The IoTAC – Security By Design IoT Development and Certificate Framework with Front-end Access Control – project aims to deliver a secure and privacy-friendly IoT architecture that will facilitate the development of more resilient IoT service environments. Our system, comprising of a secure gateway, runtime security applications and cloud-based service platforms, will provide comprehensive protection for service environments of various industry domain. The technology will not only protect new deployments but can also enhance the security level of legacy operations.
What is this solution offering that’s different?
The IoTAC architecture comprises high security level components and solutions like the use of chip cards, PKI encryption, root of trust, secure booting, audit logs and many more. Security is assured all through the design, implementation and operation phases.
The IoTAC architecture comprises multiple hardware and software components which will allow flexible configuration options to support diverse service environments of various security levels. Underlying core features will be supported with optional add-ons.
Security countermeasures will be implemented both at hardware- and at software-level, comprising a secure gateway, front-end access control, honeypots, checkpointing, AI&ML algorithms and a runtime monitoring system.
The IoTAC framework
The IoTAC framework comprises the Security Baseline as the foundation, the IoTAC Software Security by Design (SSD) principles and the Security Assurance Model (SAM) platform, which will unite in a formal Certification procedure exposed as a service.
