are grouped into three broad research themes:
