Tradepub is offering up the 520 page title "Cyber-Assurance for the Internet of Things" published by Wiley free for a limited time.
The book covers a variety of IoT (Internet of Things) topics like information security, RFID, smart grids and more.
The book description says that "Cyber-Assurance for the Internet of Things is written for researchers and professionals working in the field of wireless technologies, information security architecture, and security system design. This book will also serve as a reference for professors and students involved in IA and IoT networking" so it's on the technical side of things. It was published in 2016.
Want to take a look before you go through the (admittedly lengthy) registration at TradePub before you download the book? Wiley lists the book description and table of contents on their website.
If you're wondering what the Internet of Things (IoT) is, it refers to interconnected devices such as heart monitoring implants, biochip transponders on farm animals, cameras streaming live feeds of wild animals in coastal waters, automobiles with built-in sensors, DNA analysis devices for environmental/food/pathogen monitoring and much more.
