IP Protection LevelNo patent as yet
Description of the innovation projectThe Internet of Things are objects and entities provided with unique identifiers and the ability to automatically transfer data over a network. Today, security cannot be considered as an optional feature, but it must be in the very DNA of every project, especially the ones that’s going to have a large industry impact. Our idea of security is to implement a security package composed by: • IoT security framework for securing and evaluating IoT ecosystems • communications protection device • data validation devices
State of dev.Concept
Industrial applicationIndustrial Internet of Things (IoT)
Market segmentConsumer, Automotive, Public Administration, Smart Cities, Hardware manufacturer (Sensors, Actuators, etc.).
Advantage factorOver 50 billion of internet connected devices are expected by 2020. The short time-to-market is leaving behind the security features. There are many IoT malware in the wild already, and one of them have led to the creation of an over 25000 items botnet. Cases of vulnerabilities in famous IoT systems (like Samsung SmartThings) are in the news already. The competitive advantage of our project is to be able to succeed in IoT ecosystems implementation without caring about threats.
Commercial challengeNew services or devices development can be enabled and can grow up through the contents of the proposed package. At the moment of this writing, it seems that no IoT security standards have been consolidated and widely adopted, so the proposed research could be either a technology enabler or booster.
Publications and Customer ReferecesWe’ve developed an internal benchmark on different elements (IoT Security Framework, Iris Scanner, professional services for IoT ecosystems security audit, etc.). The benchmark highlights that, while IoT are quickly spreading, no IoT security standards have been consolidated and widely adopted so far.
