The ultra large scale of the Internet of Things (IoT) along with a number of other constraints introduce significant challenges to the software dependability of IoT. For example, frequent reconfiguration due to nodes joining/leaving a large-scale network can cause serious problems for providing timely services. More specifically, IoT provides data-centric, device-centric and servicecentric functionalities under limitations such as resource and energy-constrained nodes, heterogeneity of hardware/software platform, deployment in harsh environments (e.g., industrial settings), interaction with human users, and topological dynamism (i.e., frequent changes in topology due to node/link failures). To build a robust and reliable IoT infrastructure, we need novel and holistic methods that can treat dependability aspects (e.g., fault-tolerance, security, performance, timeliness) as first class citizens at all layers of the software stack. This is a daunting challenge in part due to the conflicting requirements of some dependability aspects (e.g., resource/data redundancy may increase security vulnerabilities).
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners towards forming a unified community that can share experiences and tackle these challenges in an all-inclusive approach. The focus of CD-IoT will be on the theoretical and practical aspects of modeling, designing, implementing and evaluating the dependability of the software stack of IoT systems under various constraints.
