    ABSTRACT: A number of infrastructures are being deployed for Future Internet experimentation purposes, providing access to large-scale Internet of Things resources to researchers and industry. SmartSantander is among the largest ones, deployed at the city center of Santander, Spain. SmartSantander's augmentation uses smartphones provided by volunteers to increase sensing resources and ubiquity. The system lets developers write code for Android and automatically deploy their experiments to Android devices, alongside the SmartSantander platform. Initial results produced by experiments with a small number of volunteers show that the system provides meaningful extensions to the existing platform.

    ABSTRACT: The Internet of Things (IoT) will connect billions of devices to the Internet and create a large-scale dynamic and open environment with high heterogeneity. To assure rapid adoption of IoT applications, application developers and users need to be abstracted from IoT infrastructure via scalable middleware. Event-processing systems have the potential to contribute in filling the gap between the IoT infrastructure and applications layers. Event processing follows a decoupled model of interaction in space, time, and synchronization. However, the dimension of semantic coupling still exists and poses a challenge to scalability in highly semantically heterogeneous and dynamic environments such as the IoT. Here, the authors describe an approach based on loosely coupled producers and consumers enabled with approximate semantic matching of events. They emphasize a practitioner perspective to IoT architectures for building software that can tackle heterogeneity of IoT events.

    ABSTRACT: Swarmlets are applications and services that leverage networked sensors and actuators with cloud services and mobile devices. This article offers a way to construct swarmlets by composing "accessors,"' which are wrappers for sensors, actuators, and services, that export an actor interface. Actor semantics provides ways to compose accessors with disciplined and understandable concurrency models, while hiding from the swarmlet the details of the mechanisms by which the accessor provides sensor data, controls an actuator, or accesses a service. This architecture can leverage the enormous variety of mechanisms that have emerged for such interactions, including HTTP, Websockets, CoAP, and MQTT. Recognizing that these standards have emerged because of huge variability of requirements for bandwidth, latency, and security, accessors embrace heterogeneity instead of attempting to homogenize.

    ABSTRACT: As wireless networks flourish, Internet users can access social network platforms (such as Facebook and Twitter) through personal electronic devices anywhere and anytime. However, because users often deploy social network platforms in a public network setting, a common concern remains about how to guarantee privacy for photo sharing. Although most platforms aim to protect such privacy, few are able to reach the goal. This work focuses on an interesting potential privacy risk, called the deletion delay of photo sharing, by pinpointing and investigating the risk's existence in some well-known social network platforms.

    ABSTRACT: The Geography Markup Language (GML) - the existing standard for encoding geospatial data - has no mechanism for annotating such data with uncertainty. To address this issue while supporting the geospatial community's existing data and service standards, the authors extend GML to enable uncertainty markup. They demonstrate this extension's use with some common geospatial data types and Web services. The result is a robust capability to share error information while maintaining compatibility with existing geospatial data clients.

    ABSTRACT: In a world where data crunching has the potential to crunch out the individual, how can people respond? Kieron O'Hara discusses the dangers and downfalls of conflating people with data, without a balance in feedback between algorithms and individuals.

    ABSTRACT: Various domains have adopted multistakeholder models (MSMs) to address and deal with global challenges, such as sustainability, environment, climate, and Internet governance. Here, the authors examine the use of MSMs and their historical evolution, fundamentals, and characteristics. They also present examples of how such models are used in the global Internet governance ecosystem. Finally, the article presents a series of research questions that can be tackled to improve the efficiency of multistakeholder processes.

    ABSTRACT: Very little Internet communication is truly private, even if it is encrypted. The original concept for email privacy dates back a few decades and was meant to provide end-to-end privacy. Today, almost no one uses the software that provides this strong guarantee of resistance to massive surveillance. Why not? What software is there, and how can users take advantage of it?

    ABSTRACT: The Web of Things extends the Internet of Things by leveraging Web-based languages and protocols to access and control each physical object. In this article, the authors summarize ongoing work promoting the concept of an avatar as a new virtual abstraction to extend physical objects on the Web. An avatar is an extensible and distributed runtime environment endowed with an autonomous behavior. Avatars rely on Web languages, protocols, and reason about semantic annotations to dynamically drive connected objects, exploit their capabilities, and expose user-understandable functionalities as Web services. Avatars are also able to collaborate together to achieve complex tasks.

    ABSTRACT: To provide more relevant content and better responsiveness, many websites customize their services according to users' geolocations. However, if geo-oriented websites leave location-sensitive content in the browser cache, other sites can sniff that content via side channels. The authors' case studies demonstrate the reliability and power of geo-inference attacks, which can measure the timing of browser cache queries and track a victim's country, city, and neighborhood. Existing defenses cannot effectively prevent such attacks, and additional support is required for a better defense deployment.

    ABSTRACT: Smart mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and wearables, have successfully infiltrated our everyday lives. It's now common to find mobile devices with various sensors, including high-resolution cameras. Sensors on mobile devices produce rich contextual data and have enabled many useful context-aware applications. Video is probably the richest form of data mobile devices produce. However, today's devices and network infrastructure can support only rudimentary functions: uploading, downloading, and a little bit of processing. In this article, the author looks at the challenges of enabling more advanced processing capabilities, and conceives future opportunities regarding the videos smart mobile devices generate.

    ABSTRACT: There are many interests and incentives driving further evolution, development, and use of the Internet. It becomes apparent that a distributed, multistakeholder Internet governance model serves the needs of the Internet community best. It is important to preserve and support the institutions that comprise this current distributed governance model.
