Development and maintenance of secure IoT systems for companies (IoT-ScuBa)

Thanks to the Internet of Things, smart household appliances can be controlled and machines in companies can communicate with each other. Networking systems requires high security standards such as regular updates, data encryption, threat analysis and the detection of attacks by attack detection systems. The project “IoT security through cyclical, precisely interlinked threat analysis and attack detection” focuses on facilitating the development and maintenance of secure IoT systems for companies.

The researchers at Fraunhofer IEM are working on Miele’s networked vacuum robots and the security of Diebold Nixdorf’s ATMs, among other things. A catalog of protection mechanisms is to be drawn up for threats to these devices. Countermeasures to threats should be incorporated into the life cycle as internal security requirements for hardware, software and processes.
