M2M Lightning Talks

The M2M Lightning Talks are a series of short (10-minute) talks that highlight different aspects of open IoT and M2M development. We are adding talks as the descriptions become available.

Using Kafka to Scale MQTT
Tim Kellogg, 2lemetry

At 2lemetry we've built an MQTT broker that scales horizontally - even in worst case scenarios. Come hear about the challenges in making MQTT scale and how we used Apache Kafka to address some of those issues.

Securing IoT Applications

The Internet of Things and Machine to Machine are growing areas, and security and privacy are prime issues. In this session we will examine the security challenges around using M2M devices with protocols such as MQTT & CoAP. In particular we will look at encryption, federated identity and authorization models. On the topic of encryption, we’ll examine securing MQTT with TLS, challenges with Arduino, and using hardware encryption for microcontrollers. A key privacy requirement for user-centric IoT use cases will be giving users control over how their things collect and share data.

M2M, IoT, device management: one protocol to rule them all?

M2M is rapidly growing and since its early days different "standard" protocols have emerged (e.g. OMA-DM, TR-069, MQTT, ...) or are emerging (e.g. CoAP or Lightweight M2M).
Understanding which protocol to use for which application can be intimidating, therefore we propose to give an overview of these protocols to help you understand their goals and characteristics. We will give a status of the availaible open source implementations in the Eclipse M2M ecosystem, with projects such as Paho, Mihini and Ponte.
