Recent advances in artificial intelligence, edge computing, and big data have enabled extensive reasoning capabilities at the edge of the network. Edge servers are now capable of extracting meaningful intelligence from IoT nodes, which can benefit a very diverse set of IoT applications, including smart carrier and distribution networks (power, people, water, and food), smart agriculture and manufacturing, and healthcare and maintenance. Unfortunately, as the infrastructures become more intelligent, they also become more vulnerable to disruption due to cyberattacks and information leakage. Furthermore, the rich data gathering and analytics involved in driving the intelligent management substantially raise the stakes in terms of privacy violation of the people and organizations that it serves.
