Press Release No. 4

By September 12, 2022September 22nd, 2022News

The H2020 IoTAC project started its pilot operations

The consortium of industrial actors, research groups and academia from seven European countries focuses on improving the resilience of IoT service environments.


5. September 2022 – The Security by Design IoT Development and Certificate Framework with Front-end Access Control (IoTAC) project has entered a new phase with the start of its pilot operations.

The project has completed the implementation of the core functions of its security modules – access control, attack detection, honeypot, runtime monitoring system – and now the pilot operations will start.

The modules, in various configurations, integrated with an IoT security gateway will be validated with four IoT services: smart home, connected cars, prosumer cell and drone operation. The diverse environments will allow the consortium to test the combined architecture against substantially different requirements and to build a protective system which is domain agnostic. The pilots have the objective to prove that the new security technology can be easily integrated into legacy operations and its integration substantially improves the security level of the services.

The pilots will comprise two phases. The first operation period will be followed by a detailed assessment and additional development and the program will be completed with more comprehensive operations early next year.

The consortium comprises all stakeholders of the IoT ecosystem, service operators, OEMs, technology providers, developers, security experts, as well as research and academic partners. End users will be involved throughout the pilot operations.
