The inaugural installment of Federal Internet of Everything (IoE) Summit, held on November 10, 2015, included three MITRE-ATARC (Advanced Technology Academic Research Center) Collaboration Sessions. These collaboration sessions allowed industry, government, academic, and MITRE representatives an opportunity to collaborate and discuss challenges the government faces in Internet of Things (IoT/IoE). The working definition for the summit and collaboration sessions was: An infrastructure of interconnected objects, people, systems and information resources together with intelligent services to allow them to process information of the physical and the virtual world and react. The goal of these sessions is to create a forum to exchange ideas and develop recommendations to further the adoption and advancement of the Internet of Things techniques and best practices within the government.
Participants representing government, industry, and academia addressed three challenge areas in federal IoT/IoE: IoT and Security, Architecting IoT Ecosystems, and IoT Driving Changing Dynamics.
This white paper summarizes the discussions in the collaboration sessions and presents recommendations for government and academia while identifying orthogonal points between challenge areas. For the sake of clarity, the term IoT is used throughout the paper when referring to IoT/IoE or IoE as used and defined above.
