Event description

Joe Klein came to Switzerland for a project. We took the opportunity to meet him on Thursday, May 17, at Digicomp Zurich. Joe provided an overview of the current status of IPv6 security, typical IPv6 attack points, impact of technologies such as cloud and blockchain, and challenges for effective Internet of Things (IoT) security measures. Especially in the IoT, when it comes to health care, self-driving cars, aircraft cockpits, dams, nuclear power plants and similar critical infrastructures, it is essential that security can be guaranteed.

The evening was casual, it was all about meeting and discussing together. Participants brought their questions. Joe drew from plentiful resources and had many exciting anecdotes to share from his daily research.
