Abstract: We are increasingly surrounded by simple and not so simple devices with computational and communication capability, which assist us in everyday tasks and together comprise the idea of an Internet-of-Things. Some devices are used in security sensitive or critical applications, and their security capabilities are rightly attracting growing interest. This talk gives a brief overview of IoT, security issues in IoTs, continuing with discussion on the use of physical context to build, or improve, security services in IoT.
