On December 16, 2020, the EU adopted its new Cybersecurity Strategy, which aims to make Europe a resilient, technological sovereign leader in cyberspace.
The Strategy will bolster Europe’s collective resilience against cyber threats, and help to ensure that all citizens and businesses can fully benefit from trustworthy and reliable services and digital tools.
Among other strategic initiatives, it proposes regulation to ensure an “Internet of Secure Things” to prevent that one single badly protected device becomes the point of failure in case of a cyber-attack.
The H2020 IoTAC project will implement a new modular IoT security gateway based on the security by design paradigm, with a strong access control component. Devices and systems connected through the gateway will be highly protected against cyber-attacks and diverse security threats.
